What are you doing this Thursday? How about heading down to Bleecker Street? Alexis Bittar will be hosting a little fundraiser packed with champagne, chocolates and shopping! Only, a few of our favorite things. And if you spend $150 or more, you receive a free pink Lucite bangle bracelet. Nothing better than a charitable evening to get you through the work week, right?
Alexis Bittar Lands in San Francisco
It may be a small space, but it packs a lot of punch. Alexis Bittar is officially open for business in San Francisco, and the launch party Saturday night had people spilling onto the foggy sidewalks of Fillmore. The store stands out like a gem, with walls painted by artist Marcela D'Aprile, Bittar's ongoing taxidermy animal fixtures, and the requisite jewelry collection. When asked what took the designer so long to open an SF store, Alexis answered, “We came kinda gangbusters. We did four stores at once; one in San Francisco, two in LA, and Chicago. I think the location is absolutely perfect. We scouted in June and it's changed even since then. More stores have opened.” When I pointed out that Kiehls is relocating their upper Fillmore store to right across the street, Alexis cooed, “Oh, I love that.”
