Ph/ by me
It's always fun to see the backgrounds of a good product, to see from whom and where it came from. When it's a starting project and a young enviroment, it's even better. And when it's a double portion of that? Bingo. Alex & Pavlina, the creative minds behind two great start-up brands - AlexMonhart (a menswear brand, now with a new line of unisex backpacks) and BY MIST (a leather line of clutches) - welcomed me for a coffee in their newly joint studio, the HALK. And you're more than welcome to visit. What is now a multi-functional, student vibe office and atelier altogether might soon turn into a professional showroom, because once you get to meet these two, you know they are sure at what they want and they are ready to work for it. All the moodboards and inspiring quotes around the rooms are not just plain decoration, the brands have strict vision and concept. And I'm sure they're on their best way to success. After just a few months on the market, the brands are selling both online and at stockists like Leeda or Freshlabels, soon possibly heading to foreign countries too. Both girls are now preparing their new collections and I can't help but recommend you to visit their little creative hub too.
INSIDER TIP / Both brands offer made-to-measure service! Visit them, discuss your colour and/or material ideas and get your one of a kind personalized accessory. Just imagine how amazing would the 'Primus' backpack in white or the 'Meissa' clutch in baby blue look!
