Commenting on this important exhibition that was initially presented at MAD Paris earlier this year, Francesca Cartier Brickell , author of ‘The Cartiers’ (2020) said to Moralmoda Magazine,

'The Persian style,’ my grandfather Jean-Jacques Cartier once explained to me, ‘was the purest influence on the Cartier style.’ As a child, he had missed his parents on their many trips to India and the Middle East, but those long voyages abroad had given his father, Jacques, the seeds of inspiration to create a new style of jewellery. Pencil drawings of their surroundings –temples, mosques, carvings, motifs – scribbled in his travel diaries would later be transformed into clocks, vanity cases and brooches, while suitcases filled with exotic objects–rugs, paintings, sculptures, fabrics – would inspire teams of designers back home."
