Golden Ice Marquis Strand Necklace from Alexis Bittar

1. Rock Stars

Known for his signature Lucite bangles and designer collaborations (including recent creations for Thierry Mugler and 3.1 Phillip Lim), Alexis Bittar is going upscale with the recent launch of his Fine Collection. The new statement-making pieces have a design sensibility that incorporates the elegance of the ‘50s with elements of ’90s grunge and punk. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings blend marquis-and custom-cut diamonds with 18K gold and less-expected stones such as Blue Quartz and Green Amethyst. “This is not your grandma’s tennis bracelet,” says store manager Jaclyn Schneider of the cutting-edge collection, who notes that many Alexis Bittar fans who typically shop in New York are just discovering the Greenwich Avenue store. Standout pieces include the Golden Ice Marquis Strand Necklace with curved 18K gold marquis, yellow sapphires, diamond pave and custom-cut Clear Quartz.

2. Slim Swim

Checklist for the Seychelles or your beach destination of choice: 1) SPF 50 2) swimsuit that makes you look like a SoulCycle goddess. Stocking up on that second must-have just got a little easier with the opening of the Eres boutique on Greenwich Avenue. The shop is filled with flattering French swimsuits and lingerie designed by Valerie Delafosse, a fashion veteran who has worked for Dior, Cacharel and Chloe. Eres’ body-sculpting swimwear is made from a proprietary fabric that’s intended to help women look as though they’ve lost a size; yet the sophisticated styles make a statement with color, graphics and cool cutouts. For the upcoming summer season, watch for the geometric, color-blocked Puzzle line, inspired by Ziggy Stardust, as well as the Ibiza-esque Spotlight collection with sexy tassels and macramé details. Sarongs, cover-ups and après-beach maxi-dresses complete the look.

3. Hit Print

If you have’t heard of the 3-D printing craze, you probably still have a Blockbuster card in your wallet. The technology that has been getting huge amounts of attention for years now, is finally available and accessible to the average consumer. Of course Greenwich Avenue was a must-have location for Makerbot, the worldwide leader in 3-D technology. Jennifer Lawton, Greenwich resident and president of MakerBot, explains, “It is awesome to be doing something that unleashes creativity and innovation. What could be cooler than that? You think differently after you bring a 3-D printer into your life.” Indeed. Who needs to think outside of the box when you can print your own box?
