Inspired: Brera Orologi + Stephen Gamson
For the holidays Brera Orologi commissioned pop artist Stephen Gamson to design a limited-edition watch collection exclusively for Neiman Marcus.
The American artist faced the Italian watchmaker’s unisex Eterno Piccolo and Eterno Solotempo styles with his signature contemporary hieroglyphic-like symbolism. Resulting in an artful juxtaposition of Gamson’s transcendent work—a vocabulary of bold symbols such as sunshine, hearts, silhouette characters, human forms and other universally understood iconography—with an object that literally depicts time.
“Ancient hieroglyphics whisper secrets on walls of pyramids and timeless cave dwellings, speaking volumes about the ancient societies that once ruled the earth. Signage is a global language that is spoken through symbols, understood by all in the modern age of globalization and communication. I celebrate this iconic imagery through its relevance to activities that define the lives of our modern society.” - Stephen Gamson
