A while back, Cartier hosted a fabulous soirée at The Royal Opera in Stockholm to promote their premiere opening on November 8. They had a VR team on site so we could experience what the shop will look like and it felt contemporary whilst leaving room for the cosier parts of Scandinavian lifestyle. How about “fika” at Cartier, lovelies? 

Cyrille Vigneron, CEO of Cartier was interviewed by lovely Emilia De Poret on stage about where the brand is heading, their core values and their timeless design. On exhibit were some historical and rather mesmerizing Cartier items that had been lent by their owners for this very occasion. I don't think I've ever seen that many diamonds in the same room before. 

It was such a cinderella moment when Ruinart and high heels at the castle turned in to a pumpkin (well, Taxi Stockholm but close enough) that took me home to clean my apartment before my open house the next day. Buying and selling homes is a full time job for sure, lovelies. But I can tell you one thing. Vacuum cleaning and getting your rubber gloves on sure feels more delightful if you´ve been sent home with a miniature bottle of Cartier Champagne. 


Love, Christine Deckert
