Get to know the black and gold beauties of Versus Versace FW17
Ticking the right boxes
Crystal Covent Garden
A spin off on the ever-popular Versus Covent Garden, the crystallised version takes show-stopping to a whole new level. A hyper-decorated case is resplendent with a guilloché dial set with two rows of Swarovski crystals and framed by a faceted ring cast in crystal-clear resin. At 6 o'clock, the golden Lion's head echo the yellow gold pyramid-shaped studs that run along the entire length of the two-tone bracelet.
Classic in silhouette but vivacious in character, this timepiece is noted for the emblematic "V" links of the elegant satin-finished strap. The dial does not cower in the shadow either. A fine train of Swarovski crystals embellish the top ring while dainty cabochons denote the indices against a flinqué background. Again, the Lion's head rests at 6 o'clock.
Fire Island Glitter
A firm favourite amongst those who prefer casual wrist company, the Fire Island returns with glittery aplomb. The signature silicone straps debut for the first time this season with sparkly particles embedded to reflect the effervescent spirit this watch represents. Besides the sunray indices and railway-track minute circle, other details are kept discreet. The Lion's head and studs adorn the straps in three dimensional forms while text in relief add interest to the dial.
Presenting the new extra large chronograph from Versus Versace. A 50mm diameter case is accentuated by a carbon fibre-effect texture on the top ring and dial. To amp up the masculinity, small plates showcasing the logo, alongside hex key indices are displayed amid hints of red on the bezel and second hand. Even the bracelet bears a wealth of details; subtle graphic stylings give it dimension and a jolt of sportiness.
