Introducing the Guirlande de Cartier, inspired by Cartier’s iconic red jewelry boxes and the art of leather making. The spirit of the maison takes shape in this bag made of thick, supple calfskin cut into a geometric form of eight facets outlined with a golden frieze.
Cartier first launched jewelry bags in the 1910s and clutches in the 1960s. The Guirlande de Cartier collection showcases three sizes — mini, small, and medium — in four different colorways, including red, black, green, and camel. The handbag features an adjustable and detachable strap and can be worn over the shoulder or as a clutch.
The bag was first made available exclusively at the three Cartier flagship stores: 13 Rue de la Paix in Paris, New Bond Street in London, and 5th Avenue in New York.
In the March 2019 issue of Vogue Arabia, Karen Wazen Bakhazi is seen holding the Guirlande de Cartier bags. Dressed in Dolce & Gabbana, Wazen, and Ana Bella Millinery, the Lebanese fashion blogger carries the red calfskin Cartier bag in style.
