Alexis Bittar has recently launched his new jewelry stores in Los Angeles (Hollywood and Venice), San Francisco, and Chicago. All of his shop designs – including the first ones in New York (West Village, Madison, and Soho) – are inspired by nature; decorated with flower patterns and stuffed animals. Some of the animals are from old museum collections; others are taken from wildlife preserves and zoos after they have died. Some were actually pets of the taxidermist. Take a look!
