Palazzo Spini Feroni, the Florentine heart of this fashion house, in fact stands at the start of via Tornabuoni and 1927 marks the year of Salvatore Ferragamo’s return to Italy after a great success in Hollywood.

Tornabuoni 1927 comprises an assortment of Large Leather Goods and Small Leather Goods designed mainly for leisure time, for those stylish moments outside the office. A line with a precise identity that also embraces more youthful elements and more affordable articles.
The Large Leather Goods have three main themes:
A selection of bags in deerskin, incredibly soft and unbelievably light, which include a sailing bag and a tote, available in black and white, and a clutch. They all feature the embossed Tornabuoni 1927 logo as their distinguishing mark.
An assortment of accessories in nylon with a 3D rubber logo application: from the generous backpack with shoulder straps in a padded technical fabric, perfect for city movers, to the shopping totes, especially the red version with black lettering and the one innavy blue.
Finally, again in nylon, but with the logo printed on a small leather label: a backpack, waist bag, hands-free bag in black and navy and a small shoulder bag.
Standing out among the Small Leather Goods, in deerskin, are a wallet, black or white, and a credit card holder in the same palette.

Excess is the norm at Roger Dubuis, firmly focused on a vision of the world that is based on a philosophy of living larger than life. Stirred although in no way submissive to the past, the brand that dares to be different nonetheless maintains a resolute eye on the future. In addition to these drivers, thanks to the support of an integrated Manufacture from its very beginnings, Roger Dubuis’ unparalleled technical expertise is seamlessly blended with its unleashed creativity. Thus inspired by visionary engineers, and crafted by incredible watchmakers, the timepieces resulting from this sometimes diabolical duality are unquestionable proof that Roger Dubuis is without a doubt the most exciting way to experience Hyper Horology.
Why break the rules when you can reinvent the game?
Roger Dubuis also draws on cutting-edge industries that share the same values. In recent years, this has given birth to an iconic alliance with Italian legend Lamborghini Squadra Corse. Channelling unreasonable sensations and exceptional power, the Excalibur Aventador S was the first horological expression of this high-speed partnership to hit the track and the Manufacture is gearing up to introduce a new black-and-red version.
Living up to the “Powered by Raging Mechanics” signature, and fuelled by a shared flair for technological complexity, the Excalibur Aventador S is impelled by an ‘engine’ in the shape of the specially developed Duotor calibre. Duly protected by five patents, the Lamborghini-exclusive Roger Dubuis movement embodies an ongoing evolution of the Maison’s expertise, entirely reinterpreted in light of this automobile alliance.The Excalibur Aventador S features a range of easily identifiable design elements drawn directly from its motorised alter ego, complete with two sprung balances inclined at 45 degrees, strut bars, a power reserve with racing codes and an Alcantara strap.
Hypercar Meets Hyperwatch
On July 29th, Lamborghini Squadra Corse and Roger Dubuis will showcase their resolutely future-driven approach by simultaneously unveiling an amazing hypercar and the hyperwatch inspired by their adrenaline-fuelled partnership. Lamborghini’s freshly evolved SCV12 is the first limited-edition V12 engine-based hypercar for track only, specially boosted for Super Trofeo races and the most powerful ever made by Lamborghini. It has the capacity to exceed 830 hp thanks to aerodynamic supercharging at high speed, along with higher downforce levels than a GT3 car and unprecedented aerodynamic efficiency. In creating the new Excalibur Essenza SCV12, Roger Dubuis has likewise evolved its Duotor, stripping it down to essentials to enhance performance, while harmonising the design codes shared by the timepiece and the fearsome speed machine. Freed from its upper bridge and reworked in skeleton flying mode shaped like the wheel-rim of the Lamborghini Essenza SCV12, the barrel can be viewed from the top as if one were peering through a transparent supercar hood. The strut bars on the top of the calibre remain a signature feature of Excalibur Lamborghini-inspired models.
Like Lamborghini, which is renowned for customised supercars based on its famous “Ad personam” programme, Roger Dubuis aficionados can enjoy the same level of service through the exclusive “Rarities” programme offered by the Geneva-based Manufacture. The ultimate expression of individual creativity, this concept takes the term “bespoke” into a whole new dimension of hyper personalisation. It will enable each lucky owner to enjoy the thrill of co-creating and owning a truly one-of-a-kind version of the Excalibur Essenza SCV12.
Living the Gearhead Fantasy
Every bit as personalised as the spectacular bolide that inspired it, this peak example of hyper horology is an invitation extended by Roger Dubuis to its Hyper Tribe to experience yet another incredible auto-horological adventure staged by the Manufacture.
