Akoni’s Virgo channels the optimistic spirit of the mid-century, when Europe’s biggest stars would slip on similar silhouettes at classic beach resorts. At the same time, America’s Pop-Art movement was beginning to blossom—as audacious new visions relyied on the same bold shapes, pops of bright colors and dot-matrix patterns that Virgo echoes today. Virgo’s sculpted full-acetate face builds on impressive color possibilities, with strong black, powerful orange and an enticing grey-pink swirl, all perfectly framed by contrasting enamels.
