When beauty becomes a patternBaselworld 2018: The Balmain Flamea II savours the allure of haute couture
Haute couture marries structure and embellishment to live happily ever after. This union is at the heart of the Balmain Flamea II. Classical shapes, intricate patterns and harmonious attachments join together to create watches fit to grace the best of look-books.
Swiss made reliability is the faithful friend of designs that promise to add a magical touch to the diverse style statements of the contemporary female. These timepieces are made-to-measure for engagements ranging from early-morning commutes to mellow sundowners.
Inspirations spanning from the elaborate metalwork of the Eiffel Tower, to the lace of a nostalgic evening gown, are the framework of this family. Right angles and loops speak the same language when it comes to decorating eye-catching mother-of-pearl dials with puzzle-like precision. This embroidery-like signature is echoed by fine metal bracelets and stitched leather straps with either a patent or cushioned finish.
Sixteen models make up a beautifully fashioned, feminine collection with an uncompromising eye for detail. Metal bracelets and silver-coloured dials are available in silver monochrome or bi-colour combinations introducing gold PVD. Black or burgundy patent straps open up a further spectrum of options. Swiss movements, sapphire crystals and water resistance to five bar seal the deal. These sophisticated timepieces present a patchwork of the art of accessorization.
