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.

“I just wanted to create this fully rounded character, but I do think what excited me most was just the opportunity to give a group of people representation that I feel needs it. I like to do characters in projects that stand for something and Karolina definitely does, so that was really exciting to me,” @ginnygardner says of her new role in @hulu’s “The Runaways.” Gardner plays Karolina Dean, a queer superhero, which is a rarity for @marvel.

“Azzedine has been one of the biggest influences in my life. He has always been such a strong, loving, fatherly figure to me. I call him Papa. His designs are indescribably unique, they are pieces of art. He knew how to make the female form look its loveliest. I have so many memories of him; my favorite might be during my first show with him in Paris. He liked me and he wanted to help me get more work. He called all his friends at Kenzo and Comme des Garcons, and asked them to book me. They said, ‘But she can’t walk!’ And he said, ‘but she has such a great ass!' His friendship and support has been the great privilege of my career. I can't imagine life without him. Repose en paix mon Papa.” - @stephanieseymour tells @wwd. #wwdfashion (📷: @steveeichner) #alaia #azzedinealaia
Azzedine Alaïa, flanked by two of his closest friends, models Stephanie Seymour and Naomi Campbell.
He designed Seymour’s dress for her 1995 wedding to Peter Brant, and treated Campbell (who famously called him Papa), like a daughter. For more on the legendary designer, tap the link in bio. #wwdfashion #alaia #azzedinealaia
