Jason Wu Designs for Brizo


Renowned fashion designer and fashion faucet brand collaborate on bathroom collection

TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2011 /CNW/ - 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 Spring 2012. The collection features a distinctive matte black finish that gives an air of confidence and elegance.

"Brizo and Jason Wu are both luxury brands that share the same design vision: timeless style that is innovative and fresh," said Anita Griffin, Canadian brand manager for Brizo "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. With both Jason Wu and Brizo, discriminating consumers get high-fashion brands that reflect their personal tastes and status in life. 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."
