The French luxury label has unveiled two new bags, their first since 2007.
Named after two of the house’s most iconic figures, CARTIER has designed the Jeanne Toussaint bags for women, and the Louis Cartier for men.
Jeanne Toussaint was a bag designer and head of jewelry for the Parisian brand. Pet-named ‘Panther’, Toussaint dreamed up the famous Cartier Panther brooch in the Duchess of Windsor in 1948.
The bag line named after her mixes artisanal techniques with luxurious crocodile skin and leather to devastating effect. There’s a choice of cream, black and bordeaux color schemes.
The Louis Cartier men’s line is named after the grandson of Louis-François Cartier, the brand’s founder. Louis is perhaps best known as the designer of brand’s famed Baignoire and Tortue watches which were introduced in 1912.
The collection in his honor includes a document holder, which comes in a choice black leather outer with a bordeaux lining, or caramel leather with an ebony lining. There’s also a caramel leather weekend bag.
Prices for the women’s bags range from €1700 to €7500, and from €1200 to €3150 for the men’s models.
