With all the attention Roberto Cavalli's highly quotable new blog has been getting, we almost overlooked his latest collab with Swiss watchmaker Franck Muller. According to Interview Magazine, the two are old friends and share the principle of "living life with passion." No word on how this conviction will translate into the design of these fall 2012 watches, but we must give Roberto props: WWD reports today that Swiss watch sales rose by 21-percent in December. Seems like the Italian designer might be on to something.
