David Webb, a Southern-bred jewelry designer who managed to infiltrate elite enclaves in the Sixties and Seventies, is the subject of a retrospective at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, Fla., through April 13.
Located across the water from the winter stomping ground of several of his patrons, the venue, as well as the exhibit’s subtitle “Society’s Jeweler,” befits Webb’s social access, which resulted in a remarkably prolific career cut short by his death in 1975 at age 50. But more than high society, Webb’s work acted as a barometer for a grander social context, according to exhibition curator Donald Albrecht.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
