Singapore Tatler Jewels & Time




Roger Dubuis tookt a calculated risk this year and focused its attentiona­tte on the fairer gender with an updated line-lineup of its Velvet collection. This year’s premise was evident from the marketing collateral­s and the booth itself, which was set up like a salon, with mannequins wearing elaborate gowns lining the entrance.

There is a strong element of fashion underlying the collection, with pieces that are aesthetica­lly intense, such as the Velvet by Massaro, that was designed in collaborat­ion with famed shoe designer Massaro. The Black Velvet is inherently more mysterious; with a body of dark carbon fibre set with neon-blue Paraiba tourmaline­s. Regardless of its ever-changing personas, the Velvet conceals an intelligen­t heart within, and is equipped with the Geneva Seal-certified RD821 automatic movement. We had a chat with product design director Lionel Favre to find out more about this collection.
