About The Artist:

Louis Cartier's innovations were supported by the exceptional people with whom he worked. These included Jeanne Toussaint, who conducted the "S" department, a prefiguration of "Les Must de Cartier", which designed original creations in enamel, silver and leather. Louis Cartier and Jacques died within six months of each other in 1942.
In 1968, Robert Hocq, the first maker in the world of gas cigarette lighters, created a luxury lighter which he licensed under the brand name of Cartier. It quickly revolutionized the market.
Four years later, a group of investors brought together by Joseph Kanoui took control of Cartier, Paris and placed Robert Hocq as President. Hocq was fascinated by the past of this fabulous Maison, and became immersed in it, but at the same time brought a breath of youth and modernism to the organization and its new creations.
In 1973, he opened "Les Must de Cartier" in cooperation with Alain Dominique Perrin, who was then in charge of the Cartier lighter, and to whom he gave the responsibility of the development and management. That same year, the first "Must de Cartier" boutique was opened in Biarritz, followed by one in Singapore. Cartier merged in 1981 with "Les Must de Cartier".
