A new jewelry pop-up will leave Seattleites with a twinkle in their eye this weekend. Cartier is bringing The Precious Garage, the brand’s traveling pop-up experience, to the Fremont Mischief distillery on Saturday and Sunday where visitors will experience the relationship between form and mechanics in a gold-laden and hyper-designed shipping container.
The concept debuted at the Cartier Fifth Avenue Mansion ahead of September’s New York Fashion Week and the Emerald City is the last stop of the tour. The Parisian luxury house enlisted New York-based creative director and visual artist Desi Santiago to design the experience; it begins by bringing visitors into a dark space that leads into an area where they’ll discover garage-inspired tools, along with some jewelry. Those in need of a little extra sparkle will have an opportunity to try on and buy items from the new Juste un Clou and Écrou de Cartier collections featured in the space.
Introduced in the 1970s, the Juste un Clou “nail” bracelet has become one of the house’s most iconic and coveted pieces. At The Precious Garage, Cartier will reintroduce the iconic design with a slimmer look in fashionable shades of yellow and rose gold along with other dazzling pieces.
The Precious Garage is open to the public on Saturday, September 29 from noon – 5 p.m. and Sunday, September 30 from noon – 3 p.m. at Fremont Mischief (132 N Canal Street).
