Remember the opulent red purse seen all over the social media pages of fashion influencers in 2018? ICYMI, that Instagram-worthy bag is Cartier’s Guirlande de Cartier, inspired by the iconic red case Cartier uses for its jewellery and watches, such as their equally iconic Juste un Clou and Love bracelets, and Baignoire watch.
The box that is now a bag is finally available in Singapore and has been significantly upsized.
The Guirlande de Cartier comes in three sizes (mini, S and M) and is fashioned from a supple calfskin upper and a buttery black calfskin lining. The perimeter of the bag is beautifully adorned with the maison’s signature golden wreath, introduced in the 18th century.
It has two straps – a top handle, and a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap. Functional? Check. Versatile? Check. The mini and S sizes are available in red, black and green, while the M size comes only in black and red.
