I was invited for the media preview of Fossil Fall – Holiday 2012 Collection, at Square One Mall, Saket.
Fossil India gives watch lovers a chance to revel in the season’s best horological offerings as they unveil the stellar fall & holiday collections from their premium fashion brands. Beginning with the vintage elegance of Fossil, ease into the sophistication of Emporio Armani and the glamour of DKNY. If you are not one for the subtle & the conventional, then receive your jolt from Diesel’s larger-than-life timeframes.
The new lines of timepieces stay true to the signature designs of the respective brands, effortlessly melding creativity, function and an impeccable sense of style, destined to live on decade, after decade, after decade….
The Fossil Fall 2012 collection pays homage to their vintage core with an uncompromising devotion to authenticity. Taking inspiration from 1940s era aviation watches, the Flight collection has a clean, classic feel that’s as relevant today as it was back then. New mixed materials from rich burl wood to masculine black-on-black give the Natalie pieces a unique dressing with one-of-a-kind inlays and plating that strike the perfect contemporary balance. The ever-popular boyfriend Stella watches and the utility Nate watches make a reappearance in fresher colors & designs.
Diesel goes outrageously large for the fall/ holiday season, reintroducing its super wow-factor, drink-coaster-size of Daddy watch dial in six new styles. Also in the works are the hotly anticipated limited Batman & Mr. Cartoon watches. Inspired by the Batmobile Tumbler, The Dark Knight Rises’ Batman-inspired timeframe features a black silicone strap with tank-like treads. The Batman logo is printed on the layered chronograph dial and carved into the oversized crown. The Mr. Cartoon watches see Diesel and the irreverent and controversial tattoo artist, Mr. Cartoon collaborate to create two customized limited edition watches, drawing inspiration from the vibrant streets of Los Angeles where he grew up.
The bling collection of DKNY
DKNY brings in the holiday season 2012 in pure New York glamour. Fun meets fantasy with all-out color, sparkle and shine. A sultry mix of grey leather and luxurious gold embellishments create shine for a look that translates from day beautifully into night. A fun introduction, theDKNY Minis feature a versatile and unexpected 20mm case. Wear the mini on its own or stack with layered bracelets and cuffs when the mood strikes for more casual oomph. DKNY Men’s for Fall 2012 watches are masculine, modern, smart, innovative and timeless. The collection has a ‘fashion meets sport’ theme comprising exquisitely crafted watches completed by lustrous stainless steel or matte leather straps.
Taking inspiration from the classics, Emporio Armani creates a collection of sophisticated timepieces with a contemporary spirit. These timepieces form an exclusive collection displaying a perfect blend of modernity and tradition, designed to capture the contrasting personality of today’s generation. Catapult into technical sophistication with Emporio Armani’s Meccanico. The sporty Tazio and Renato watches offset your inner player with durable silicon & leather design in varied hues.
