If you have a passion for fashion, then you know that the devil is in the details when it comes to good outfit planning. After all, choosing the perfect accessories to match your personal style is key to a well-rounded wardrobe. The new Longines DolceVita X YVY collaboration timepiece could prove to be the perfect piece of arm candy. The rectangular case suits a wide variety of styles, with each watch featuring a unique face and strap colour to fit your style personality.
Created in collaboration with Yvonne Reichmuth, founder of Swiss design studio YVY, the designer is known for combining her avant-garde designs with traditional craftsmanship. It’s no surprise that she’s a hot favourite amongst stylish celebrities such as Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Kylie Jenner, Gwen Stefani, Janet Jackson and more.
The most ingenious thing about Reichmuth’s creation for the Longines DolceVita is its innovative double strap. As opposed to a single strap that wraps twice around your wrist, the new DolceVita instead features two separate straps that are connected by discreet leather loops. This allows you to remove the second strap and change up the look of your watch to match your outfit of the day. The straps are also intended to evoke Longines’ long-standing association with the equestrian world — the connection between the two straps symbolizes the close connection between a horse and their rider.
The DolceVita X YVY is available in three different iterations, each with a smooth strap made from top-quality leather. The brown strap is paired with a face bearing roman numerals, the beige strap is paired with sleek silver hour markers, and the black riveted strap is paired with a simple all-black dial with no numerals at all. All three versions are available in two different sizes, so you could potentially share your watch with a partner if you’re so inclined.
Regardless of your fashion tastes, each of the watches would suit a different style profile — click through the gallery below to discover which might fit you best.
