Cartier to hold ‘pop-up’ event in Melbourne

French jewellery house Cartier will bring a selection of its historic Panthère watches and jewellery to Australia for an immersive event in Melbourne’s Federation Square.

Cartier: Into The Wild, an interactive exhibition, will take place from March 6–17. It explores the creation of the collection in the mid-20th Century by jewellery designer Jeanne Toussaint.

Toussaint, who was nicknamed ‘The Panther’, became Cartier’s first female creative director of jewellery in 1933. Her designs often featured animal motifs and a strong Indian influence, favouring yellow gold and colour gemstones such as emerald, ruby, sapphire, coral and amethyst.

Toussaint’s first 3D panther-inspired piece – a gold and enamel brooch featuring a 116-carat emerald – was made in 1948 and worn by Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, a controversial member of the British royal family.

Today, the Panthère collection includes a variety of fine jewellery pieces, watches and accessories.

The new exhibition is open to the public and will be held at Federation Square’s The Atrium venue. Priority access can be booked here.
