Following the successful launch of the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Chronograph, Girard-Perregaux recently added 5 new models into its fold as part of its Summer Edition 2018. The new models come brimming in a vibrant set of purple, yellow, turquoise, blue and pink, extending its sphere of influence to women whose style expresses an art of living.

Today, being oneself is a meticulously calculated formula – which side of your various facets of personality do you want to showcase? A bold creative individual with a slight touch of rebellion or someone who’s sweet and effortless but also powerful. Inevitably, the clothes, shoes, jewellery and handbags will always be part of the equation as to how you portray yourself. A watch, especially, is no longer just a fashion accessory but a statement that reveals the subtle nuance at first glance. On the note of individuality, the vibrant new models of Girard-Perregaux Laureato Summer edition 2018, though marketed at women, remains very much versatile as a gender-neutral timepiece fit for multiple styles. Here are the ways you can style the colourful new models for both men and women:

The Powerful and Creative

The colour purple is often associated with creativity and wisdom. Accentuate the power of the timepiece with a structured dress or a double-breasted blazer of the same hue – it is all about the edginess of the outfit. Create a colour blocking effect by accessorising with complementary colours like coral red and complete the outfit with a pair of pointy heel (or boots for men) for an extra oomph.

The Energy Giver

Yellow naturally gives off an energetic, outgoing vibe. Wear it with straight-cut jeans or pants, a top and a pop of bright yellow athletic outerwear to match the watch and Girard-Perregaux’s brand ethos of sportiness chic. The key is to dress the rest of the outfit in dark hues like black or navy blue to set the contrast.

The Calm and Sophisticated

Often seen as an accent colour, it does not require much for the turquoise colour to stand out. Simply wear it with neutral shade clothing such as black, white and grey with turquoise in the form of stripes or print to pull off a refreshing, sophisticated ensemble. If you’re feeling experimental, dress up with complementary red or orange accents to give the outfit a bolder appearance.

The Effortlessly Cool

Blue – the universal colour that looks good on everyone. Though versatile, the trick to work this cobalt variation of GP’s Summer edition Laureato into your ensemble is to either colour coordinate the exact same shade of blue or to layer different hues. For an added texture, substitute your outerwear for a denim jacket or finish your outfit with a touch of printed hand carry.

The Sexy and Charming

Pink has been a trending colour of late, among both men and women. As a more understated version of red, the colour pink represents passion and allure. Unlike traditional times, pink no longer construe to femininity. Instead, present-day men often don pink clothing for a casual chic look.
