KOMONO SS16 WATCHES
LOST IN TRADITION, FOUND IN TRANSLATION
“Linear collides with curves and chaos gives way to calm here. The canyons of glass, steel and concrete hide coves of quiet and calm. There is so much complexity to this place and yet it’s so simple. It’s so capable. Every square foot is designed for ef ciency and effectiveness. How can a place exist as a testament to tradition and progression simultaneously? And yet… Tokyo does. It is ve hundred years of the past projected onto the city of the future.
This season, we’re set to Tokyo time. The perpetual buzz and flurry of progression, tradition, simplicity and complexity. The architecture, style and culture that have come as a result. This speaks to us. This is our language. This harmonious enigma.” KOMONO
Estelle Cutout: The Estelle Cutout is an exploration of positive and negative space. The voids in this laser-cut band lend a perfect contrast of lightness and sophistication to Estelle’s traditional re nement. A deep Cognac hue now reinforces the Estelle Cutout’s rich color palette.
Winston Heritage Denim: Washed, rinsed, and endless shades of Blue and Gray. Few materials are as ubiquitous as denim. Fewer materials can complement our Winston as well as denim can. The Winston Heritage employs an acid wash and leather detailing to punctuate the timeless aesthetic of our classic piece.
Winston Regal: The most eminent Winston design yet, born into a higher class of design with two distinct bloodlines to choose from: the modern, colorfully expressive branch of the regal family or the classic versions that stay true to their more traditional roots.
The Estelle: Meet Estelle. She adds a touch of discrete colorful class to our accessory gene pool. Her design is a gentle nod to the world of It-bags characterized by a keen love for leather details and color schemes that not only need to match your entire out t, but also your entire personality.
The Moneypenny: The Moneypenny, or in other words, how to make time timeless. Elegance and class were never this accessible. Soft and hard edges interact seamlessly and the precise pro le elevates the Moneypenny from accessory to jewelry status. For an additional layer of elegance, we’ve added a Mother of Pearl dial option to the Moneypenny Royale this season.
The Wizard: The most popular member of the ever-expanding Komono family, probably because it can make friends with any number of personalities and still maintain its own identity. Pick your pattern from a range of classic & contemporary Komono fabrics and match your wristwear to your mood, your shirt, your trousers, your footwear or your latest fancy. There are ve all-star additions to the Wizard Print clan: the swishy Polkadot Sands, the flamboyant Tropicalia, the jittery energy of Nightflakes, the deeply satisfying aesthetics of Batik Blues and the breezy chic of Black Palms.
