Fearless Fridays: Alexis Bittar (aka my lucite love)

Fearless Fridays: Alexis Bittar (aka my lucite love)

More than four years ago when I worked as a Nordstrom personal stylist, I was introduced to Alexis Bittar’s jewelry. His fondness for vintage baubles (no doubt influenced by his antique collecting parents) is reflected in his use of lucite.

I was taken by the sculptural element of Bittar’s jewelry, and the use of color.
And in one of my first blog posts I showed how I liked mixing my vintage jewelry with his square bangles.

My love for his aesthetic has expanded recently. Bittar used style icon Iris Apfel for his recent spring campaign. Using the ninety-four-year old aligns with his effort to broaden the fashion industry’s often narrow view of beauty.

I love clothing.  L-O-V-E.  It’s a great expression of how you’re feeling.  To be able to change your look depending on your whim is what excites me.  Think of it as wearable art.

One of the best combinations is when fashion and being green meet.  As a fashion stylist I am in awe of the sheer magnitude of clothing that is produced everywhere.  It can be overwhelming…

Which is why it was kismet to find Laced with Romance in one of my favorite magazines, Nylon.  A majority of pieces are reworked vintage that manage to look both of the moment  and an ancient artifact from an archaeological dig.
