The Big Bang Unico Italia Independent breaks free in a camouflage version for the urban peace-lover
Italia Independent and Hublot release their second creation. When two hubs of innovation fuse materials and style, the end result is a truly rebellious timepiece. An on-trend piece created for stylish heroes of pacifism. The camouflage pattern, fused with the structure of the Texalium®, is given a more stylised reinterpretation.
Creative entrepreneur and style icon, Italia Independent Co-Founder and Chairman Lapo Elkann sets free his talent combining genres, exhibiting the greatest taste while always being at the cutting edge of fashion. Once again, and as a result of the synergy between Hublot and Italia Independent, the two brands have ramped up their search for offbeat materials and avant-garde style. The result is a bold, outstanding timepiece.
Fusing carbon fibre and Texalium®, the Big Bang Unico Italia Independent retains the strength and lightness of carbon whilst offering the infinite spectrum of colours and eye-catching metallic effects of Texalium®. The best of both worlds. With this second creation, Hublot is building on its technical mastery of Texalium®1 and the colour possibilities it offers. Achieving uniformity of colour and the optimum combination of materials in this brand new material, exclusive to the Brand, was a real challenge.
Again this season, Italia Independent is introducing a Limited Edition sunglass collection that is inspired by the watches themselves. The glasses of this collection are lightweight and resistant, underlining the know-how of the two companies. The glasses have a classic timeless shape that uses precious metals and are embellished with a detail in Texalium®, the same material used in the watch collection. The logos of Italia Independent and Hublot can be found at the ends of the temples; the logo Hublot is also present on one of lenses that have high-quality protection and excellent filtering properties.
Even in camouflage mode, the Big Bang Unico Italia Independent cannot help but stand out. A straight-up classic, this always on-trend print has been given new scope for expression. The most famous of all military motifs is printed on a veil of silk laid over the Texalium®. Through the transparency, the pattern and texture of Texalium® can be glimpsed.
Paradox or myth, Hublot and Italia Independent have created a chic camo watch, where technology imitates nature to form the “woodland” pattern. A style which is at home anywhere, yet always stands out.
The Big Bang Unico Italia Independent is available in an artistic range of shades. The blue, green or black versions are released as a limited edition of 500, 250 and 250 pieces respectively. Carrying a peaceful message, it displays the symbol of peace at 9 o’clock.
