Chopard is a perennial favorite of the rich and famous in cinema, fashion, and honorary pathway occasions. In any case, I have never seen watches and adornments by this Geneva maker of the extraordinary take on such a starring job in a film as Chopard does in the musical Elton John biopic Rocketman.
Though I guess it shouldn’t be very that bewildering as Chopard co-president and artistic chief Caroline Scheufele is a personal companion of the artist, and the two have regularly co-organized occasions for charity – among them, Chopard’s many years of supporting the Elton John AIDS Foundation , which was established in 1992. The foundation has to date raised more than $400 million.
“Elton John is an extremely dear companion of mine, tremendously skilled in his talent, regardless of whether it is in his music, which I absolutely love, or his style and persona,” Scheufele said. “Rocketman emphasizes further exactly the amount of an inspiration Sir Elton is, through his incomparable panache and story. I was pleased to participate in this film and wanted to guarantee that Chopard gems and watch creations would help transform actor Taron Egerton into Sir Elton John!”
The film spins around “Reg’s” extravagant life – John’s real name is Reginald Kenneth Dwight – a major part of which is his fashion (in 2015, he was even named one of GQ’s 50 best-dressed British men – as was Egerton ). So it’s not astonishing that the 72-year-old artist has been a notable gems and watch gatherer, and one who has already cleansed his adornments box twice via Sotheby’s London (1988 and 1993), perhaps to make space for new acquisitions. In the film, John’s character admits to being addicted to shopping among different things during therapy.
Egerton appears on screen wearing various Chopard creations from the Happy Hearts , Happy Diamonds , Happy Spirit , Happy Sport , and Animal World high adornments lines.
These sparkling works complement the whimsical and, indeed, unpredictable look the pop vocalist adopted after a relatively thoughtful youth as depicted in the biopic. They also mirror the artist’s metamorphosing way of life as he rose to extraordinary statures of accomplishment. However, note that the things found in the film are not the original watches and bits of gems John possessed at the time. They are interpretations picked by the film’s ensemble fashioner, Julian Day.
But not just Egerton, playing Elton John, had the chance to wear beautiful Chopard things on set. Bryce Dallas Howard, who plays John’s oddball mother in the film, is also honored with showcasing some beautiful sparklers – among them a pink gold Happy Sport watch that was part of 2018’s twenty-fifth anniversary of Happy Sport collection.
These animated watches feature versatile diamond settings that rush and run across the dial with each development of the wrist. For the anniversary, Chopard also presented another automatic manufacture development specially produced for these smaller watches near 30 mm in diameter: Caliber 09.01 C.
In case you haven’t yet seen Rocketman, I can energetically recommend this hallucinogenic musical excursion through a world of fond memories. And not just for its exuberant fashion.
