Gucci launch new renewable Dive watch collection

EXPERIMENTING with new bio-based materials, Gucci has released the exciting – and colourful – new Dive collection, merging sportswear with high fashion in a playfully bold new line.

It was made more clear than ever the past week, with an extreme prolonged heatwave in the UK, that the move toward eco-friendly materials was no longer a niche choice for fashion design houses, but rather a mandatory expectation to try and reverse our rapidly changing climate. Championing a reduced carbon footprint, Gucci have begun experimenting with different, renewable materials to create their pieces.

The new Dive watches are an excellent example, made from bio-based materials, plant-based plastics and recycled steel (46% of the bracelet and 65% of the case are made from bio-based material). The watches, coming in an aqua blue, moss green, white and transparent are furthermore created with the sport-savvy firmly in mind, with each model waterproof up to 200 metres.
