Press Release
The Boa Bang or the call of the jungle…After the phenomenal success of the Leopard Bang, which really left its mark on the catwalk last winter, Hublot is now giving pride of place to the snakeskin print. The unmissable trend for 2012, it’s the one to watch this season. Snakeskin fashion is everywhere. It is sexy, glamourous, stylish, and ultra-feminine. Shoes, dresses, trousers, tops, lingerie, bags, sunglasses, … it is in every aspect of the fashionista’s wardrobe, used as a highlight rather than a complete look. Hints of the jungle are the latest in on-trend elegance, using the snakeskin print in subtle little touches as on the Boa Bang 41 mm, available in steel or 18K red gold, and in brown or green tones, equipped with a mechanical chronograph movement to impress connoisseurs and with a dial enhanced with 8 bezel-set diamonds, firmly ensuring it will be one of this season’s must-haves.
