Renowned fashion designer and fashion faucet brand collaborate on bathroom collection

INDIANAPOLIS, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Luxury brand Brizo® faucets first partnered with fashion designer Jason Wu in 2006, with the intent to bridge the gap between home and fashion design.

Now, the two design houses are excited to announce their formal collaboration on an exciting collection of fittings and accessories for the bath to be launched in late 2011.

"Brizo and Jason Wu are both luxury brands that share the same design vision: timeless style that is innovative and fresh," said Brian Nobbe, director of the Brizo brand. "Collaborating with Jason on a bathroom faucet collection further strengthens our position that fashion is about more than just the clothes you wear; it's a lifestyle."

Through their relationship, the brands have demonstrated that high fashion can be achieved at home. Jason Wu has created exclusive fashion designs for Brizo advertising campaigns and events, and his New York residence is outfitted with Brizo Loki® and Pascal® faucets.

"Designing interior fixtures is an opportunity to challenge myself and branch out into a new category," said Jason Wu. "The materials and design considerations are dramatically different than what I am used to with clothing and accessories. This collaboration will require finding a new way to add movement and personality to an otherwise static item."

Jason Wu launched his Ready-to-Wear Collection in the spring of 2006 and today has emerged as one of the leading global talents based in New York. He is committed to making beautifully crafted clothes and the idea of creating a collection that merges American sportswear with old world glamour. Influenced by the classic photography of Richard Avedon and the works of Charles James and Jacques Fath, his collection aims to revitalize the art and perfection of dressing with a relaxed and youthful attitude. He is committed to maintaining strict quality standards and produces over 80% of his collection in New York's Garment District, which is also the home to his design studio and showroom.
