Cartier managing director Laurent Feniou loves a stroll down the King’s Road and the village feel of Pavilion Road

Tell us about Cartier’s Over The Rainbow initiative?

It was launched on May 1 2020, an artwork challenge inviting clients, employees and friends of the Maison to create their very own rainbow interpretation, a symbol of hope in support of the NHS. The creative challenge was in parallel to Cartier’s monetary donation to the NHS.

Place to shop in Chelsea?

I love walking down the King’s Road – it is such a dynamic and vibrant area with new stores emerging all the time. I will stop by Paul for a croissant and enjoy trying coffee from different places. The renovation of Pavilion Road has transformed the Sloane Street experience, giving it a real village feel with a number of incredible artisan food shops.

Piece from Cartier’s 2020 launches?

The new Pasha de Cartier, an iconic timepiece from the 1980s.

Restaurant to look forward to dining at again?

The Ivy Chelsea Garden – sitting in their quintessentially British outdoor garden and La Famiglia for delicious Italian food.

Holiday destination?

I recently gained British citizenship, which I am very proud of. Though for me, there is no place like home in the south of France, where I am yearning to return to see my parents in Languedoc Roussillon. It is a beautiful region near the Spanish border with many small villages.

Chelsea memory?

Both my sons attended Hill House School from reception to secondary school, so I have very fond memories of our daily school runs. It is an incredible institution – their ethos is second to none and the annual End of Year Sports Day in the Duke of York Square was always such a fun day for all.
