Roberto Cavalli to unveil new line of watches

First published: 17-01-2012

Roberto Cavalli has announced it is to create a new line of designer watches to be sold by the brand, which are to be created in collaboration with the Franck Muller Group.

The fashion house has developed the watches with the Swiss company and will be unveiling them during the third quarter of the year.

Cavalli, who still works as the head of the company, explained that he was impressed with the way in which the watch manufacturer develops its products.

"Our two worlds have a lot in common, and as a great watch collector I find that just like an evening gown, a watch tells and defines exactly the character," Cavalli added.

The watches will cover a wide price range, with more affordable items joined by timepieces created specifically for the luxury sector.

Moving into the watch market could be the plan for many fashion houses as recent figures for luxury goods owner Richemont has noted sales of valuable timepieces are still increasing.
