Cartier High Jewelry 23
For the runway show of Cartier's new High Jewelry collection 2023, Lulu Helbaek & Simone Ferrari (LuSi) were tasked with creating a striking installation and fashion show within one of Italy's iconic Renaissance locations: the Salone dei Cinquecento in Palazzo Vecchio, Florence.
LuSi aimed to bring their proposed concept of "magnifying Beauty" to life through a physical representation. Thus designing a series of lenses that interacted with light, video, and the performative elements of the fashion show.
The Fashion Show of Cartier's latest collection "Le voyage Recommencé" transported the guest into a world where beauty is amplified. Lenses unveil dreamlike dimensions, and emotions come alive, acting as gateways to fantastical worlds inspired by Cartier's art.
