The award-winning film director has been appointed as an official ‘friend’ of the luxury jewellery house
Cartier has exclusively revealed to Bazaar that the award-winning film director Sofia Coppola is to take on a formal position as a ‘friend’ to the jewellery house.
Coppola, who appears in a series of portraits wearing the latest model of the Clé de Cartier watch, is a longstanding devotee of the luxury jewellery brand: she owns, among other pieces, a Cartier wedding ring, a watch, various bracelets and a ‘Panther’ ring given to her by her husband.
“Cartier has playfulness and they have pieces that come apart and turn into other things. There’s something fun about discovering that,” Coppola told us. “A great Cartier piece has its own story.”
Sofia Carmina Coppola is an American screenwriter, director, producer and actress. In 2003, she received the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the comedy-drama Lost in Translation, and became the third woman to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director.
