Alexis Bittar launches line of fine jewellery
The designer steps up his game
Over the last twenty years, American designer Alexis Bittar has been making jewellery, but in the life of any great talent there comes a time to step things up – and Bittar is officially upping his game. At the end of next week he will launch a complete line of new designs, which will be called 'fine jewellery'.
The debut collection uses precious and semi-precious stones such as amethysts, iolites, chalcedony and diamonds. 18-carat gold and sterling silver are also incorporated. And the inspiration points? "90s' grunge, 50s' femininity and imitations of prickly thorns" — sign us up immediately.
The new collection is scheduled to go on sale on October 17th and will appear in the New York department store Neiman Marcus, as well as online on Bittar's website.
