About Alis Mita brand
Alis Mita is a brand that creates elegant and modern handbags and belts with an unconventional touch.
Their bags have the perfect proportions, lines and shapes. The materials used are of the highest quality. Brand was created by Alis in 2018 in Paris. She is truly passionate about fabrics, art, architecture, design, and particularly the Art Deco era. All her interests are the core of the brand aesthetic.
Her handbags are fully customizable. The new owner of the handbag can decide which finishes touches and materials they want in their handbags. They can choose a model, colour, and flaps of the handbag. They can even buy different flaps and change them accordingly to their mood, and fashion choices simply to add something new to the handbag.
The first collection of Alis Mita was called « Muse of the Impossible ». They selected some most inspiring women who later became muses of the new designs. Each handbag also received a name after its muse. So there are:
The Oprah bag is a tribute to Oprah Winfrey who taught us that we are all the artists of our lives. Her sparkling spirit, her delectable joy and her pragmatic wisdom are eternal inspirations.
The handbag Zaha is a tribute to Zaha Hadid who inspires us to embrace the unexpected while taking risks.
The Simone handbag is a tribute to Simone de Beauvoir who inspires us to reject the limits of a situation and promote an outlook for the future.
The last model is also the one that I chose and I had a Coup De Coeur when I saw it. However Alis the founder and creative director told me that each bag has its spirit, soul, and self-expression and it will radiate it to its owner. She also hopes that her designs will spark the joy in women who will carry them. That they will be more than a simple handbag. They will create a beautiful relationship with a woman.
Alis Mita VISION
The vision is an invitation to self-expression and these are words that they use:
Because we believe every woman has the power to reinvent herself and become who she really is, our dream is to inspire her to explore her authenticity so that she can stand up in the world with grace, force and confidence.
MUSE of Alis Mita Brand
As I mentioned earlier this Parisian brand was inspired by 3 powerful and inspirational women. However, there are more muses for Alis Mita brand. They believe that a modern, bold, creative and elegant woman is their biggest MUSE. They are inspired by women and they create for women. Virtues like: confidence combined with a vivid lifestyle are the inspiration for their designs. I was truly honoured to be called one of the muses and I really feel like one. Simone handbag is not an ordinary handbag. When I wear it I feel like I have a statement piece in my hands. People are curious what is the brand, as they can’t clearly recognize the subtle logo, yet they can judge that it’s a special and luxurious piece. I chose neutral colours with a touch of python skin. I like this colour mix as it really matches everything I wear. It looks lovely with neutrals, but also silver, gold, white and black. It’s a handbag that can be worn all day long, including the more special evening celebrations. I love such a versatile wardrobe essential.
How I styled Simone Handbag
For the Alis Mita campaign, I wanted to wear something that is very me and is also matching the style of the brand. So I chose a Mango Pepper Linen Shirt Dress in Pastel Grey. I paired it with white sandals in the first version. For the second version of the look I added more colours. I was wearing the turquoise fur sandals from Alila Brand and a headscarf. It was a more playful look.
On the Alis Mita website, you can customize your handbag. Here is the step-by-step guide on how to do it. You can choose the basic colour of the bags and flaps. For example in Simona handbag these options are available:
Basis: Taurillon, full grain semi-aniline leather, matt appearance, smooth touch, bespoke beige colour “Hopedust”
Flap: Hand-painted Blue Lagoon python, smooth touch, satin-finished, iridescent blue-violet touches that change colours in contact with the light.
So it’s a nice variety.
CPHFW and my style during Munthe Fashion Show
For Copenhagen Fashion Week SS 22/23 I decided to take this beautiful piece with me. I styled it to create a simple, metallic look. I mixed a silver silk dress with gold flat mules to match the colours on the python exotic leather flap of Simone bag.
A little hello from Copenhagen. As you know it’s a very bicycle-oriented city. aMost of the fashion guests that stayed at Villa Copenhagen travelled to the shows on bicycles. I did the same! Luckyly the Simone Bag perfectly fitted the bicycle basket 🙂
