Scottsdale Fashion Square has yet another high end, high fashion addition to its extensive directory. Cartier, the premier international luxury goods company, has recently relocated its Phoenix boutique at Biltmore Fashion Park to this world-class shopping center, and has expanded its walls. The boutique’s new design, which opened to the public on Dec. 18, has combined traditional and modern elements and has more than doubled in size.
The store features a new concept designed by the renowned Paris-based architect Bruno Moinard and executed by Barteluce Architects & Associates. The new boutique is decorated with oak paneling in a “muted palette” creating a luxurious and contemporary feel. Glass display fixtures trimmed with statutory bronze, and oak wood floors can be found throughout the boutique. The total size has increased from 1,836 sq.-ft. to 3,669 sq.-ft, in order to accommodate a broader variety of pieces from the various collections.
Cartier has promised to continue to offer extraordinary, one-of-a-kind Cartier designs as well as signature jewelry collections from Trinity, Panthère de Cartier, Love and Pasha de Cartier. The new watch salon carries a large selection of Cartier timepieces in the US, including the new Ballon Bleu de Cartier collection. The boutique also offers a much wider selection of engagement rings and bridal jewelry in the new bridal salon and a full range of accessories for men and women in a unique accessories environment.
Cartier doesn’t only market jewelry. It has a broad range of luxury products including watches, eyewear, fragrance, writing instruments, lighters, leather goods and scarves. In North America, there are 36 stores, including two in Canada. “Founded in 1847, the House of Cartier has long been identified with quality, prestige and history and has served as crown jeweler to 19 royal houses.”
