Alexandre Daillance x CLOSED

Alexandre Daillance from Paris is not your typical entrepreneur. Inspired by Virgil Abloh, he founded his first company, the high-end streetwear brand NASASEASONS, as a teenager – and convinced the iconic Parisian concept store Colette to sell his products. Shortly after, Rihanna was seen with one of them – and the rest is history. Today, Alexandre is 24 years old and already thinks about giving back. In 2020, he started the organisation PROSPECT 100 to connect young creatives with leading companies (from Kering to Swatch) and influential individuals (from Steve Wozniak to Emily Oberg). Alexandre, aka Millinsky, also regularly cooperates with the likes of Eminem or The Rolling Stones, creating merch capsule collections. We met him in Berlin, talked to him about his first steps as an entrepreneur and his definition of success.

PS: Stay tuned for our joint capsule collection – Millinsky x Closed is coming this autumn!

The
Interview

What motivated you to create your brand at only 18 years old?

I fell in love with streetwear when I was in high school. This genre of fashion became more and more prominent back then with the help of social media and early platforms such as Tumblr. I remember following Virgil Abloh’s Tumblr page Pyrex Vision and being fascinated by the curation of images. Virgil had an incredible gift for spreading awareness and excitement around things he loved. He was a great storyteller, and he inspired me to start my own project a few years later. Just like Virgil with Off-White, my brand enables me to share my own stories, taste and perspectives on culture in general.

How did you get big stars like Rihanna to notice NASASEASONS?

When I started NASASEASONS, my first goal was to get the brand stocked at Colette which was one of the most influential concept stores in the world back then. I used to go to Colette every weekend since I was 14 and I knew the influence it had in fashion around the world. After multiple emails and a meeting with the buying director Sarah, NASASEASONS ended up being stocked during the summer of 2015. It was never clear how Rihanna and other celebrities like Beyoncé and Zendaya got their NASASEASONS pieces, but there is a high chance they (or their stylists) bought them at Colette!

Can you tell us more about PROSPECT 100 – how would you describe it in one sentence and what inspired you to launch it?

PROSPECT 100 organises global design competitions for young people aged 25 and under in partnerships with leading and pioneering companies. I co-founded the organisation during the first COVID lockdowns in spring 2020 as I wanted to provide valuable opportunities to young people who had been so affected by the pandemic all around the world. I tried to leverage my contacts in the industry to build judging panels composed of incredibly inspiring figures such as Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak, Colette’s co-founder Sarah Andelman, Highsnobiety’s founder David Fischer, supermodel Amber Valletta, Swedish artist André Saraiva, American graphic designer Paula Scher among others to make the competitions as high-level as possible from the start. We have been extremely fortunate to also receive the trust of some of the biggest companies such as Nickelodeon, Kering and Swatch to partner with us to provide lifechanging prizes and opportunities to the winners and finalists. So far, we have had over 10,000 people apply to our competitions since spring 2020 from 92 different countries. It has been a truly incredible experience!

What were the main differences in founding Prospect 100 and NASASEASONS?

NASASEASONS was my first project, and it was a personal one. I saw the brand as a canvas for creativity and sharing ideas I thought were worth sharing. Whereas PROSPECT 100, the goal of the organisation is about helping others and shining light on talents from all around the world. In some ways, I co-founded PROSPECT 100 to help all the 18 years old designers that are, just like me a few years before, trying to figure out how to break through and get their work recognised by influential people. I am extremely proud of the project as I think it is important to give back as much as possible. I was fortunate to get Colette to recognise my work when I was a teenager, but not everyone has this chance. The older I get the more I appreciate that success comes from also helping other people, and not just helping ourselves. There is a true satisfaction in seeing other people win!

How did you get brands like Google or judges like Andre Saraiva, Emily Oberg or Charlotte Gainsbourg to work with you?

It’s all about telling the right story! Whether you are creating a brand like NASASEASONS or an organisation like PROSPECT 100, you need to tell a story. Why do you do what you do? If you are able to convey an authentic story you can reach millions of people. The most successful brands in the world all have in common that they are great storytellers. It is easy nowadays to figure out how to reach high-profile companies or individuals, but the challenge is really about explaining why we believe they fit into the story we are trying to tell.

Why do you think it’s so important to empower the young generation?

I am a fan of creative and fresh ideas. There are so many people around the world who have a gift. One of the main reasons why we will never see their work is probably a lack of confidence, and that is extremely unfortunate. Empowering is about giving confidence, and that’s the mission of PROSPECT 100 and to some extent one of my personal missions as well. Virgil Abloh gave me that confidence when I was younger, and it was a be a true honour for me to also inspire the younger generation. Once again, it is about giving back!

What does it take for someone under 25 to become successful today?

Anyone can be successful nowadays. The internet has made it possible to start a business in just a few days and potentially be successful. I think the key is to be passionate, focussed and disciplined. If you have all those three, then you are likely to be successful at anything you do. But it is important to start with passion, if you are not extremely passionate about something then you will most likely struggle along the way and be unhappy.

What’s your definition of ‘success’?

For me the definition of success is living a life that feels authentic to who I am. We are all different. We have different values, goals and purposes. The key is really defining beforehand what you believe makes you happy and content, and then work towards that. If you are able to reach it, then that’s success to me. Life is a journey and everyone has ups and downs, but if you stick to your values, goals and purposes then you will most likely be successful.

How do you deal with setbacks or challenges?

Just like everyone else, I have had several setbacks over the years and there are never easy to deal with. The best way to move forward is to accept them and learn from them. There is always a positive in the negative, and the key is to take all setbacks as a lesson. Every experience, good or bad, shapes who you are and prepares you for the rest of your life. It’s all about building resilience.

How does a typical day in your life look like?

It starts with an iced latte, some sports at home and then a lot of emails and creative reflection.

What are your top 5 favourite spots in Paris?

My favourite places in Paris are Jardin du Luxembourg, Ferdi restaurant, Café des Deux Magots, Little Red Door bar and Musée de l’Orangerie!

What are your top 5 favourite places in Europe?

Venice, London, Rome, Berlin and of course Paris.
