Loving Alexis Bittar Jewelry

I’m absolutely loving Alexis Bittar’s jewelry designs right now. He is known mostly for his beyond amazing Lucite pieces but also recognized for his major costume jewelry collections. Back in 1990 Alexis began hand carving his first Lucite collection from his own apartment. He immediately hit the streets of New York selling his pieces, where he was discovered by the fashion director at Bergdorf Goodman’s. It was this big break that allowed him to move on to create collections for uh-mazing brands such as Burberry and Michael Kors. Perhaps his biggest footprint into pop culture came when Bittar teamed up with famed Sex and the City stylist Patricia Fields to create custom statement pieces for all of the Sex and the City ladies. The list of celebrities that love Alexis’s work is endless. In 2004 he opened his very  first boutique in NYC and by 2010 he had opened his fifth store, right here in Los Angeles. Bittar is now prepping for a new store opening in Venice. Check out some of my favorite pieces below which are available at Shopbop.com
