Tokujin Yoshioka: 'moon fragments' in 'story of... memories of CARTIER creations'

The historical CARTIER jewelry exhibition at the Tokyo national museum opened last week and will run until may 31th, 2009.

Tokujin Yoshioka designed two perfume bottles 'moon fragments' for CARTIER which take the form of a disk and a sphere shape. both are included in the show.

'The perfume bottle named 'moon fragment' is a piece that I designed based on my vision of the future of CARTIER, and was created through a fusion with the 'story of...' fragrance that was specially blended by a CARTIER paris perfumer. A single diamond, sparkling inside the bottle that itself emits a truly moon like transparency, adds a poignant fragrance to the memories of CARTIER’S history. I hope that the stories of CARTIER, the memories of the viewers, and the world of fantasy suggested, along with this fragrance, will be engraved on people’s minds, while, with the memories of eternal beauty in their hearts, the 'stories' of this exhibition will be woven into the future'- Tokujin Yoshioka.
