Mandate, ECAL 2017
in MASTER OF ADVANCED STUDIES DESIGN FOR LUXURY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
For the first collaboration with Chopard, students of the Master of Advanced Studies in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship of ECAL have designed a collection of leather handbags and pouches under the direction of Swiss designer Xavier Perrenoud.
Students were asked to create projects directly inspired by three iconic collections: Ice Cube, Happy Diamonds and Imperiale. The visit of the manufacture and the presentation of the different ranges of accessories allowed the students to understand the stakes and the codes of this prestigious House based in Switzerland. Seven students were selected and took advantage of a stay in Florence to meet the different artisans who created the prototypes.
Five projects, some of which are expected to incorporate the brand's accessories collection, will be presented at the BaselWorld, the World Watch and Jewellery Show, from 23 to 30 March 2017.
Daily from 9am – 6pm
(except Thursday 30 March: 9am – 4pm)
