Chitose Abe, the designer of Sacai, and French jewellery maison Cartier have come together to collaborate on the jewellery brand’s iconic Trinity collection. Comprising of six new limited-edition pieces, the collaboration gives a twist to the timeless masterpiece.
Known for her experimental designs, Abe’s work at Sacai melds athleticism with high fashion. The Japanese designer's interpretation of Cartier’s Trinity collection, which was revealed at the Sacai Fall/Winter 2022 fashion show in Paris, ties together individuality and multi-functionality. Both are elements that we've seen in Abe's previous collaborations with Dior, Nike and more.
Abe's Trinity collection consists of six jewellery pieces in all, including two rings, one bracelet, one necklace and two earrings. In her reimagining of the iconic Cartier ring, two of the original intertwined bands are now extended so that the bands can be worn over multiple fingers.
That twist in shape and proportion is also seen in another striking creation: a ring that can also be worn as an earring. It features one extended band that can be worn like an ear cuff.
The limited-edition pieces, each made in the Cartier creation studio, are crafted using 18-karat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold.

“I’m enchanted by the story of Trinity, which sits so close to my personal values and those that I aspire to for Sacai—the principles of love, fidelity, and friendship, which I consider to be more important than anything else in life and values by which I’ve tried to lead my life and my work,” said Abe of the collaboration.
The Trinity for Chitose Abe of Sacai collection will launch in Japan this summer, and will later be available in Paris, London, New York and Seoul in the fall.
