On Tuesday night, Cartier surprised guests like Alexandra Richards, Anh Duong, Arthur Elgort, Bianca Brandolini, Carey Mulligan, Carlotta Kohl, Carolyn Murphy, Casey Neistat, Celerie Kemble, Charlotte Groeneveld, Derek Blasberg, Diane Kruger, Eugenie Niarchos, Fernando Garcia & Laura Kim, Gucci Westman, Hannah Bronfman, Jason Wu, Jessica Hart, Harry & Jill Kargman, Martha Stewart, Mazdack & Zanna Roberts Rassi, Nicky Rothschild, Pat Cleveland, Sofia Boutella, Sofia Coppola, and Zoe Buckman with a special dinner and performance on Governors Island in New York.
Gathering at Pier 16 just as the sun was setting, attendees invited by Cyrille Vigneron, President& CEO of Cartier International, and Mercedes Abramo, President & CEO of Cartier North America, found themselves taking a ferry to the island, while enjoy mini bottles of champagne and enjoying the glittering New York City skyline.
After arriving on shore, Cartier-red trolleys transported everyone to a large clear tent, through which the city and Statue of Liberty were viewable. Under a gorgeous installation of floating lights, cocktails were enjoyed before a special presentation of the high jewelry collection, Résonances de Cartier. A delicious dinner of caviar, braised beef, and polenta by Chef Dan Barber was followed by an incredible performance from Andra Day, Jon Batiste, and a DJ set by Grandmaster Flash.
The house is celebrating over 170 years of high jewelry with “The Cartier Haute Joaillerie” exhibition at its Fifth Avenue flagship. It is the largest collection of Cartier high jewelry to be shown in the US, and will be open to the public October 21—29.
