MILAN — The Roberto Cavalli Group said Monday it has inked a co-branding agreement with the Swiss haute horlogerie Franck Muller Group for the production and distribution of a Roberto Cavalli by Franck Muller watch collection. The timepieces are scheduled to bow globally in the fall and will be available in the designer’s boutiques, Franck Muller stores and selected luxury watch retailers.
“I have always been very impressed by the craftsmanship, the quality, the innovation, the style and the creativity of the Franck Muller Group. These are characteristics that have allowed the brand to distinguish itself in the watchmaking sector,” stated Cavalli, chairman of the family-owned company. “Our two worlds have a lot in common, and as a great watch collector I find that just like an evening gown, a watch tells and defines exactly the character and the state of mind of [the person] who wears it.”
