Bliss Lau: Rising & Falling

A million lines of code, an air pollution vacuum, NIGO for Uniqlo UT and more in our weekly look at the web

“Pearl represents purity and perfection,” Hawaii-born jewelry designer Bliss Lau explains in The Avant/Garde Diaries’ video, in which she addresses her inspiration and the significance of her source material for her latest 13-piece collection. The video itself is strikingly beautiful, as Lau explores mythic outdoor locations, set to a thoughtful voiceover. Invoking the elements and their historic associations, she provides insight into her equally expressive designs. It’s not a fashion video, it’s a character study on a talented designer.
