The glimmer of gold ribbon laced with wire. Under and over, under and over. Considered yet spontaneous, sublime in its inconsistencies. An embodiment of Cartier’s design philosophy – making the ordinary extraordinary – Sydney-based weaver and muse Poppy Kural turned an Australian staple, the beach hat, into a piece to be treasured. What once was an inanimate object is now a living, breathing work of art, shimmering under the Australian sun.
In celebration of the collaboration and as a tribute to Cartier’s Juste un Clou collection, we chased the light to the brink of the ocean, and against the natural beauty of Sydney’s shoreline captured the custom piece in all of its unpredictable perfection.
