Free-spirited, legendary and forever enchanting. A French luxury Maison, open-minded and curious about the world, Cartier designs timeless creations and finds beauty wherever it may lie. In tune and engaged with its time and constantly enriching its legacy, Cartier continues to expand the limits of creativity and enhance beauty with its savoir-faire. Founded during the era of great inventions, Cartier has always been inspired by the progression of ideas and artistic movements. The Maison continues this progression today, all the while creating an expression of its own. Love, Trinity, Juste un Clou, Tank, Panthère, Santos… From high and fine jewellery to watchmaking, from leather goods to fragrances, eyewear and objects, Cartier reveals beauty in every creation, with just the right touch of panache and the secret signature of its unique expertise. For over 30 years, Cartier has created exceptional eyewear, each a testimony to the style and history of Cartier: Santos de Cartier, Panthère de Cartier, Première de Cartier, Signature C de Cartier and Trinity de Cartier.
An object of desire and an emblem of powerful femininity, the Panthère de Cartier theme evokes Cartier’s latest handbag collection featuring a revamped feline head with a rock chic look. The panther is rendered with a faceted effect and glowing touches of enamel on the oversize metal contours, and on the narrow acetate style in full swing with the overall 3D geometrical feel that also recalls the feline head on the cut of the bridge and of the lenses.
The Première de Cartier seasonal selection updates iconic frames from the 80s, combining vintage inspiration and fresh creativity. A narrow rectangular shape from the archive is restyled and perfected with wood or horn temples and Godron motifs. Besides ensuring maximum lightness, comfort and distinction, the unique mix of noble materials and eye-catching detailing once again attests to the Maison’s striking savoir-faire and artistry.
The Santos de Cartier selection celebrates the fearless spirit of Santos Dumont through screw details borrowed from the iconic watch that was first created in 1904 for the Brazilian aviator. Classic allure evolves into modernity as the Maison’s innovative approach shifts from lightweight half-rim optical shapes to floating sunglass structures – all crafted from golden and platinum-finished metal.
The Signature C De Cartier line is as respectful of the Maison’s rich tradition as it is edgy and innovative in its reinterpretation of vintage allure, expressed in a rimless rectangular shape enriched with the exquisite C Décor detail as an instant reference to Cartier’s iconic jewellery pieces.
