16 BLACK PANTHERS, PAGE BOYS By Linden Wilson. Photography Grant Miller. T here were cases of haute joaillerie, mini champagne bottles in Cartier rouge, and party favors tucked into glossy scarlet boxes, but the biggest wow moment from Cartier's Dallas store-opening soirée was a photo booth staged with a life-size black panther statue. The pan- thère de Cartier held court in an opulent tent outside the Highland Park Village boutique, surrounded by guests eager to snap a pic with the feline host. Dapper Cartier page boys in red jackets with snappy gold buttons and caps with the Cartier logo offered cocktails, while New York singer Paul Loren crooned classics from Van Morrison to Frank Sinatra. Inside the 5,200-square-foot store, which opened in September after the closure of Cartier's former location at NorthPark Center, guests clad in their chicest winter wear browsed the Panthère de Cartier, Juste un Clou, Trinity de Cartier, and Cactus de Cartier collections. Timepieces also sparkled in the watch salon — Santos de Cartier, Ballon Bleu de Cartier, Clé de Cartier, and Driver de Cartier. On display were iterations of Cartier's iconic Tank watch, which celebrated its 100th anniversary just as the Highland Park Village boutique opened its doors.
