The Parmigiani Fleurier Haute Horlogerie Manufacture has unveiled a collection of summery straps designed as a couture collection. The look is decidedly pop-art using the finest materials, sensual to the touch, while combining the elegance of the Tonda 1950 with the technicolor appeal of its new straps.
The palette of colors together with the suppleness and comfort of the leathers and the quality of the stitching has been chosen with consummate care.
On the one hand, chic alligator with scales which vary in size to match the Manufacture’s desired style. On the other, calfskin, smooth or stamped using a process which marks the leather, giving a color print for an on-trend effect.
One of the straps in the collection sports a pixellated pattern like a butterfly’s wing. On a black background, the strap is partially overlaid with silver, and then flecked with green and a vibrant fuchsia. The metallic hints turn the Tonda 1950 into a pop chic classic.
The summer collection also includes calfskin straps in radiant coral and lime green. For this, the Manufacture selected leathers with a very fine grain. The almost silky feel of this velvety strap against the wrist makes it a pleasure to wear every day.
Finally, the couture collection’s It-strap is made from alligator. The collection is available in khaki – this year’s colour – with large scales for a strong, masculine look, while pink or purple alligator versions offer a very different style, with fine scales and a high-gloss finish to ensure their feminine appeal and are designed to bring out the radiance of any summer tan!
