The meaning of étourdissant is difficult to capture in one word. It roughly translates to astonishing, dazzling, stunning, and splendid all at once. At Cartier, étourdissant best expresses the whirlwind sense of exhilaration, intoxication and dynamism felt when one takes the time to reflect upon and be inspired by the world we live in.
In commemoration of Singapore’s 50th anniversary, Cartier debuted the étourdissant Cartier exhibition at the Pinacothèque de Paris. A one-day public exhibition, it featured more than six hundred pieces of haute joaillerie, haute horlogerie and precious objets d’art. The exhibition marked the first time Cartier has ever showcased a full contemporary collection of haute joaillerie for public viewing. Over sixty of the featured pieces at the exhibition made their world debut in Singapore – another first for the Maison.
From November 30th to December 4th, 2015, the astonishing étourdissant collection will make its way to Miami. A few hundred pieces of high jewelry and precious watches will be showcased during Miami Art Basel.
Celebrate and share Cartier’s passion for art and craftsmanship.
