Richard Mille Takes a Feminine Spin

Fashion News
Fans taking part in the Rallye des Princesses in France

A sight to rival any Formula One race is the Rallye des Princesses in France. This women-only rally brings together 90 crews from 12 different countries who traverse nearly 1,000 miles from Paris to Saint Tropez, and for the third year in a row, watchmaker Richard Mille partnered on this truly unique event.

Vying for as much attention as the powerhouse women behind the wheel are the cars themselves. A mix of classic and historic cars—including Ferrari 328 GTS, Porsche 911, PGO Seven—took to the roads for this five-day journey across one of the most scenic routes imaginable.

The race began in Paris at the famed Place Vendome, then to Loiret, the countryside around Briare, the Indre department and Cheravent. The next day was spent crossing Route des Châteaux to the track at La Chatre, and on to Vichy before the final leg began around L’Alpe d’Huez before crossing the Hauts Plateaux du Vercors and the breath-taking Gorges d’Engins.

Before the journey came to its end, the drivers had to cross five Alpine passes before descending toward the Cote d’Azur to the finish line at Place des Lices in Saint-Tropez.

To ensure that some Richard Mille enthusiasts would enjoy a truly immersive experience, five Porsche 356 and one Porsche 911 were made available to clients and friends of the brand, who were each invited to wear a watch from the ladies collection—natch.
