In a bid to align with fashionable fields, Cartier has confirmed that Oscar-winning film director and style icon, Sofia Coppola, is an official friend of the coveted brand. To celebrate the collaboration Coppola, who fronts an off-duty inspired campaign for the luxury jewellery house, is photographed wearing the latest Clé de Cartier model.

Off camera, Coppola continues her love affair with the French luxury jeweller. The film director's wedding ring is Cartier, as is her watch — the Mini Tank — which she pairs with the Menott, the Nouvelle Vague, Trinity and Love bracelets. "I have always loved Cartier, it represents the height of beauty, heritage, craftsmanship and history," says Coppola. "Cartier is versatile. They have everyday pieces and then they have beautiful creations for the evening." Coppola's husband once gave her the Cartier Panther ring too.
