Kim Taehyung, popularly known as V from BTS, has been officially announced as the newest global ambassador for the prestigious French luxury jewelry brand, Cartier. With a focus on Cartier’s iconic line, the ‘Panthère de Cartier,’ this collaboration has garnered immense anticipation from fans and luxury enthusiasts around the world, eager to witness the harmonious blend between the global idol and the esteemed brand.
V was chosen as the perfect representative for the ‘Panthère de Cartier’ campaign due to his striking resemblance to the panther—a revered creature known for its intelligence and adaptability. Cartier emphasized that V possesses “the same creative spirit and captivating gaze as the panther.” In the campaign, V showcases breathtaking pieces from the Panthère jewelry collection, including an exquisite diamond ring, a mesmerizing tête-à-tête panther bracelet, and the extraordinary Révélation d’une Panthère watch. His portrayal exudes confidence, perfectly encapsulating the collection’s bold essence.
V’s venture into the realm of luxury endorsements is not unfamiliar territory. Apart from being a global ambassador for the luxury fashion brand CELINE, V, as part of BTS, has also been chosen as the face of another industry titan, Louis Vuitton. By joining the ranks of Cartier’s ambassadors, V finds himself in the esteemed company of other Asian celebrities such as Blackpink’s Jisoo, Chinese actress Gong Li, and Got7’s Jackson Wang. This collaboration not only underscores Cartier’s commitment to embracing diversity but also showcases the brand’s strategy of partnering with influential global talents.
V’s ascent to global stardom has been nothing short of meteoric. Since BTS’s debut in 2013, his magnetic stage presence, distinctive voice, and impeccable fashion sense have made him a standout figure in the entertainment industry. Beyond his performances, V has exhibited his versatility by delving into songwriting, producing chart-topping hits like “4 O’Clock,” “Scenery,” “Winter Bear,” and “Blue & Grey.”
D’Arnaud Carrez, the senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Cartier, expressed the brand’s excitement about the collaboration, stating, “When it came to embodying the allure and aura of the panther, our choice naturally gravitated towards V. He possesses the look and strength of character, a personality whose choices are guided by creativity as a dancer, musician, and art lover, with a style and elegance that are uniquely his own.”
With this new partnership, fans and enthusiasts of luxury can eagerly anticipate a seamless fusion of Cartier’s timeless elegance and V’s contemporary charisma.
