Luxury men’s fashion house Berluti and watchmaker Hublot, have partnered to create the “Big Bang Unico” chronograph.
Initiated four years ago, the collaboration between Berluti and Hublot, both owned by LVHM, has given life to a series of original watches. Bringing together the former’s legendary Venezia leather and its patina with the latter’s art of fusion of materials, these different models have all had the Hublot Classic Fusion watch as their base. For the new timepiece, the two houses worked with Kris Van Assche, Berluti’s Creative, to design a model based for the first time on the iconic Big Bang Unico chronograph. "The Big Bang chronograph’s strong, unmistakeable and modern identity reflects Berluti’s new universe and lifestyle. The patina is our trademark, usually present in our shoes and leather goods, but all that know-how can also be used for something totally different”, said Van Assche. “Bringing the Cold Brown patina, which was inspired by an archive patina and renewed through a glaçage process to obtain a rich, cutting edge colour, to the Big Bang Unico is an opportunity for Berluti’s craft to be discovered in a new context. Using our tradition and heritage in innovative, forward thinking ways has opened up a world of possibilities”, he added.
Under the auspices of Kris Van Assche, Berluti has also launched a series of luxury home leather goods, in which leather has been used in a series of brass desktop accessories, such as a letter opener, wastebasket, picture frames, bowls, and sculptural vases.
