Alexis' inspiration drives from his Haute Couture collection with details in contrast material, embroidered tulle with ruban, millefeuille as couture dress, key chain from corset couture and of course the fur details.

Whether playing with traditional codes, giving silhouettes a savvy twist or mixing different eras, with every collection, Alexis Mabille cultivates a spirit that is equal parts chic and fun-loving. In lifting from both masculine and feminine styles, the brand revisits men’s and women’s wardrobes alike.

Elegance and a natural casual attitude come together with a sporty-chic attitude. Graphic lines structure the looks; movement suggests sensuality. The DNA of the brand are strong and one of them is the Bow that is one of the major axis which made the brand famous and summarizes best the initial idea of the Alexis Mabille shape.

He includes always Frivolity as an art of flirting on the edge of sensuality and as a Mirror-collector of any kinds, he plays around the fascination by the reflection of the light.

Borrowing from a very French sensibility, the Mabille style offers a highly contemporary, cosmopolitan allure. There is no wonder why Alexis Mabille is one of the most awaited brands to be available in Hong Kong and China soon.

Spotlight On: Models are perfect. Or are they?

Makeup, Photoshop, instagram filters- we all know by now that we are continuously presented a beautified version of a person (including ourselves!). For a little (48,000 You Tube views!) experiment, the exceptional and unconventional clothing brand D.EFECT decided to put models in the spotlight and ask a simple question – what imperfections do they have?

This is the result:

According to the brand, the video might provoke the reaction " Oh, but they are still beautiful." or even " How dare they complain!".

"It says a lot about the state we're in, if even the girls who we consider to be the reason why women constantly feel insecure about themselves, can't stop listing their imperfections. They do not feel like models in ads at all. Because no one does. And that is the whole point of the campaign, which states that you are beautiful precisely because you are imperfect. Difference is the source of the beauty, not the pre-supposed media standard. D.EFECT hopes that is a tiny drop of comfort for all us, even if for a few minutes (or days!) and a kind reminder that the beautiful is never regular."

What do you think about this campaign? Let us know in the comments!

D.EFECT was founded in 2009 and is run by Creative Director Egle Ziemyte, a designer who has based her ideas on the notion of "the beauty of imperfection". D.EFECT creates contemporary collections for women who can stand out by their sheer personality and who despise uniforms.
