New Collection Marks Minimalist Revolution in Timepieces
The core style philosophy of ‘less is more’ – the very essence of Danish design – is making a timely impression worldwide, from fashion catwalks to interiors to everyday lifestyles. Skagen Denmark continues to drive the minimalistic movement forward this season with Black Label – Fall/Winter 2010 Men’s and Women’s Watch collections. Featuring simple elements fused with high-quality craftsmanship and a modern sensibility, the collection offers affordable luxuries to suit a range of personal styles.
The Skagen Denmark Black Label Collection is inspired by a variety of naturally exquisite materials and the native Scandinavian surroundings of Charlotte and Henrik Jorst, husband-and-wife team and co-founders of the brand. While the designs of these timepieces draw inspiration from abstract arts and shapes, refined sensibility, maximum functionality and craftsmanship usually synonymous with only the highest-end luxury goods are maintained, resulting in a collection exhibiting core distinctions that stand the test of time.
A trio of uniquely different and stately – yet very wearable – watch designs comprises the Black Label Collection:
• Executive – Inspired by professional drive in the workplace, each timepiece portrays prestige with minimalistic and unique qualities – ideal for creating a polished, tailored approach to dressing. Luxurious genuine Italian leather bands are versatile enough for any modern workplace. Polished stainless steel cases with mirror borders and distinct dial indexes crafted with two-hand, dual-time zones and dates within Swiss Made movements are among the key elements.
• Architect – Skagen Denmark combines the essence of today’s contemporary building structures with an expansive attention to detail in these timepieces. Rugged and industrial-design materials such as mesh and links ensure both durability and functionality. Brushed stainless steel cases, chrome mirrors borders and chronograph Swiss Made movements are just a few of the dignified elements that will stand the test of time.
• Cocktail – Each timepiece is the perfect harmony of design and composition, beauty and construction, providing the ultimate statement of elegance and sublime character. Styles feature metallic minimalism, redefining the approach of timeless glamour. Genuine diamonds and semi-precious stones combine with polished links and satin bands to create works of art that can be worn not only for special occasions, but also every day.
The Skagen Denmark Black Label Collection is now available at the Skagen Denmark Flagship Store at iSQUARE, Skagen Denmark Counters at Pacific Place Seibu, Langham Place Seibu and LCX, or online at apac.skagen.com.
