WATCH OUT: Skulls may have become a tad fashion victim, but Colette is backing a design it feels has more substance. Today, a new limited edition BR01 Airborne skull watch line by Bell & Ross goes on sale in the store which has bagged a two-week exclusive. Launched to coincide with the 65th anniversary of D-Day, the line, with its skull-shaped faces, pays homage to the emblems on uniforms worn by paratroopers of the U.S. Airborne divisions during World War II, said to symbolize courage in the face of death. “I think it’s a great project as it has a real story behind it and real technique,” said Colette’s Sarah Lerfel, who has chosen to dedicate the store’s windows to the line for its launch, along with a parachute and airplane seat for mood.
