Cartier Unveils Cinematic Jewel

HollywoodNews.com: the House of Cartier showcased its standout creativity and innovation with the international online release of “L’Odyssee de Cartier” – a three-and-one-half minute film that chronicles Cartier’s 165 years of rich history, offering viewers a tour of the one-of-a-kind jeweler’s cultural influences that include France, Russia, China and India. Making its U.S. television debut on Sunday, March 4, “L’Odyssee de Cartier” – directed by one of the world’s leading advertising directors, Bruno Aveillan – will air in its entirety during prime time on national TV networks.
The film tells the story of the jeweler’s unique history, from its beginnings as a jeweler to European royalty to its modern-day worldwide luxury status.

The film features many of Cartier’s most enduring and iconic designs, including the “Tutti Frutti” style, jewelry of the Maharajas and a reference to the Santos watch, which was the first modern watch designed to be worn on the wrist.
The original score for “L’Odyssee de Cartier,” which was composed and arranged by renowned orchestrator Pierre Adenot, was recorded at London’s legendary Abbey Road studios. Supermodel Shalom Harlow portrays the “Lady in the Mansion” and modern-day muse, embodying the spirit of the Cartier woman – elegant, passionate and independent. The filming took place over the three months with a crew of 60 people on location.
“The Panther in the film is the ultimate emblem of Cartier’s jewelry expertise and a symbol of strength and freedom,” said Emmanuel Perrin, President and CEO of Cartier North America. “Regal and charming, she is aware of the world around her and follows her instinct with a sharp emerald eye, ready to pounce and enjoy life to the fullest.”
Since its inception in 1847, the House of Cartier established its name around the world. The Cartier brothers were among the first to create a global business with Louis Cartier remaining in Paris to oversee the boutique at 13 Rue de la Paix (1899), Jacques opening a boutique at 175 New Bond Street in London (1909) and Pierre establishing the U.S. business with a boutique on Fifth Avenue in New York (1909).
