For the longest time, Goyard’s Monte-Carlo PM Clutch was a staple wallet-on-strap format loved for its trunk-inspired detailing. The bracket corners, trunk rivets and wooden rod came together beautifully, and when combined with the iconic Goyardine canvas, paid homage to the maison’s heritage.
While the elongated (25 cm by 14.5 cm) format was lauded for its ability to hold your mobile phones and then some, Goyard fans were on the lookout for a smaller size that was slightly more fuss-free for the everyday. In comes the unisex Monte-Carlo Mini Case, a compact size measuring 19 cm by 10 cm that makes it a lightweight alternative to the clutch.
The trunk-inspired elements remain a prominent feature on the Monte-Carlo Mini Case, and Goyard has added two extra leather loops at the back so you can convert it into a crossbody bag if you prefer. Alternatively, wear it as a belt bag, or simply use it as a chic SLG for your cards and cash.
The Monte-Carlo Mini Case comes in a wide variety of colours. Classic options in Black and Black/Tan are priced at SGD1620, while special hues such as Green, Grey and Navy are priced lightly higher at SGD2030 each.
Each case is sold as-is, and Goyard has a neat selection of straps available from SGD550 to SGD600 as well. Keen to get one? Head down to Goyard’s standalone boutique in Takashimaya Shopping Centre to take a look right now.
