Plastic Fantastic

Alexis Bittar began working with Lucite in his jewelry designs 25 years ago, and the mutable acrylic has become a staple in his bold, colorful baubles. Alongside Bittar’s fall 2015 presentation, which debuted last month in New York, the brand feted its anniversary with Lucite, commissioning original works from contemporary artists Mickalene Thomas, Natasha Law, Cordy Ryman, and Juliette Losq. The pieces will be auctioned online via Artspace, with all proceeds benefitting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.
