Not many brands could motivate me into going in a garage by night – but Cartier did. To celebrate the new Juste un Clou and Ecrou de Cartier collections, the brand held a themed design exhibition, named When the Ordinary becomes Precious, during the Salone Del Mobile in Milan, and invited Charles and I to take part in this dazzling event. This is how I ended up wearing high-heels and a red carpet dress in a garage – however, my shiny guipure did not find itself too showy, as the whole garage setting was golden. Golden walls, mechanics, tools and of course nails&nuts – the Clou and Ecrou that were the stars of the night, all bright and declined in several models in the middle of this exquisite location. The highlight of the night? I’m torn between the industrial-meets-opulent golden car suspended in the air in the middle of the room (I mean, my inner Russian diva was jubilating) and the performance of the French-Venezualan-Cuban duo IBEYI that truly rocked the party.
