Newsflash: Artist behind D.EFECT's print of SS15? A 2-year-old toddler.

The colorful print that contemporary clothing brand D.EFECT presented this season was created by none other than world's youngest designer: the daughter of the brand's Creative Director Egle Ziemyte.

A big fan of art, Ziemyte finds painting to be her second biggest passion, following her calling for design. It's no surprise that she started teaching her daughter how to paint at a very young age. “When creating SS15 I was completely immersed in motherhood, having just given birth to my firstborn. Seeing the world through my daughter's eyes was such a big contrast to the world surrounding me, so the collection is heavily influenced by playful influences from childhood. It's all contrasting to great, monumental architecture – another big influence for my work and a great passion of mine” said Ziemyte.

Playing with her daughter Sofija, teaching her how to create the first paintings by splashing paint on paper, she envisioned the designs of the newest collection. This is when the designer came up with an idea to use Sofija's painting as the print of the season.

The print was named “Youngest designer” and was used on three different styles: a t-shirt, a dress and a long shirt dress, that is one of the signature styles of the brand.

D.EFECT is a brand mostly celebrated for its outstanding outerwear collections. The brand is based on the notion of the beauty of imperfection. Separating “D” from “Defect” Ziemyte created a double meaning to the brand name – in her designs she strives for the effect of the defect. “The painting of my 2-year-old daughter seemed like a perfect fit not just to complement this collection, but also to the brand itself. Nowhere else you would see prints created by such a young painter” explained Ziemyte, who gave birth to her second daughter only a month ago. What can we expect from her? It seems like creative ideas run in the family.

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.
