Another day, another clutch for you to ogle at. Today’s offering happens to be from Cartier, which has just been launched in Singapore. From their new Jewellery Bags collection, it’s an elegant ensemble of small evening bags and minaudière, each one more opulent than the next.
For starters there’s the minaudière in red lacquer, topped off with a silver and lacquer clasp that’s finished in onyx cabochons. Priced at SGD8850, it’s part-jewellery, part-bag, which also partly explains the price.
Other interesting pieces include this one in calfskin-etched lace that comes with a solid silver and lacquer clasp and chrysophrase cabochons. More tactile (and delicate) than the former, it comes in at SGD6100.
If you’re already in love and want something a tad more ‘entry-level’, then feast your eyes on the minaudière with gold goatskin and a gold-finished lacquer clasp that will set you back by SGD2310. Beautiful keepsakes to add on to your existing Cartier collection of watches and jewellery, these are definitely heirloom pieces that you should hand down to the next generation.
