We’re Gilt Groupe fanatics! One of our favorite places to shop, Gilt Groupe is a members-only online shopping destination for discounted designer merchandise. It’s a daily must-check-out site! Alexandra Wilkis Wilson and Alexis Maybank are the brains (and beauties) behind the hugely successful online retailer, which has grown to include everything from home furnishings to food. It’s become a pioneer in this rapidly growing market space. We were eager to discover what these two stylish tastemakers are currently loving in fashion, beauty, and beyond!
Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, Founder and Chief Merchandising Officer, Gilt Groupe
Style Philosophy: Classic, fun, and a sprinkle of spice.
Fashion & Shopping: I am on a Marni (via Gilt.com) kick these days, but the truth is I love hundreds of designers. I have many favorite stores all around the world — from designer, to contemporary, to vintage! I enjoy shopping while traveling more than in my hometown of New York City (and of course, I love Gilt.com!).
Travel Destination: I went to Bali on my honeymoon in 2007 and can’t wait to go back!
Drinks & Dinner: My go-to neighborhood dinner spot in NYC is Serafina. I also love Soho House (I especially like the ones in L.A. and Miami) for drinks.
To Add Sparkle: I wear Ella Tein jewelry!
Alexis Maybank, Founder and President Premium Products and Services
Style Philosophy: Strongly feminine with a dash of downtown for good measure.
Fashion & Shopping: Zac Posen & Prabal Gurung are my two favorite designers right now. I love shopping at Phillip Lim’s LA Boutique and, of course, Gilt Groupe! Mecox Gardens is great for home furnishings.
Accessories & Shoes: I like Miu Miu & Christian Louboutin for dressing up, and Toms for casual days. Lately I’ve been wearing chunky jewelry by Ben Amun, and I love House of Waris‘ bird jewelry collection.
Travel Destination: My favorite cities are Rio, Rome, and Istanbul.
