Cartier’s New Guirlande De Cartier Bag

If you’re someone who follows fashion bloggers, you’d have seen the new Guirlande De Cartier bag on Aimee Song . Cartier‘s latest bag is also referred to affectionally, as the Cartier Box Bag, simply because that’s what it’s modelled after: the Maison’s signature octagonal red jewellery box, with the gold garland borders hot-stamped onto it.

Made of soft calf leather, the bag version comes with a top handle and stamped with the same gold frieze surrounding the bag, with a top flap closure that, also looks like the jewellery box itself; a box on box, if you will. Lined in black calfskin leather, and equipped with a detachable long leather strap, this structured bag contains a hidden (but removable) element: it comes with a mirror stored inside a secret slot, with (Paris, London and New York), stamped onto it.

Available in black, green (which looks slightly more teal-like in hue), and of course, the iconic red, the Guirlande De Cartier comes in 3 sizes – Medium, Small, and Mini (which can fit an iPhone XS Max!). Red is usually my least favourite colour, but in this case, it gets my vote simply because it’s a tribute and testament to Cartier’s fine jewellery heritage. Keep your eyes peeled because the Guirlande De Cartier bags will be dropping in stores in March!
