Hublot presents its Classic Fusion Italia Independent Collection.
From the partnership between Hublot, Italia Independent and Lapo Elkann comes another special -edition run of timepieces based on the Classic Fusion chronograph, now melded with fabric from the House of Rubinacci, the most renowned bespoke tailor in Naples.
This special-edition run features six variants, each with dials and straps adorned with houndstooth, tartan, and Prince of Wales patterns. Selection of the cloth was done by Luca Rubinacci, a third-generation tailor and master of the house’s Milan outpost.
So why Rubinacci? The House of Rubinacci holds the most beautiful collection of fabrics in its archives. It was here, in the more than 60,000 square metres of precious houndstooth, tweeds and other cloths that Hublot and Lapo Elkann found a collection of tartans-squared coloured wool weaves from the seventies-that they brought back to life by including them in the Classic Fusion as a chronograph.
“As a creator, I have always put customisation and bespoke designs, which for me represent real luxury, at the heart of my different projects. It is with this in mind that I conceive and design unique objects, which meet my tastes and requirements, but also satisfy my clients. I like the fact that they become truly mine and that they are distinctive, and this is the case for the Classic Fusion Italia Independent collection,” says Lapo Elkann, Founder and Artistic Director of Italia Independent.
So if you’re looking to update your watch collection with something that just oozes style, you know where to look and what to get.
