First edition of this lavish catalogue of products from the 'Les Must de Cartier' range. Publisher's original faux leather, stamped in blind to the upper board, titles in gilt to the spine. Gold metal corner clasps. All edges gilt. Housed in the original leopard patterned slipcase. Illustrated in colour and black and white throughout. A fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps.
Between the gold-embossed pages of this decadent and amusing volume, you'll find the wall-to-wall monogrammed carpeting, lacquered furniture, tinted glass, panther draperies and mirrors reflecting the faces of celebrities that represented the era of the 1970s and 1980s at the height of its glory. Nineteen sixty-eight, Cartier enflamed hearts and luxury markets by creating a lighter that landed with the impact of a bomb – "Les Must" de Cartier saw the light of day. Existing somewhere between tradition and modernity, Cartier's lighters, pens, watches, glasses, jewellery, leather goods and perfume engulfed the world. Protected by a panther-skin slipcase, this limited-edition volume invites you to celebrate every new "must".
