Cartier is named as the official jeweller for the all-female remake of Ocean's 8
Big jewels headed for the big screen
Thanks to the captivating first trailer released late last year, we know there's a fierce all- female cast of Sandra Bullock, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter and Cate Blanchett (who led a #MeToo march at the Cannes Film Festival), and that the film is centered around the group's attempt to pull off a jewellery heist at the Met Gala.
Now, it's been announced that French luxury fine jeweller Cartier is the exclusive jewellery partner for the film.
In the film, there's a one-of-a-kind necklace that will sit pretty on Daphne Kluger (played by Hathaway), and according to Cartier, the necklace is a tribute to the brand's Creative Director in the '30s who is said to have had a "decisive hand in establishing what has become the house’s stylistic identity."
According to WWD, Arnaud Carrez, Cartier’s International Marketing and Communications Director said: "As a maison, and throughout our history, we cherish our collaborations that bring visionaries together to celebrate individuality, diversity and empower bold and fearless women. Cartier is thrilled to continue its long-standing cinematic legacy. With this film, the New York Cartier Fifth Avenue mansion confirms its identity as a landmark of the city, and the Jeanne Toussaint necklace highlights Cartier’s craftsmanship in jewellery making on the silver screen."
