Kering Eyewear and Maison Cartier have revealed details of the Cartier Eyewear Spring Summer 2018 collection, which marks the official beginning of their new agreement. The collections were presented during Silmo in Paris (October 6-9, 2017).
Effective January 1, 2018, the partnership will see leading luxury groups Kering and Richement bringing their operations together to create a stronger platform for the product development, manufacturing and worldwide distribution of Cartier Eyewear. Under the terms of the agreement, Richemont has acquired a minority stake in Kering Eyewear, which has also integrated the Manufacture Cartier Lunettes entity in Sucy-en-Brie, France.
A dedicated team at Kering Eyewear will ensure the new Cartier Eyewear collection preserves the identity of the Maison Cartier with a contemporary aesthetic.
This initial presentation consists of three main collections – Santos de Cartier, C de Cartier and Panthère de Cartier – which the companies say embody the brand’s exclusive heritage and combine emblematic features with a contemporary design approach.
