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.
