Fusing timeless elegance and contemporary design, the new collection celebrates the maison’s savoir-faire
With a balance of materials and heritage-inspired details that fuse timeless elegance and contemporary design, Cartier’s savoir-faire comes to life in its latest fall/winter 2020 eyewear collection.
The collection’s 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. Moreover, its visible screws punctuate the luminous contours to recall airplane rivets, while the frames’ sharp profiles echo the emblematic cut of the iconic Santos watchcase.
On the other hand, the maison’s passion for high refinement is also expressed by the Trinity de Cartier frames which is inspired by the eponymous ring and its signature interlaced design. A luminous mix of materials and precious finishes elevates the elegant proportions of the sunglasses and optical styles, which bear a front knot detail and a miniature ring as a symbol of friendship, love and fidelity.
Overall, with its timeless elegance and contemporary design that plays with materials and payshomage to the maison’s heritage, this fall/winter 2020 eyewear collection definitely celebrates Cartier’s savoir-faire.
