The Paloma Collection is a resort collection for Cartier inspired by a young french woman's summer in the french riviera. The story derives from the french novel The Elegance of the Hedgehog and the main character, Paloma Josse. I imagined how that girl would grow up to be like and what her life outside of Paris would be. Cartier is known for romance and passion, and I imagine a summer on the french riviera would have that same effect. The jewelry was inspired by the rich red colors that Cartier is known for and the fluidity on the form itself was inspired by the nature of the relaxation.
