To Cartier, with Love

Last evening I attended the Cartier relaunch of the Juste un Clou. The highlight of the event, held in the Cartier Mansion, was the exhibition of jewelry, sketches and an interactive wall of images honoring Aldo Cipullo, the Roman jeweler who created the Juste un Clou and the iconic Love bracelet (through May 8th). I wear the Love bracelet on a leather strap above everyday.

While getting ready, I decided this would be the perfect time to test drive carrying a large wallet in lieu of a handbag. Fortunately, I had a car, so I left the big bits behind, but it was really freeing to not have a cumbersome bag at a packed event (btw Charlotte Casiraghi is even more beautiful in person). I took the Valentino below and it held my phone, keys and lipstick.

  • Sabrina, I think there are two types of defining montmes. The first is as you describe: a place or an experience that changes you, whether you know it right away. Then there’s that tipping point moment, where things you’ve done and thought about come together with an experience and together they change you.I think both of these happened in Africa for you. You had experiences with your people photography that you didn’t expect and the result was a new definition of you as a people photographer . However, I think you also had montmes where your thinking and seeing shifted to a new level, even though you had done those same things before—and now, you can no longer return to what you were before the trip. (I hope I’m making sense here.)Another great post. Keep them coming!(Oh, and Krista? As of next Monday, Sabrina won’t need to borrow your 17-35 any more )
