Cartier’s ‘The Lush Garden’ opens at The Gardens Mall


Cartier unveils a new boutique at The Gardens Mall with unique Malaysian inflections.

CARTIER’S new boutique at The Gardens Mall – a premium shopping mall in Malaysia’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur synonymous with prestige and luxury, melds classic Malaysian iconography with enduring Cartier signatures to create a stunning work of art.

Inspired by Malaysia’s rich heritage of flora and fauna, the boutique is lovingly referred to as “The Lush Garden” and is the first in the country to feature Cartier’s latest interior design direction carefully curated for a heightened client experience.

Upon entering The Gardens Mall from the Riverview entrance, guests are welcomed by a shimmering golden façade inviting them to discover the wonders of Cartier.

Inside, guests may feast their eyes on the Cartier concept masterfully infused with Malaysian styles throughout the boutique, which spans a total of 409sqm (4402sqft).

The luxury experience begins in the grand foyer where a delicate chandelier made up of falling leaves becomes the heart of the boutique. A majestic floor-to-ceiling mosaic wall made up of 20,000 pieces of hand-cut elements took three artisans over five months to complete and was created using ancestral stone marquetry techniques.

The colourful mosaic depicts two panthers – the Maison’s emblem, surrounded by magnificent foliage in tribute to Malaysia’s vibrant tropical landscape. The graceful creatures rest at the top of a monumental staircase where they oversee the daily affairs of the boutique.

Guests making their way to the left of the Grand Foyer will encounter a sense of masculine elegance subtly invoked by the use of wood panelling. This is carefully balanced out by the lightness of the high-end area, which includes a semi-private alcove for privacy.

The boutique also houses a comfortable VIP lounge that features local touches such as rattan furniture.

Across the boutique, guests may indulge in the romantic surprises awaiting them in the Bridal Area thoughtfully decorated with a backdrop highlighting Malaysia’s national flower – the red Bunga Raya.

The care service area, which was designed to simulate the serene setting of a nature retreat to enhance the overall experience, is but a few steps away – tucked into a relaxing corner fitted with plush furniture.

The continuous theme of nature is seamlessly represented throughout the boutique exemplified by the abstract motifs on the pillars.

The motifs, inspired by oil palm trees, were expertly hand-carved from white plaster by local artists.

“The Lush Garden is a true representation of the Maison’s dedication to embracing the local heritage in each city where it is anchored.

The new boutique marries the richness of Cartier’s DNA with Malaysia’s unique flora and fauna.

Every corner is exquisitely decorated with local touches to create a welcoming, cosy and exceptional client journey,” says Cartier Singapore and Malaysia managing director Anne Yitzhakov.
