Baselworld Trade Fair Report No. 2: Fashion Watches
Women’s watches became more important at this year’s Baselworld, tapping into colour trends emanating from the world of women’s fashions. Besides a veritable explosion of bright colours there was also the concept that all-over white has peaked in favour of soft neutrals and pastels. In addition, watches maximized flora and fauna motifs that are also prominent in other areas, from ready-to-wear to other accessories.
The ever-classic and modern Swiss railroad watch got a feminine makeover with a range of softly coloured lizard watchbands.
Colours intensified with stronger shades of orange, yellow and blue, not only with croco bands but also with matching watch faces.
A braided rope watchband created a sportive casual look.
The next edition of Baselworld will take place from March 23-30, 2017 in Basel, Switzerland.
