Hublot and Marc Ferrero Embrace The Power of Women in Through Watches
Hublot and artist, Marc Ferrero, best known for his unique style of storytelling art, unveil their timepiece collection, entitled Bang Bang One Click Marc Ferrero. The inspiration for the collection is the 21st century woman.
The woman represented in this collaborative collection between Hublot and Marc Ferrero could be a wife, mother, friend, lover, business woman, femme fatale, fashion icon or night owl, for every hour of the day the modern woman sets herself apart as unpredictable, multifaceted and unique. She is disarming and makes light of the simple or complex adventures that she comes up against; drawing upon her charm, she juggles the lives that fill each of her days.
The 21st century woman is to be represented all over the timepiece; the dial tells the story of this heroine of modern times with ‘Lipstick’, an iconic work by Ferraro. Enigmatic behind her dark glasses, she remains majestic in the face of the unexpected and affirms her femininity, armed with her lipstick. Spinels in shades of red, topazes for the turquoise version, and forty-two fine stones decorate the bezel of the new 39-mm case, which is adjusted to her feminine wrists. With one touch of its “One Click” patented fastening system, the leather strap makes way for a version in alligator and rubber, a touch of sophistication appropriate for the moment. Available in red and turquoise, the special series will be available in 50 copies of each tone.
“When I am asked ‘What innovative and modern idea develops your painting?’ Without hesitation, I answer fusion,” says Marc Ferrero. “Using different graphic styles (cubism, impressionism, surrealism, figurative, etc.) on the same plane or over my works—just like a film director uses special effects to tell a story—will always represent an extremely exciting challenge for me.”
Hublot and Marc Ferrero cultivate the art of exploration in their respective fields, with fusion as the guiding principle. For the watchmaking house, it is the unexpected blend of rare and innovative materials and for the artist and friend of the brand, it is the combination of different graphic styles on the same plane. It was therefore natural for their innovative spirits to find a shared expression, with watchmaking as a vehicle for art. A story of timeless adventures is embodied by the Big Bang One Click Marc Ferrero timepiece. A flagship announcement linking to the “Hublot loves Art” series.
The watch can be viewed at the Baselworld trade fair. For more information about the collection and other Hublot timepieces, visit www.hublot.com.
