For Bittar, the pieces are bold, graphic, and immediately gratifying in the sense that they deliver an on-the-pulse design everyone is in the mood to wear. For Wu's part, rich textures and finishes betray a seamless mix of polish and cool-girl verve that underlies much of the young designer's genius.
In Wu's description, the aim of the collaboration is to "create movement with metal. The collection was inspired by the simplicity of the 70's but has the texture of crumpled paper."
The oversized, sinuously contoured cuffs and rings, are finished in a luxe matte black and, as with all Alexis Bittar pieces, crafted entirely by hand in his Brooklyn workshop.
