In the early 1990s, the jewelry designs of Alexis Bittar took off like a rocket. His jewelry was unlike anything else.
This hinged clamper bracelet is made of white satiny Lucite with a goldtone geometric band around the center. The look is both smooth and edgy at the same time.
The bracelet measures 7 inches inches around the inside. It measures 5/8 inch wide.
Bracelet is signed on the inside..ALEXIS BITTAR.
From the side, you can see the rivets that hold the metal inside the Lucite.
The magnetic closure is strong and secure.
Excellent vintage condition.
A little history - Bittar had a short but very sweet run. From selling his handmade jewelry pieces on the streets of Soho, he went on to see his jewelry sold at Bergdorf Goodman who saw his work and agreed to carry his designs. Then came Saks Fifth Avenue, the Museum of Modern Art, and Harrods. Not a bad start.
In 1998, Bittar launched the first of what would become many designer collaborations, working with Burberry, the British luxury fashion house. Subsequent collaborations included legendary stylist and costume designer Patricia Field for Sex and the City, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, Estee Lauder, Michael Kors, Jason Wu, Jeremy Scott, Michael Angel, and Phillip Lim.
In 2015, Bittar sold his entire company to Brooks Brothers and took up the pursuit of philanthropy. A success story in every way.
