Costume designer Hamilton Janie Bryant, whose credits include Mad Men, Deadwood and Why Women Kill, has teamed up with watch brand Hamilton to reimagine its signature timepieces.
“In film, we use fashion to establish a narrative’s setting and a character’s personality, all before the dialogue even begins,” Bryant said in a statement. “This capsule brings that dynamic expression off-screen with timepieces that reimagine the relationship between past, present and future.”
Inspired by Hollywood glamor, the Intra-Matic Automatic Chronograph, Ardmore Quartz and Lady Hamilton Vintage Quartz arrive in “Today” and “Tomorrow” versions. The former boasts soft textures and vibrant shades of pink, purple and white accented with diamonds, light yellow gold PVD and powdery rose leather material. The designs are completed with subtle elements like rounded shapes and muted tones. Meanwhile, the “Tomorrow” line takes the bolder route with its metallic leather straps, smooth textures and cool tones. Providing balance are the straight lines and neutral color palette of gold, silver and black.
Take a closer look at the different iterations above. The Janie Bryant x Hamilton capsule is now available to shop online.
Hamilton and costume designer announce watch capsule. Travel through time hollywood-style with alluring timepieces for today and tomorrow.
Janie expresses the immediate evolution of our chosen capsule watches with subtle colors, soft textures and warm tones. Diamond accents, light yellow gold PVD and a powdery rose leather give today’s timepieces a dash of Hollywood glamour.
If Bryant’s interpretation of present-day is understated poise, tomorrow shines bold and bright. Metallic leather straps, smooth textures and cold tones bring our historical designs seamlessly into the future.
“I really love that costume design is about creating different time periods but it also appeals to modern audiences. We get to see all of our work on a set and know – that piece of film or TV show will last forever.”
