Spinning tales: The Hublot Classic Fusion line uses vintage fabrics

Hublot Classic Fusion

Hublot’s collaboration with design maven Italia Independent continues with the Hublot Classic Fusion line, and this time the watches have been kitted out in vintage fabrics a la Sartoria Rubinacci.

More than 60,000sqm of houndstooth, tweeds and other classical weaves fill Rubinacci’s Milan, London and Naples stores. Amid the plethora, Hublot and Italia Independent chanced upon a collection of tartans from the 1970s that would stir the senses of any hot-blooded sartorialist.

Six fabrics were chosen by third-generation master tailor, Luca Rubinacci, based on the suits typically favoured by Italia Independent co-founder, Lapo Elkann, himself a veritable style icon par excellence.

The textiles grace the dials and straps of the watches, which Luca professes, looks “better than I could have hoped for”.
