Colouring in Time
Colour transforms, conveys and defines a blend of personality, preferences and attitudes. Red for strength, health and vitality; yellow for happiness and imagination; beige for earthy chic; blue for serenity and caring; or simply an explosion of the rich purple, pink Radiant Orchid Pantone colour of the Year 2014…
The potential interpretations of this up-to-the-minute theme are as infinitely varied as the countless facets of fashion. As endless as the ever-spinning circle of time expressed by the Manufacture Roger Dubuis through a sizzling on-trend range of straps, dials and gems designed to suit every occasion.
From the coldest nights of winter to the hottest summer days, Roger Dubuis is right up there with this year’s best looks and colour trends, from soft and subtle to popping and powerful, from pastel shades to primary tones. Introducing the PANTONE Spring 2014 Fashion Colour Report, Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute, stated: “This season, consumers are looking for a state of thoughtful, emotional and artistic equilibrium. While this need for stability is reflected in the composition of the palette, the inherent versatility of the individual colours allows for experimentation with new looks and colour combinations.”
Emotions and artistic equilibrium are indeed cornerstones of life according to Roger Dubuis. At the forefront of the contemporary Haute Horlogerie scene since 1995, the brand’s audacious and unconventional models, rich in conceptual creativity and mechanical detail and firmly anchored in the 21st century, embody the savoir-faire and expertise of the finest mechanisms.
Colour is a natural theme for the Manufacture Roger Dubuis, which sees it as an ideal means of expressing its own vibrant, upbeat and unconventional personality – and even more importantly that of its wearers. The palette of interpretations includes shimmering satin straps and statement gemstones in the Velvet collection, as well as multi-hued glossy leather straps and even a cobalt blue dial (another hot trend in 2014!) in the Excalibur 42 collection.
So whether one wishes to convey boldness and wit, strength and brilliance, or elegance and beauty, the brand’s many shades of colour combined with glamorous design, stunning movements and exceptional charisma will ensure that every diva and her warrior are kitted out for this season… and the next.
