Delfina Delettrez Stops Time
Label: Delfina Delettrez
Need to Know: Delfina Delettrez is spinning a lot of plates these days—literally and figuratively. No stranger to runways (she collaborated with Kenzo a few seasons back), the designer got a head start for Spring, debuting jewelry on the Fendi catwalk in Milan (yes, we have her to thank for those furry little earpieces). And there are more collaborations to come; keep your eyes on couture.
With Spring’s Never Too Light roundup, which Delettrez presented on spinning porcelain platters in Paris, she moved the needle a bit. She added more high jewelry, and offered a surreal take on Timeless watches, whose function is purely aesthetic. In place of faces, the wares boast big, colorful quartzes, and their diamond-set bracelets look more like snakeskin than pavé. She also revisited her classics, with pearls (micro, chocolate, gold, and white) and semiprecious stones such as peridot and topaz in phantom settings for rings and single earrings. Another standout: diamond rings sold singly or as a set.
She Says: “I love bending the rules of time. With these watches, it means you’re never late!”
