NUT JOB: Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have tapped Delfina Delettrez to create a capsule jewelry collection for their runway show for Kenzo, marking her first collaboration with a ready-to-wear brand. The line includes necklaces, bracelets, rings, belts and shoe clips, and features real walnuts preserved in resin and encased in walnut shells made of metal. Delettrez has also created thin bangles edged in colored enamel that echo the colors and prints of the collection, which will be shown on Sunday. The pieces will retail for 200 euros to 600 euros, or $270 to $800, at Kenzo boutiques, and distribution may be expanded to select specialty stores.
