BAR FLIES: Stephen Webster corralled a trio of his famous friends to show off his men’s jewelry collection in London. Gary and Martin Kemp, former members of Spandau Ballet, and the dandyish hairdresser Nicky Clarke all strutted along the zinc bar in the basement of the Hix restaurant wearing Webster’s silver crucifixes, chunky silver bracelets, and bold gemstone rings. On the soundtrack? The strains of Spandau Ballet’s Eighties hit, “Gold.”

The trio wore designs from Webster’s past men’s collections and from his latest offerings, inspired by the designer’s road trips across the U.S. It includes pieces such as rose gold and black sapphire cufflinks in the shape of the Route 66 sign or a heavy silver ring engraved with a tire tread. “It’s the perfect kind of thing that clicks with guys,” Webster said. “They don’t want to hear that I’m inspired by the Renaissance or those flowers over there.”

The designer also unveiled two men’s bag designs, which he’d created with Bill Amberg. The black leather designs sported silver hardware and were set with crystal and black diamond details at the handles.
