The bustling Saudi Arabian capital city of Riyadh is currently hosting a special Cartier exhibition. Aptly titled ‘Into the Wild,’ the presentation offers a rare glimpse into the history of the Maison’s legendary Panthère. Staged at Via Riyadh, the Cartier ‘Into the Wild’ exhibition takes visitors on a journey, discovering the evolution of its emblematic motif over the past century. From early renditions of the ferocious feline to modern innovations, visitors can explore the glorious life of the Panthère through four different stages.
Starting with a series of archival sketches, photographs, and videos, guests at the exhibition will be treated to a special tribute to Jeanne Toussaint, Cartier’s Creative Director, from 1933 to 1970. The Cartier ‘Into the Wild’ exhibition in Riyadh features a life-size replica of Ms. Toussaint’s Paris office, brought to life using a stunning projection.
At some point, visitors will find themselves standing in front of three doors, out of which they must choose one to continue their journey through a beautifully patterned corridor. At the end of this passage is a magnificent display of Cartier’s Panthère creations.
“Cartier owes so much of who we are today as a Maison to the visionary force of nature that was Jeanne Toussaint. Our commitment to timeless craftsmanship is unparalleled, and we are thrilled to share our Panthère legacy with our community in Saudi Arabia with this magical exhibit,” said Bruno Carraz, Managing Director of Cartier Saudi Arabia.
Visitors of the exhibition can stop by the Panthère cafe for themed refreshments.
The Cartier ‘Into the Wild’ exhibition is open to the public until February 5.
