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.
