PARIS — Alexis Mabille, the eccentric dandy, Paris-based fashion designer who launched his label six years ago with a line of bow ties and pants, this September will open his first flagship, based on Rue de Grenelle, in the Saint Germain district here. The site, which will boast an interior filled with mirrors, inspired by the couture dressing rooms of yore, will stock Mabille’s women’s wear collection, including some unisex pieces.
“It will be like an intimate changing room with a Dorothy Draper feel, but young and fresh as I love mixing classic with contemporary,” said Mabille, adding that the upmarket location goes perfectly with his creations, which are based on “twisted bourgeoisie.”

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
