So sorry, autumn and winter lovers, but summer is not over yet — at least not until Cartier says so. The maison has unveiled a collection of accessories and decorative objects that celebrate the season of warmth and outdoor fun in style.
Each item is decorated with a refreshed image of one of the house’s beloved characters. An agile panther, an exuberant toucan, a stately crocodile or a tranquil palm tree — these characters evoke the care-free spirit of summer, made more zestful by the incorporation of the hues of calming greens, fiery reds and cheery yellows.
If you have yet to swap your beach and pool days for more cosy indoor activities, then this collection has everything you need to keep the good times rolling. Fluffy bath towels offer the perfect post-swim dry-down; gold-laced porcelain cups and plates add whimsy to a picnic spread; panther-print paddle rackets make sure not a listless moment goes by; and a quirky key ring lends a jocose touch to a set of keys or even the handle of a beach bag.
Those faithful to the house’s panther icon may liven up the home with the brilliant turquoise and coral Panthère Tropicale items. Featuring the celebrated wildcat logo set against a backdrop of gold palm trees, the pieces come in the shape of trinket trays, vases and placemats — perfect for your next interior decor redo or as a housewarming gift for the fashionable person in your life.
