While French luxury house Cartier’s forte doesn’t lie exactly with leather bags, credit must be given when credit is due. In other words, when an unexpected little wonder like this appears, a quick piece to laud it is certainly a must. Known as the Must de Cartier Nano Carnassière Bag (yes, the name is quite a mouthful), it’s definitely vintage-inspired, with the Must de Cartier range being one of their classic timeless collections. Finished with their signature large double C medallion right in front, that’s not the only surprise that’s related to this piece.
Besides being an extremely handsome bag, the nano size is also right on trend, with the 19 cm by 15 cm bag the perfect size to hold just enough for any day out. Then there’s the hardware details, from the hardware-inspired studs to the elegant-shaped clasp that’s as perfect as it gets.
Crafted entirely of calfskin leather (and lined with lambskin leather), there’s also a removable mirror and a flap pocket on the interior. The most unbelievable thing in this day and age? That the fact it only retails for SGD1570 apiece is either a miracle or a mistake, considering the amount of detailing and finishes that went into each bag. Yes, it might be small, but where else would you find a full leather bag today from a French luxury house at this price?
But the best, best bit has to got to be that it comes in not 1, not 2, but 3 different colours for your choosing, from classic Black to iconic Burgundy and even a subtle neutral in Taupe Grey. In other words, for a bag that’s built to last the seasons at a fun size and an even better price, it’s definitely a keeper.
