“Dance like nobody’s watching”- one of those things that is easier said than done. We may be shy to show our true colors sometimes, but there’s no stopping us from making bold moves like Jagger’s with a statement handbag.
The classic Coach Duffle bag is given a new soul with the intricately woven motif. I almost could hear the sound of drums while carrying it..almost. *Hakuna matata, what a wonderful phrase!*

The last stop of our trip with Cartier is The Fondation Cartier pour l’Art Contemporain, a contemporary art museum where we got to see the brand in new light.
Entirely dedicated to showcasing modern art pieces and installations, the museum has no trace of Cartier’s business or glamorous image except its name. It is a space where the brand wants the focus to be exclusively on the artists and their work – such generous, philanthropic gesture just makes me admire the brand even more.
Jean Nouvel, the designer of The Fondation Cartier, was trying to create a sense of “situational poetic” and interaction with surroundings by using glass on all sides of the building which captures instants in time and the light changing. It is a memerising work of art itself.
As you can tell from the picture, the weather was lovely on the day of our visit which really showed the beauty of the structure at its best, and wrapped up our journey delightfully.
A quick post of my photos with WhoAreInvited, an unique digital platform in Hong Kong that brings together creative talents from all walks of life.
It is thrilling to have the opportunities to work with some of the best creative minds in the industry and I have learnt so much from each of the shoots. The magical set here is from Modement, an up and coming local brand with Aries Sin as the designer.

We know for a fact that every piece of Cartier’s High Jewellery is made with extraordinary craftsmanship and immaculate attention to details. However, knowing it doesn’t make seeing its execution any less awe-inspiring.
Being invited to see the world’s best jewellers bringing precious stones into life at Cartier’s High Jewellery Workshop is a huge privilege, an eye-opening experience forever emblazoned in my mind. This picture shows the Panthère de Cartier bracelet before diamonds, onyx and emeralds are set, which already has taken the jewellers hundreds of hours to make.

Imagine, the quintessential Parisian spirits encapsulated in the form of beautiful jewellery.
Miniature macarons, sorbets and St. Honoré cakes encrusted with diamonds and black jade, little padlocks of the Lovers’ Bridge made of amethysts and aquamarines attached to delicate mesh necklace, rustling dazzling gold beads on your finger reminiscent of fireworks and the partying scene of Paris… to name just a few of the new additions to Cartier’s Paris Nouvelle Vague collection, which I’m honored to be among the first to preview and share with my dear readers.
