Anatomy of a bag

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - The Cut Style Bible -

Cartier’s lat­est is in­spired by the lux­ury house’s jew­ellery boxes. It’s just the thing to carry your di­a­monds (and phone, keys and purse). Price on re­quest, cartier.co.uk from 15 Nov.

Three ma­jor cities (Paris, Lon­don and New York) are stamped on the front of a mir­ror, hid­den in­side a se­cret pocket. It’s avail­able in four dif­fer­ent colours, all used for Cartier jew­ellery boxes through­out the brand’s his­tory. The eight sides are neatly cut from su­per-soft calf leather. The black vel­vet lin­ing you might ex­pect to find in a jew­ellery case has been swapped for leather here. This shade of red was first adopted by Cartier in the 1920s and is a sym­bol of pas­sion. The golden frieze dec­o­rat­ing the bag echoes mark­ings that have ap­peared on the house’s fa­mous jew­ellery boxes since 1910.
