Alexis Bittar's New Store Features Jewelry and Hybrid Taxidermy

Alexis Bittar has opened his first San Francisco location. The 1,100 square foot shop on Fillmore Street houses three of Bittar's collections: Elements, Lucite, and Miss Havisham. The store also sells handpicked antique items from Bittar's personal collection.

"The store feels intimate and chic, as if you are in a luxurious hotel that Audrey Hepburn would have stayed in," Bittar says. "There are original 1930s light fixtures with hand-painted cherry blossoms over raw silk wallpaper. I love having my own stores because I can create an environment that suits my jewelry and expresses the indivisuality of the brand."

For those of you familiar with Bittar's other stores, the San Francisco shop also features Bittar's signature taxidermy collection. Custom-created by taxidermist Frank J. Zitz, the chic boutique houses a variety of medium-sized animals—hybrids, to be precise. There will be an African warthog on the body of a black bear, a woolly ram with dark brown dreads, and an African klipsspringer with oryx horns.
