Jewelry might seem like a static object, pulled out at opportune style moments to make a statement or attract a lingering glance, but we’re of the mind that it’s far more dynamic than all that. Jewelry – especially fine-jewelry produced at the exalted level of a house like Cartier – can be a prism for reflecting one’s personality. After all, none of us are singular in dimension. And if we were, the world would be a boring place.
Instead, we are multifaceted creatures, sometimes even contradictory in opinion and appearance. Cartier acknowledges the complex nature of humans with its bold new ‘Clash de Cartier’ collection, which juxtaposes sharp angles with soft, polished surfaces and a fixed yet malleable structure. Studs, beads, and clous carrés are all part of the Cartier heritage, but ‘Clash de Cartier’ offers a new jewelry signature by combining these elements and forming them into a single ribbed mesh for comfortable wear. And accompanying the bold collection is the idea that it can be worn by men and women alike – it doesn’t discriminate.
To communicate this message of duality, Cartier tapped actress Kaya Scodelario, who shows off starkly different sides of herself in the video shared exclusively with Savoir Flair, above. On one hand, she is darkly enigmatic, edgy, and masculine. And on the other? Classic, aristocratic, and feminine. Explore both sides by taking a closer look at the Cartier ‘Clash de Cartier’ collection in the gallery, below.
