Movado announces the global launch of the Esperanza® collection, which will take place this fall. The updated collection will showcase a modern and sensual identity, featuring the iconic Esperanza bracelet using negative space in the distinctive bracelet design – a major trend in today’s fashion and accessories.

The brand introduced Esperanza in the US over 30 years ago, which successfully became a breakthrough design that quickly surged in popularity, becoming the brand signature and best-seller.

Defined by its architecturally inspired bracelet which included long, open, vertical links, this striking style was sleekly integrated with a round, softly curved case that complemented the simple purity of the Museum dial.

A brand long identified with Modernism and closely associated with the performing arts, Movado has achieved a proud 135-year history of design excellence and innovation, being a major supporter of New York City Ballet, and the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts.

“We are very excited to re-introduce the landmark Esperanza collection to all global markets this fall,” stated Efraim Grinberg, Chairman & CEO, Movado Group.
