MILAN — Didier Dubot Joaillerie will present its signature collection and a capsule line in collaboration with Nicola Formichetti at New York’s The Standard today.
The Didier Dubot line of fine jewelry was launched in March 2013 with actress Lea Seydoux fronting its advertising campaign.
The collection draws inspiration from the poppy flower and Parisian women. Bracelets and rings are shaped like sculpted corsets in pink gold and silver, and the brand’s initials embellish the necklaces. Prices for the signature line range from $400 to $700 depending on the diamonds, but there are also more expensive items, such as a diamond-encrusted bracelet that retails at $3,500.
“The Nicola Formichetti x Didier Dubot capsule collection is inspired by cultural contrasts between punk and prettiness, Western and Eastern iconography, and the 2013 Year of the Snake in the Chinese calendar,” said the company. Gold snakes are entwined around poppies, and Formichetti’s Nico Panda avatar charm is juxtaposed with interlocking silver safety pins, bejeweled poppies, a lock and key, and pearl teardrops, adding a whimsical, punk tone to the line.
Prices for the capsule collection range from $1,800 for just silver and gold pieces, going up to $2,200 for pieces with pearls or diamonds.
The capsule line is available at L.H.P. in Tokyo and, in New York at Michele Varian and Otte, together with the signature collection.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
