Alexquisite is the creative brand and brainchild of Greek designer Alexandros Kotoulas. Born into a family of furriers in Kastoria — the most important centre of the European fur industry since the 17th century — Alexandros has always been curious about how things are made and work.
After an intensive study period at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he obtained his masters degree in Engineering, Alexandros decided to shift into a more creative environment. Soon after his graduation he was accepted at the prestigious Design Academy Eindhoven, where he has slowly discovered his passion for design, soft materials and leather.
His training continued at the leather goods department of Maison Louis Vuitton in Paris, where for nearly a year Alexandros worked on developing accessories for the brand’s women’s line, both for the seasonal and the permanent collections. His stage at Louis Vuitton also gave him the opportunity to be involved with other special projects at the maison.
Alexquisite stands for superior quality, hand-made craftsmanship and intelligent design that is tailor-made to the needs and tastes of a contemporary, mobile aesthete. The core principle of Alexquisite’s design ethos is soft design — a design language that blends together practicality and function with intuitive beauty and a playful involvement of all the senses.
Based between Greece, Paris and The Netherlands, Alexandros Kotoulas is always open to collaborating with companies around the world, and challenging himself with new, exciting projects.
