Accessorizing with Bliss Lau.

Accessories just got more fun with Bliss Lau.

Invariably seeking to blur the lines between the garment and accessory, Bliss Lau represents the juxtaposition of culture, design and aesthetic; half Chinese and half American, Bliss was raised in Honolulu, Hawaii and educated in New York City. Bliss launched her handbag collection immediately after completing a degree in apparel design from Parsons School of Design and finally four years later transitioned the collection into the markedly distinct body-jewelry of today.

By virtue of her approach to design and accessories without boundaries, jewelry has become a new medium to Bliss: a method to reshape and enhance the most beautiful and forgotten parts of the body. All of the jewelry is created and designed three-dimensionally using traditional garment draping techniques. Each season, Bliss focuses on a new part of the body to enhance and decorate. The jewelry draws inspiration from history, the study of Hawaiian culture, as well as New York’s architecture such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Chrysler building.

As seen in Dossier, we just unpacked these featured pieces.
