TIME FOR VELVET
Velvet – once in the realm of fashions long forgotten – is set to be huge in autumn 2017. So why not rock it on your wrist? Hublot, ever the rulebreaker, has created the oxymoronic sports- cocktail watch in its se cond collaboration with Italia Independent, Fiat heir Lapo Elkann’s design agency. The Big Bang’s chunky, black ceramic case takes care of the sports side, while 52 diamonds, a velvet dial and interchangeable velvet straps add evening credentials. £16,500, hublot.com.
