Three intertwined hoops of white, yellow, and rose gold. Louis Cartier created the Trinity ring for Jean Cocteau in 1924, and it became an instant success, a minimalist exception with pure lines amidst the enthusiasm of the Art Deco movement that dominated the era. Over the decades, Cartier introduced Trinity bracelets and pendants, also made of different materials. The three precious circles became one of the symbols of the house.
So the house wants to celebrate the centenary of this gem with three different and almost simultaneous parties in the three capitals where the three Cartier brothers (Louis, Pierre, and Jacques) laid the commercial foundations of the brand: the store on rue La Paix, recently renovated, the boutique on New Bond Street, and the flagship on Fifth Avenue in New York.
On February 1, the legendary Chelsea Hotel in New York hosted the first party, attended by, among others, the actress Yara Shahidi, the brand’s new ambassador. On February 5, Cartier chose the London theater Ladbroke Hall to hold the second one, sponsored by another new ambassador, Paul Mescal, the new fashionable boy of social networks.
The cherry on top of the celebrations was placed on the 7th at the Petit Palais in Paris with other Trinity ambassadors: the Korean artist JISOO, the Hong Kong singer Jackson Wang, and the British singer-songwriter Labritnh. The dinner was followed by performances by Sia, Diplo, and the dance collective La Horde.
Among the guests of the evening in Paris, other faces associated with Cartier stood out, including: Jake Gyllenhaal, Vanessa Kirby, Rami Malek, Monica Bellucci, Sofia Coppola, Isabelle Huppert, Emma Corrin, Manu Rios, Emma Chamberlain, Úrsula Corberó, Lou Doillon, Deva Cassel, or the choreographer Blanca Li.
To celebrate the anniversary, Cartier reissued the Trinity XL ring and bracelet, which have become cult objects among collectors, and launched a new set of pieces with three elements in a quadrangular shape.
