Cartier’s savoir-faire comes to life in the new Fall/Winter 2020 Eyewear collection with a balance of materials and heritage-inspired details that fuse timeless elegance and contemporary design.
Geometric shapes and signed details distinguish the Santos de Cartier styles evoking the iconic watch created in 1904 for aviator Alberto Santos Dumont. The navigator and pilot designs exude a strong masculine aesthetic that is bold and instantly recognizable. Visible screws punctuate the luminous contours to recall airplane rivets, while the frames’ sharp profiles echo the emblematic cut of the Santos watchcase.
Inspired by the powerful magnetism of the panther, the new Panthère de Cartier unisex sunglasses play with the distinctive twist of the feline head enriched with hand-lacquered eyes.
The Maison’s passion for high refinement is expressed by the Trinity de Cartier frames inspired by the namesake ring and its signature interlaced design. A luminous mix of materials and precious finishes elevates the elegant proportions of the sunglass and optical styles, which bear a front knot detail and a miniature ring as a symbol of friendship, love and fidelity.
The collection also includes a new Première de Cartier feminine optical frame with metal profiles featuring the C de Cartier detail, the Godron motif and a Cartier-logoed plaque on the temple tips.
