For almost 170 years, Cartier has been synonymous with jewellery and watches. Be it the Love bracelets, the Trinity collection, the Juste un Clou and Écrou de Cartier bracelets, or the Tank or Baignoire watch, with its beautiful craftsmanship, the French luxury maison has made a place for itself in the precious accessories firmament.
The brand is now taking another leap with its introduction of the Guirlande de Cartier bag. Taking hints from the jewellery bags of the 1910s and some of its most iconic creations from the 1960s, Guirlande de Cartier is all set to become this season’s most coveted bag. It personifies the very essence of the brand, featuring a formidable form with eight clean-cut facets carved into its luxurious, supple calfskin, as a nod to Cartier’s jewellery heritage.
Stamped with the brand’s signature gold wreath, the hues of the Cartier’s cases – red, green, black, and camel – are the colour palette of the collection. It reminds one of the maison’s signature box motifs in the 18th century. The attention to detail can also be seen inside – the bag is divided into two inner compartments and a signature pocket with removable mirror. It comes with an adjustable and a detachable sling. The set of bags is finished off with an exquisite edition of a miniature bag in patent crocodile.
