It's back to the future for Cartier. The jeweller refashioned something old - its famous Trinity collection - into something new on Tuesday afternoon at the Four Seasons, while introducing brand image celebrities Shu Qi (left) and Sylvia Chang Ai-chia. Mainland actor Chen Kun was also named a brand ambassador, but wasn't in town for the event. The celebs were sporting newer versions of Cartier's three-band baubles, which first appeared in 1920. The tri-numeral theme was evident all over the place - from each star featured in a set of three photos to a box of three mini-Cartier champagne bottles given to some guests as souvenirs. For Shu, this kind of promo work is obviously routine. 'I'm on holiday right now,' she claimed when asked about the new films she is working on. Translation: she's been offered nothing lately. As for the symbolic bands representing love-friendship-family, Shu sounded like a cynical old maid. 'I believe in love at first sight but I don't think it will ever happen to me. I'm not a teenager any more. For me, relationships now must be built on accepting your partner's lifestyle and personality.' Veteran director Chang seemed most comfortable discussing her recent aid trip to Africa. 'I went to Ethiopia 16 years ago during the famine. I decided to go back in February to see how the country is rebuilding with international aid. The people there still live very basic lives but what I found heart-warming is the Ethiopians seem very content with their simple life.' So, happiness doesn't come from fancy jewellery boxes?
