— “What
is Mafia's

“Thanks to its heritage and culture, MAFIA has simply invented a new expertise in line with current trends and the expectations of both brands and the advertising market.

Our strength is our perfect knowledge of the fashion and luxury goods sector. We have a detailed knowledge of this very singular environment. As a result, we analyse and guide the brands with accuracy and precision.”

— “How
has the world

“In the last decade, communication has become of paramount importance. Brands strategies and tactics are in permanent evolution, luxury goods have become popular and popular has become snobbish. This has led to total confusion as luxury brands and mass premium brands use the same techniques to succeed.”

— “What is your strategy to find
the best solutions for your clients?”

“Our strategy lies first and foremost in creativity: we plan, analyze, synthesize all the signs of the world in a mood-tape (created 4 times/year): ranging from Art to Fashion, from Design to Perfumes... Reconciling the past with the future, the too-much with the not-enough, marketing and creation, in order to obtain criteria that will enable us to advise a brand, reposition it in line with current trends, from product to communication as well as the wider competition.”

“We are a force offering ongoing tailored propositions to achieve the success of all these brands that place their trust in us.”

— “Have clients’ needs changed?”

“Yes, many executives have realized that their brand needs to be constantly on the move. I call that “staying alive and creating desire”. This requires an outside viewpoint, a hindsight to analyze and decide which options are best in a context in perpetual evolution, and even revolution. For them, we are a force offering ongoing tailored propositions to achieve the success of all these brands that place their trust in us.”

— “What is your secret?”

“Our secret is to have a vision that will help brands progress: by constantly identifying what tomorrow’s trends will be, not having any set conventions or taboos, but clearly defined lines. Whether this is to reconcile fundamentals and trends or to make a complete turn, we create and re-examine the situation day after day. In this field, there is no exact science!”
