A pure experimentalist at heart, Bliss Lau believes in accessory design without boundaries. In each collection, she questions how she can push the limits, how she can blur the line between a garment and an accessory.
For Bliss, jewelry enhances forgotten parts of the body. [The Tuxedo] A body chain sold in sizes using chain to visually trace the seamlines of an invisible garment.
Half Chinese and half Caucasian, she was raised in Hawaii and educated in New York City at The Parsons School of Design. She began making handbags immediately after completing her BFA. Responding to the ever-changing markets around her, she decided to launch her jewelry collection in 2008.
Recent seasons have drawn inspiration from her Hawaiian culture and the mechanics of balance. Recent collections, “Mysterious Concealment” and “Embraced” taught her about the importance of the female form: musculature, flexibility and the body’s simple visual power to seduce. She focused on “drawing” with a mixture of leather and metal, creating complex channels that heighten the contours of the body.
