What could be more natural than fashion meets watchmaking? This season, watches offer new aestheticsrevisited by fashion houses, designers, and ateliers.
Chopard has signed a collaboration with masters of Italian tailoring Kiton Ateliers. The extra-flat L.U.C XP II Sarto Kiton timepiece released in a limited edition of 100 pieces features a houndstooth pattern dial and leather-lined slate cashmere watch strap
Besides the new circular Hermès dial and range of single-turn watch straps that make the Apple Watch Hermès Series 6 more sophisticated, a new design christened Hermès Attelage pays tribute to the fashion house’s equestrian universe with ultra-thin double-turn or single-turn watch straps in Barenia fawn calf leather.
The Swiss manufacturer has signed a partnership with the English fashion house Ralph & Russo. Four new Royal Oaks — 34mm in diameter for the slenderest of wrists — are the perfect accompaniment to ready-to-wear, while two new Royal Oaks Concept Tourbillon Volant combine femininity with micromechanics.
Nonconformists, please note without flinching! The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto, powered by the Unico movement and released in a limited edition of 200 pieces, is cut from matt black ceramic with the camouflage motif so dear to the Japanese designer.
