I usually pride myself on being ahead of the game in fashion and having a pretty good idea of which celebrities will collaborate next, but this one caught me off guard. Pete Doherty has had quite a low profile in the press lately and definitely lost his appeal in the fashion world after his relationship with Kate Moss broke down. However, last week he made the unusual move of launching a jewellery line with London based jeweller Hannah Martin.
The line is called Albion Trinketry and it was unveiled at Joseph in West London. Doherty commented, "I’m like a magpie really in a lot of ways. I’ve always collected [jewellery], unsuccessfully most of it — you treasure it and it gets lost." The pieces are being sold at quite a high price point. A set of silver cuff links will set you back £425 and a solid rose gold ring will cost you £8,725! Even Doherty said, "I can’t afford to buy them myself. They cost a fortune."
