Herrera Curates ‘Power of Style: Verdura at 75’

Those maltese cuffs he designed for Coco Chanel in the 1930s were just one defining moment.  Duke Fulco di Verdura added sparkle to the wrists, necks and novelty of so many in the glittering social circle.

And now the world can appreciate his masterpieces, pulled together in one prominent exhibit, with one powerful curator.

A longtime admirer of the artist, Carolina Herrera was instrumental in selecting the styles for a retrospective of the late legendary jeweler’s life work, which opened earlier this week at Verdura’s headquarters — The Power of Style: Verdura at 75.

Some 150 baubles are on display — including those famous maltese cross cuffs — and The Laurel Tiara, commissioned for John Hay Whitney’s wife, Betsy, on his appointment as UK Ambassador.
