It’s about time for another stylish collaboration. Roberto Cavalli has teamed up with the luxury watch company Franck Muller on a collection (and not a moment too soon). Cavalli, an old friend of Muller, was a natural choice for the Swiss company. “We share many principles; one of them is [to] live life with passion, so the idea of collaborating came very naturally,” says Muller. “Roberto Cavalli is one of the most prestigious fashion Italian brands at an international level, so for me, it was obvious that for a co-branding it should be him. The product will be designed by the Roberto Cavalli Group with our support, and the technical part will be made by us. I think that it is a good compromise.”

Cavalli shares the sentiment. “I have always been very impressed by the craftsmanship, the quality, the innovation, the style and the creativity of the Franck Muller Group,” he says. “These are characteristics that have allowed the brand to distinguish itself in the watchmaking sector. 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 and the state of mind of who wears it.”

With the technical expertise of Muller and the design skills of Cavalli, the Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller line is sure to be distinctive—once it arrives this fall. “The watches are not finished yet,” says Muller. “However, I can tell you that is a great experience to combine fashion and technical. The result should be amazing!”
