Paris-based photographer, Dani Olivier is specialised in “abstract and psychedelic nudes”, human bodies covered in striations of coloured light. Olivier’s portraits are real photographs, not the result of digital manipulation. Dani Olivier accomplishes the effects by projecting light patterns onto nude bodies set against a jet-black background, creating completely surreal forms.
In a collaboration that began in 2015, Corum Mens Replica has miniaturized Olivier’s art, transferring two of his most distinctive photographs on the dials of its Bubble wristreplica watch.
Care has been taken to ensure that the Bubble is a fitting canvas for Olivier’s art, with even the Corum key logo at three o’clock being applied in the same vivid colours as the portraits. And the rhodium-plated hands have been filled with matte black lacquer, allowing them to stand out enough to be legible, while not distracting from the artwork behind. And to match the deep black background of Olivier’s portraits, the signature, 47 mm Corum Bubble replica watch case has been coated in black PVD.
Both of the Bubble Dani Olivier editions are limited to just 88 replica watches each, with the final, 88th timepiece in each edition being a one-off, unique piece. The 88th wristreplica watch features the same artwork on the dial, but is distinguished by a red gold bezel that serves as a frame for Olivier’s photographs.
