Tony Duquette For Coach Is Here! Accessorize Like A (Very Cool) Duchess Now
January 19, 2012
The estate of Tony Duquette (the late, great costume jewelry designer of the 1940s and ’50s) has launched a line of jewelry and accessories with Coach, and we like what we see.
Though the designer passed away in 1999, his legacy lives on in this 20-piece collection that just hit Coach.com. The collaboration is full of Duquette’s signature statement pieces and exotic motifs (sunbursts, animals, and insects), including some pretty major cocktail rings and a seriously spiky necklace. The real scene-stealer, however, is the New Duchess Bib Necklace ($498), an explosion of purple and green stones inspired by the (in)famous Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor (so hot right now).
The collection, which retails between $48 and $498, is up for purchase now on Coach‘s web site and will be available in stores starting Feb. 1.
