This past Fashion month I was given the opportunity to attend an exciting event in Milan to celebrate the last day of their Fashion Week in association with Vogue China who are celebrating their 10th birthday this year. It was also to let the fashion world know about a brand new smart watch on the market created by Huawei, the Chinese technology giant. They have joined forces with Fornasetti to create a limited edition strap design and the images for this brand new campaign were shot by world renowned photographer Mario Testino and starred supermodels Karlie Kloss and Sean O’Pry. The watches are on sale from October in the UK, Japan and the UAE. Below is the official statement informing the consumer about the Huawei watch.
The Huawei Watch enables users to stay connected wherever they are with notifications of calls, texts, instant messages and emails. Crafted using sophisticated materials, the watch features a fully circular 1.4-inch touch-sensitive AMOLED display, coated in scratch-proof sapphire crystal (the favoured choice amongst Swiss watch manufacturers) and a cold-forged stainless steel frame. A premium watch, its design truly embodies the space where fashion meets technology. Thanks to the latest version of Google’s Android Wear™, both Android and iOS users will be able to connect to the Huawei Watch.
Check out some photos below of the event and official campaign images shot by Mario Testino. Thank you Huawei for inviting me to this amazing event and showcasing your great new smart watch with it’s Fornasetti strap design. Look out for an blog post soon with details on what I wore to the event.
