FEBRUARY 22, 2019 - Following the Chinese New Year, Cartier opened the doors of its new boutique to reveal a complete transformation. Linking tradition and modernity, this 333 square-meter jewel is the latest must-visit luxury boutique at T Galleria by DFS, Macau Shoppes at Four Seasons.
Conceived by famed Parisian artist and interior designer Bruno Moinard and bearing the Maison’s latest architectural concept, the Cartier Macau Four Seasons Boutique is a shining display of uniqueness and exclusive refinement. Its façade presents a graphic design, featuring bold architectural elements – playing with light, rectangular shapes and see-through contrasts. The interior emphasises the strong codes and emblems of the Maison, such as the Panther and other historical iconography, set with décor displaying subtle shades of champagne and organic details that exude contemporary chic and elegance. The curled walls of the rectangular space create an intimate cocoon. An activation pad takes a center role, bringing the boutique to life for new launches and exciting gatherings. Specific to this boutique within one of Macau’s most vibrant precincts, a dedicated masculine area is designed to cater to a discerning gaming clientele.
The Four Seasons boutique has been designed with flexibility in mind, allowing for temporary events and seasonal animations. Following the opening, a series of activations in celebration of the new boutique and in the spirit of Cartier will take place, from a spectacular light show on the façade to ephemeral installations including an exclusive event night. Modern, magnetic and refined, Cartier is back.
“DFS is proud to once again join with our longstanding partner, Cartier, in transforming their retail space to new heights – providing the most luxurious shopping experience for the modern customer,” said Matthew Green, DFS Group Senior Vice President, Watches and Jewelry. “This exciting opening is especially fortuitous as it coincides with the beginning of the Lunar New Year, offering our discerning travelers the chance to experience an impeccable marriage of modernity and tradition.”
"As part of our durable partnership with DFS, this successful renovation participates in shaping the new vision for Cartier's retail worldwide. While Macau Four Seasons is the second boutique within the Asian Travel Retail network to endorse the new retail concept of the Maison, further renovations are to be expected within the next two years in order to inspire and reach a broader and ever-changing audience," said Cecile Naour, Cartier International Travel Retail Director.
Launching in sync with the grand refurbishment is the Guirlande de Cartier collection. Cartier takes its iconic red case into new heights. More than a bag, Guirlande de Cartier is the essence of Cartier, infused in the form of eight clean-cut facets carved from luxuriant calfskin stamped with a gold frieze. Three sizes are available for a single design, to be further enriched in Spring 2019. The collection is presented at Cartier’s boutique at T Galleria by DFS, Macau Shoppes at Four Seasons as part of a very selective network.
The new boutique was opened in grand style at a luxurious event on February 21 that attracted numerous fans of the world-renowned Maison.
