A personality has multiple facets — a saying that we all know very well. It often applies to a person’s character, and rarely for objects but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible. Clash de Cartier, the newest jewellery novelty by Cartier is said to be like the above — a two-sided jewel. It’s attributed to be a jewellery collection that “shakes up the heritage of the Maison” with the use of the brand’s iconic studs, beads and clous carré into a singular, ribbed mesh. The design may be the biggest reason for its success but the heart of the line, its duality, sets them apart from the rest.
A match of opposites may not be something unheard of but Cartier has pushed it beyond the boundaries of what everyone expects from a high-end jewellery brand. A stunning piece that is sharp but soft to the touch; geometrical but generously sized and feminine; mechanical but free to move. It is exactly as what Cartier described ‘an expression of duality, dynamic tension and a “clash” of attitude’.
English-Brazilian actress, Kaya Scodelario is the face of Clash de Cartier. The actress captures the duality of the collection, cultivates two facets of the same energy in a stylish balancing act which she portrayed in a campaign film directed by Gordon Von Steiner.
