Being fashionably late is a thing of the past as watchmakers collaborate with trendsetting brands to spruce up their offerings
Elegance has always been a calling card for Vacheron Constantin, and it is further epitomised with its latest partnership with one of the world’s oldest fabric manufacturers, Vitale Barberis Canonico. Skilled craftsmen have replicated the textures of different fabric patterns like herringbone, pinstripes and tartan using enamelling and guilloche techniques on the Métiers d’art Élégance Sartoriale range of timepieces.
Aimed squarely at the refined gentleman with a penchant for sharply tailored threads, the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti (top) is a finely executed accessory that blends exquisite craftsmanship with a handsome demeanour. The Swiss watchmaker has leveraged on the leather-making skills of its LVMH stable mate by appropriating its signature patina leather on the watch’s strap as well as its dial. Available in a limited edition of 250 pieces, the Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto features the famed scritto engraving specific to the men’s luxury brand.
