Gucci launches capsule collection with Ignasi Monreal

Gucci is once again supporting art, this time collaborating with Ignasi Monreal.

The Italian luxury house has teamed up with the Spanish artist for a new limited edition capsule collection featuring artwork created by Monreal for the brand’s Spring-Summer 2018 campaign.

Named “GucciHallucination”, as the campaign of this season, the series consists of nine different T-shirts each sold only 200 copies, and nine sweatshirts, each sold for 100 copies. Each exhibiting a digital work by Monreal for the spring-summer 2018 campaign. All the pieces will be accompanied by a numbered label, as well as a personalized packaging with Monreal illustrations. In addition to the launch of the capsule, Gucci and Monreal worked together to produce an art wall in East London, the first of its kind in the UK after previous installations in New York and Milan.

Monreal has been collaborating with Gucci and its creative director Alessandro Michele for some time now: their first collaboration dates back to the #GucciGram initiative of the luxury house on Instagram in 2015. The digital painter also worked on the “Gift Giving” campaign 2017 of Gucci, and he imagined the artistic and surreal images used in the brand’s spring-summer 2018 commercials.

Corum exhibition at the Baselworld 2018 watchmaking fair

Since 1955, Corum has considered creativity and daring as his cardinal values. The brand continues the path laid down by its founders, remaining more than ever loyal to iconic collections while enriching them with a modern and powerful touch, full of innovation and technical progress.

The Admiral is one of the pillars of the heritage of the house. Unveiled in 1960, just five years after the creation of the house, she embodies maritime watchmaking according to Corum.
The Admiral 45 Skeleton is a more radical piece that gives equal play to nautical design and pure watchmaking mechanics.

This one is now in the open. The particular nature of the movement deserves this undressing: it is designed in-house, designed by Corum and produced by EMC, its own production entity. It is the caliber CO 082, offering 42 hours of power reserve. Fully unveiled, it offers the Admiral a more energetic look. The Admiral 45 Skeleton is not satisfied with a lack of dial. Its bridges have all been perforated and covered with an anthracite gray surface that offers two contrasts. The first is made with the gears in nickel silver movement whose copper color is radiantly detached from the other components.

At the show, Corum has unveiled the new Bubble Central Tourbillon. The piece has three attributes that make it a unique tourbillon in watchmaking. First, the generous dimensions of the room: with its 47 mm, the Bubble offers a vast field of expression that allows the tourbillon to express itself in all its generosity. Then, the central position of this whirlpool. It is a complex technical choice since it forces an online construction of the template. However, the complication offers an un-angled anchor and allows this tourbillon in the central position to immediately catch the eye. On many occasions, Corum played with its magnifying effect (in the center) and slightly deforming (at the edge) to create different visual effects. This is still the case today: the top of the curved glass acts as a magnifying glass on the whirlpool just below, allowing a natural way to grasp the smallest details.
