Is the Luxury Industry Serious About Sustainability?

Edited by

The annual 1.618 event, founded in 2010, was held in Paris this weekend where the focus was on “Sustainable Luxury.” With the luxury industry under mounting pressure to provide transparency and accountability, 1.618 brought together some 40 firms, foundations and innovators to discuss cleaning up luxury’s act.

Take a Journey Through Cartier’s 165 Years in “L’Odyssée de Cartier”

Edited by

It took a crew of 60 people three months to condense Cartier‘s 165-year history into the three-and-a-half minute short film, L’Odyssée de Cartier. The result is a fantastical tale told through the eyes of the jeweler’s spirit animal, the panther. Since the 1930s, the panther has been emblematic of the house of Cartier, thanks to then-creative director Jeanne Toussaint, otherwise affectionately known as La Panthère — Lady Panther. From charging through the Siberian snow, to staring down a giant dragon in China,  riding on the back of the world’s largest elephant through India, hitching a flight on an early 19th century flying contraption to Paris and finally canoodling with Shalom Harlow, the panther takes us on a journey beautifully rendered by director Bruno Aveillan. Strap yourself in and get ready for a magical trip around the world and through the ages with L’Odyssée de Cartier.

Elizabeth Taylor Jewelry Auction Sets World Record, Selling for Over $115 Million

Edited by

Leave it to Elizabeth Taylor to go out with a bang worthy of a movie star. The auction of Taylor’s — “impressive” seems to be a gross understatement at this point — epic jewelry collection was expected to raise $30 million, but by the time the last bid was placed, the 80 lots fetched a staggering $115,932,000, drop-kicking the record for a private collection previously established by the Duchess of Windsor‘s $50,281,887 auction in 1987.
