Rizzoli's coffee-table book "Cartier Design: A Living Legacy" is not a nostalgic journey through the past, but seeks to draw attention to how Cartier's legacy serves as inspiration for new generations of designers around the world, and how these repertoires take on a new spirit when reinvented by a new generation responsible for continuing, developing, renewing and keeping alive the fashion house's great legacy.
Five thematic units - The early days and the birth of a style, Universal curiosity, The taste of Jeanne Toussaint, Carrying beauty and measuring time, and María Félix and icons of elegance - present nearly 180 pieces from the Cartier collection and from institutional and private collections. In this way, the coffee table book gives us insight into the history of the house and the development of its unique language and style, its savoir faire and its evolution.
