Hublot had a lot to celebrate at their event last night in Los Angeles. Not only did they open a newly redesigned Hublot Beverly Hills boutique, they also celebrated the launch of their latest timepiece with none other than Brand Ambassador Kobe Bryant. After releasing two successful Kobe Bryant collaborations in 2013 and 2015, the 2016 Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillian is poised to be another advantageous venture.
Kobe Bryant shared, “I’m honored to celebrate the launch of my third Hublot timepiece as I continue my pursuit of excellence and reflect on my career. The Classic Fusion Kobe Bryant HeroVillain symbolizes my life as a HeroVillain during my 20-year basketball career, as I strive to channel my fears and doubts into strength and determination. When I joined the Hublot family in 2013, it was a natural fit and I’m thrilled to share this special occasion here in Los Angeles today.”
Kobe Bryant was joined by Jean- François Sberro, Managing Director Hublot of America, and Greg Simonian, Owner of Hublot Beverly Hills boutique, to cut the ribbon and officially open the entirely renovated 1376 square foot store. You can now expect to experience a modern study in gray tonal textures and materials, including ebony wood paneled walls and doors; graphite leather wall accents and slate floors; stainless steel, glass, and hammered metal fixtures and watch cases; and distinctive yet refined repeated Hublot “H” logos integrated on glass panels inside the black stone façade.
Jean-François Sberro, Managing Director Hublot of America, concluded, “We are thrilled to celebrate this exciting milestone with Kobe Bryant, as we launch our third timepiece with the basketball legend, and celebrate his impressive and dynamic career. Kobe is a basketball icon and his astounding achievements have made him the perfect fit for Hublot, as we continue to blend the worlds of luxury watchmaking and sports. We feel honored to have Kobe partake in this occasion at our newly redesigned Beverly Hills boutique.”
