POSTER GIRL: CFDA Accessory Designer of the Year Alexis Bittar’s love affair with grand dames will continue with this season’s poster blitz going up during New York Fashion Week featuring none other than actress and model Lauren Hutton. The two met nearly 20 years ago when Bittar was still selling his jewelry on the corner of Spring Street in New York. “This handsome and energetic kid, so young you couldn’t believe he actually designed it,” explained Hutton. “His jewelry is like art and still doesn’t look like anything I have ever seen.” Artist and photographer Jack Pierson was tapped to capture the intimate and casual portrait-like images of the actress in Bittar’s jewelry. Hutton follows Joan Collins, who was plastered across the city last season.
