Through the simple pleasure of slightly retrogressive and thoroughly delicious memories, you can return to your childhood and enjoy yourself. “Our The idea is to re-examine the existing series while playing with colors. This allows me to bring out a kind of pop music pleasure. In general, we developed a palette of 60 colors for this unisex series, “Cécile Guenat, the art director of the series, explained.
The Bonbon series shows a range of colors from green, deep red, yellow to even pink, thanks to the mastery of materials, many of which are exclusive, which is Richard Mille’s specialty. The craftsmen of Richard Mille understand the performance of colored ceramics and rely on their expertise in layered materials such as carbon TPT® and quartz TPT®, as well as the continuous improvement and imaginative shape of colored gemstone settings And peculiar colors (such as cupcakes and ice cream) become beautiful crowns and basebands.
The Sweets series includes four models, all equipped with a two-color ceramic case, set off the Grand Feu enamel or black chrome-plated titanium metal candy. RM 07-03 Cupcakes, RM 07-03 Marshmallow, RM 37-01 Sucette and RM 16-01 Réglisse are colorful, delicious and evoke all tastes. This special range reflects the mastery of material combinations and a keen eye for layered textures to evoke the soft, crunchy and fluffy feelings of candy. The matte and polished effects of various elements on the dial enhance the creamy texture of the TZP ceramic case. Black, the basic color in Richard Mille’s technical vocabulary, is presented here in a new way, just like a huge licorice roll that occupies the entire dial surface.
The Fruit series is a tribute to the sweet temptation concept of six delicious flavors: lemon and strawberry (RM 16-01 Citron et Fraise), blueberry and lychee (RM 07-03 Myrtille et Litchi), kiwi and cherry (RM 37) -01 Kiwi and cherries). In addition to the gradient color housing made of carbon TPT® and quartz TPT®, each model also has a new turquoise color. The 3,000 miniature sculptures in these works are painted with acrylic paint and painted by hand, which stand out from the dial, turning each one into a small bag full of small candies.
