Cartier’s Double C de Cartier ticked all the right boxes when it first launched in a sleek silhouette adorned with the beautiful enamel logo clasp. The satin-like calfskin leather and elegant boxy structure made this a charming handbag from the get-go, with a myriad of colours that were all perfect for the contemporary woman.
While the original came with an adjustable leather strap, Cartier has launched a new style that comes with a chic chain strap that’s a tad dressier option for both day and night. Not only does it add more visual interest when the bag is worn, the faceted-link chain is also long enough to be worn casually across the body or over the shoulder, giving you a beautiful bag from every angle.
You can also use the Double C de Cartier as a clutch (yes, the chain/leather sling can be removed), making it a versatile option indeed. Other tweaks include an elongated profile (lengthened sideways), which means that you can hold more for less, keeping all contents within view when the flap is lifted.
Aside from the new shape, you can also look forward to two new colours that will officially be joining the Double C de Cartier family, namely Capri Blue and Mint Green, which will be made available alongside existing options like Black, Powder Pink and Red Cherry. Set to launch from September 2021, the Double C de Cartier will come in mini and small sizes that are priced at SGD3650 and SGD4050 respectively.
