A series of black and white portraits by renowned British photographer Mary McCartney are projected on a floor to ceiling screen, for a fully immersive experience. Actor Vanessa Kirby is seen wearing her Juste Un Clou bracelet, whilst boxer Ramla Ali models her Panthère watch and Mary McCartney is seen with her Love bracelet in a self-portrait. Other friends of the Maison include milliner Stephen Jones OBE, actor Emma Corrin, director and actor David Oyelowo OBE amongst others.

Studio 7 by Cartier brings to life a new chapter of Cartier stories in Gallery 4 – ENCOUNTERS – a dynamic and evolving exhibition space where select portraits taken in the Cartier Studio are displayed in a mosaic of digital screens. Unique print out portrait photographs will be printed in black and white for guests, a keepsake for years to come.

This was also promoted via a article in Harper’s Bazaar which is now on the gallery as well.
