Jan Logan Jewellery coming to Queensland

Australian jewellery house Jan Logan has been designing exclusive collections of exquisite jewellery for over twenty years and is excited to announce the opening of their Brisbane boutique, in the heart of the city and on the Gold Coast at the iconic Pacific Fair.

Opening mid-March in Brisbane and May on the Gold Coast, the boutiques will herald the arrival of Jan Logan in Queensland. Conceptualised by of-the-moment, interior architect George Livissianis, the boutiques are a vision of luxury and refinement with contemporary features throughout. The multi-award winning Livissianis is noted for his minimalist approach and unique design perspective.

Logan’s origins trace back to humble beginnings in North Western New South Wales. At the age of 50, Logan learnt her trade working for a jeweller while taking care of her three young sons. During this time, she developed a love for design and began hosting her own jewellery shows across the country, before opening her first Jan Logan store in Sydney’s Double Bay in 1989.

Jan Logan is an international brand renowned for its elegant and timeless pieces. Australian and international celebrities including Naomi Watts, Jennifer Lopez, and Joan Chen, have had pieces created for their personal use. Offering an unparalleled service experience, the Jan Logan Brisbane and Gold Coast boutique teams look forward to welcoming visitors and surpassing their expectations.

Cartier Brisbane Launch

Cartier Brisbane Launch

Last night, Cartier officially stamped its presence on the Brisbane landscape with a style and an elegance synonymous to the name Cartier.

 

Guests arrived at the boutique that sits pride of place on the corner of Elizabeth and Edward streets and discovered the two storey heritage building flooded in a glorious red glow, a homage to the iconic Cartier red box. Bellboys were positioned along the red carpet welcoming guests and bringing a flair, style and elegance to the start of the evening. Once inside the boutique guests admired the glimmer of precious gems, discovered iconic watch designs and movements and appreciated the iconographies that made reference to the Maison’s rich heritage with modern aesthetic sensibilities.

 

Show piece of the evening, the stunning Boreale bracelet was exhibited for the first time in Australia, flown in from Paris the previous day. The exceptional 42.91 Australian black opal is set within a constellation of sapphire, emerald and diamond beads. Guests were marveled by the exquisite craftsmanship achieved in the Maison’s historical Parisian high jewellery ateliers.

 

After an official welcome from Gregoire Blanche, Cartier’s Regional Director for South East Asia, Australia and New Zealand, guests were driven in style to a secret dinner location to enjoy a celebratory evening. The Lightspace in Fortitude Valley was bathed in Cartier red light and transformed into a chic, understated and elegant dinner space.

 

The long dining tables, bespoke creations custom made for Cartier, were contemporary sleek, their finish accented by inset golden brushed metal runners that reminded the soft bronze interior tones of the boutique.  From above the crystal chandelier encased in a gilt cage wowed while rich red florals, floating candles and gold cutlery added elements of distinction and warmth. An exquisite four course gala dinner was served with matching wines and the renowned Cuvee Louise champagne imbued with flavors that delicately balanced the poached lobster and lamb dishes and ending with a chocolate and caramel opera gateaux. The 150 guests enjoyed a special harpist performance by Jake Meadows and once seated Australian music curator, Johnny Seymour filled the air with a soundtrack that embraced touches of contemporary French chic and flair.

 

Several surprises punctuated the evening. At the beginning of the dinner, the Maison’s celebrated short film L’Odyssée de Cartier directed by French filmaker Bruno Aveillan, appeared out of the darkness.  The cinema epic narrates the Maison’s history, its artistic influences and universal inspirations. The powerful panther, who holds the lead role mesmerized the guests with its legendary beauty. As the evening progressed, the lights dimmed and one of Australia’s leading dance companies, Expressions Dance Company, dressed by Australian designer Gail Sorronda, performed highly artistic and captivating romantic dance pieces, created especially to celebrate the Brisbane official launch. Shadows from the performers were cast across the exposed brick walls and the dramatic choreography transported the guests with its ethereal flavour.

 

It was indeed an evening of opulence and elegance and firmly stamped Cartier’s arrival into Brisbane.
