Cartier’s Clutch Hit
Cartier might be better known these days for its Love bracelet or its Tank Anglaise watch, but back in the twenties, the French label had another highly coveted signature: its elegant evening bags, encrusted with jewels. The brand recently revisited its archives, and for the first time in ages, Cartier has just issued a new collection of lacquer clutches encrusted with gems inspired by those original bags. The clutches, made of crocodile skin, lacquer, and python and paved with diamonds, recently caught the discerning eye of our market director, Marina Larroude. Here, a first look at the bags ($1,500-$7,100) before they launch next month.
