After four glorious years of retailing in Soho, it was recently revealed that jewelry designer Alexis Bittar would be expanding with a new little jewel box on hopping West Village retail stretch Bleecker Street. Today, a Racked correspondent sends an image of the man's storefront, which is papered up with the same shot he's using on his website: a spooky-looking brunette model sporting Bittar's trademark statement-making bangles. Hidden behind that window covering, work is wrapping up on the boutique, which is scheduled to open within the next month or so.
