The brainchild of Giorgio Grimoldi, a son of the Grimoldi Milano jewellery dynasty in Italy, Vabene is an all-Italian lifestyle watch brand that has made a colourful splash into Singapore’s vibrant Orchard Road shopping scene. As you walk by its new boutique at Mandarin Gallery, it’s hard not to be lured into its fun and funky interior, full of tongue-in-cheek blocks of colour popping out from the bright white background.
It’s the perfect backdrop for the Vabene brand, one that thrives on everything enthusiastic, happy, youthful, fun-loving and passionate. Its hip and bold philosophy carries over into its glitzy and playful timepieces, each piece a personification of the creative genius of its founder. Combining stylish aesthetics with true quality and substance, each piece of wrist candy is distinguished by three punctuation marks in the colours of the Italian flag.
According to Giorgio, ‘Vabene embodies a funky, ironic, colourful and highly glamorous universe. Its basic values are those of design, innovation, creativity, sophistication, style and originality. Above all, fun!’ At Vabene, a new model is launched every six months, capturing the spirit of the times and incorporating enough of the future to enthrall a devoted following. Not surprisingly, these include celebrities from Michael J. Fox and Jackie Chan to the Osbornes, Ozzy, Sharon and Kelly.
