There’s some buzz in the horology world… Gucci has just asked Florence Welch, the 30-year-old English lead singer of “Florence and the Machine” to sponsor their watches. Some eyebrows have been raised over the unorthodox choice…what propelled the luxury brand to feature Florence as the face of their company?
According to Alessandro Michele, creative director at Gucci, her music “in many ways evokes the spirit of Gucci”. Florence is now the official Muse of the Italian company, and with that power comes one great responsibility: to wear their brand as often as possible, and look amazing doing it.
Here are some other famous watch brand – celebrity collaborations that have become as iconic as the watch designs themselves:
Kate Winslet for Longines
David Beckham for Breitling
Amanda Seyfried for Movado
Gwyneth Paltrow for Frederique Constant
Don Johnson for Ebel
Elle Fanning for Tiffany and Co.
Lebron James for Audemars Piguet
Charlize Theron for Christian Dior
Sir Richard Branson for Bulova
Katy Perry for Ice-Watch
The Beatles for Raymond Weil
That last one surprise you? Despite the fact that no Beatle was ever (or will ever be) seen wearing a Raymond Weil, the brand has announced a Maestro inspired by the hit band that rocked your parent’s prom night. This exclusive watch features the Beatles logo at 3 o’clock and the band’s thirteen album titles engraved around the bespoke dial. Every Maestro Beatles timepiece issued will also feature an engraved limited edition number.
