Swatch has collaborated with Japanese artist Hideaki Kawashima in two fantastic designed New Gent watches.
Swatch has collaborated with acclaimed Japanese artist Hideaki Kawashima, for the design of two New Gent Swatch from the Swatch Art & Fashion Collection; a distinctly feminine face and large slanting eyes with a small mouth on the face of the watch, which are framed by waves in the strap as if it were treated hair and mark the design of two new creations from the famous Swiss watch brand, one blue and one pink.
The designer Hideaki Kawashima was born in Aichi, Japan in 1969
Presently living in Tokyo, where he graduated from the University of Tokyo Zokei in 1991.
In 1995 he began to be a coach of classical Buddhism. His work is based on acrylic paint, often using a palette of pastel colors or even translucent. This creates images that are focused on the female face and form, drawing on spiritual resources such as Buddhism.
You can find all these watches in Art, fashion & sport collection of Swatch, or see the two watches separately:
Swatch Watch - Blue Wraith SUOZ107
Swatch Watch - Pink Wraith SUOZ108S
