Cartier debuted its new collection - Cactus de Cartier - with a lavish party at Palais De Tokyo, hosted by iconic Spanish actress Rossy de Palma, which featured an impressive art installation of sculptural sand dunes that showcased the new pieces. The collection celebrates the beauty of the cactus, with geometric shapes, cut-outs and bold colours in emeralds, carnelians and brilliant cut diamonds. 

Guests were treated to an evening of food by Michelin-starred chef José Avillez and after dinner, mingled and danced the night away under the Parisian stars until the early morning. 

The 13-piece collection is set to hit stores soon, and you can view it in full in the gallery above, and see the video of the party below.
