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.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
