Longines presents DOLCEVITA X YVY, a new series of the famous rectangular timepieces created in partnership with Swiss designer Yvonne Reichmuth.
Swiss fashion designer Yvonne has given the DOLCEVITA watch a new identity, with sophisticated leather straps inspired by bridles and harnesses referencing the equestrian world so dear to Longines.
The Longines DolceVita X YVY watch models come with subtle double straps in leather, in three shades: double beige leather, brown and black with rivets.
The design of these new Dolcevita watch models was entrusted to the Zurich-based company YVY, creators of sophisticated glam-rock accessories popular with international stars and clientele looking for exclusivity.
Born in Switzerland in 1986, Yvonne Reichmuth is a prominent fashion designer. Winner of several awards from the fashion world, she established her design studio YVY in 2020 in Zurich. Her designs are worn by celebrities like Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Kylie Jenner, Gwen Stefani and Janet Jackson,
