Cartier’s New Line is an Androgynous Ode to Rebellion

Clash de Cartier is a celebration of complex craftsmanship

by

Cartier’s new collection is finally here—and it’s everything we’ve all been waiting for from the French house.

 

With its Love and Juste un Clou collections, the house of Cartier has always lived by its iconoclastic heritage. But their latest release is bound to shake things up, hence the name Clash de Cartier.

 

 

 

Both sharp and soft in its design, Clash de Cartier signifies a new beginning for the luxury jewellery brand, all while staying true to the brand’s classic craftsmanship.

 

Described as “a mix and match of aristocratic codes”, the new collection brings a modernist touch to the legendary house. With clean lines and even spacing (created by instilling new mechanisms developed by the house’s jewellery workshops) made especially for the collection.

 

 

 

With minimalist studs, that look as if they’re held in place but are in fact movable individual parts, and various rings that can be stacked and layered, Clash de Cartier introduces a new silhouette that is neither feminine nor masculine, making the new line destined to be as iconic as its predecessors.

 

 

 

To celebrate the launch, Cartier announced English actress Kaya Scodelario as the face of the collection. Best known for her roles on critically-acclaimed TV show Skins, and films like The Maze Runner and Pirates of the Caribbean, Scodelario also starred in a film for the French house directed by Gordon Von Steiner, where we see her play two characters, emblematic of the Clash de Cartier’s rebellious attitude.
