Following the success of earlier editions, Hublot and Lapo Elkann continue their collaboration with a new collection of three chronograph watches

"The more time passes, the more I feel inspired by the partnership with Hublot. The synergies between us are obvious, allowing us to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity with each new collection. These three new pieces are no exception: As soon as you hold them, you can feel the elegance and technical perfection they exude, whilst retaining a quirky touch of je-ne-sais-quoi. They have a powerful charm!" explains Lapo Elkann

Lapo Elkann has been elected to Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed Hall of Fame. His sense of style and elegance is elevated by his unbridled creativity. These qualities were first seen when he was at the Head of Brand Promotion for FCA as well as with the creating of his own businesses, Italia Independent Group and Garage Italia. Italia Independent, the ready-to-wear and luxury accessories brand, that has linked its name to Hublot and create a partnership.

"This new collaboration between Hublot and Lapo Elkann and his Italia Independent brand is a marvellous example of our concept "The Art of Fusion". It fuses two creative spirits, both intent on leaving the beaten track behind, and on furthering their quest to use new materials. We have worked together since 2014 and neither of us could imagine a more perfect partnership.” says Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO

Four collections, one for women have been created from this partnership that combines the innovative approach of Lapo Elkann and the watchmaking and technological expertise of the Hublot Manufacture. For 2018, the stylish Hublot Classic Fusion Italia Independent has been given a sporty twist with the addition of a chronograph movement to three different limited editions. In all three, cutting edge materials resulting from extensive research conducted by Hublot combine with the elegance of the exquisite fabrics Lapo Elkann has chosen from the archives of the legendary Italian tailor, Rubinacci. For this collaboration, he has selected precious rolls of fabric inspired by the 60s and 70s.

The first model sports a blue houndstooth pattern on the strap and dial. The colour is accentuated by a polished titanium case. This piece will be limited to 100. The second, also blue, is enhanced by the elegance of a fabric featuring a fine pinstripe. The black case is formed of polished ceramic and, again, only 100 pieces will be produced. More exclusive still, the third watch in this collection will be available in a limited edition of just 50 pieces. It features the famous King Gold, a noble material that perfectly illustrates "The Art of Fusion" that is so dear to Hublot. The strap and dial feature the brown tones of a Prince of Wales check.

All three timepieces feature the same sapphire crystal on back of their 45 mm case, allowing an unimpeded view of their HUB1143 calibre mechanism, a self-winding chronograph movement with a 42-hour power reserve.

Each Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Italia Independent timepiece will be delivered in a presentation case that also contains an exclusive pair of Italia Independent sunglasses specially designed to match. Classic Italian style!
