Cartier Double C: when the codes of Place Vendôme’s most royal jeweler are turned into a most desirable bag.
Cartier Double C: Purity and Refinement
Cartier‘s new bag collection holds the promise of being elevated to the rank of icon. it must be said that the very essence of the “King of Jewelers and Jeweler of Kings” is distilled with the grace that we know of it.
If Cartier is -first of all- the name that one of history’s most beautiful adornment bears (a story which can be read in this beautiful book), it’s also the Place Vendôme legend that has chiseled the piece of dreams in an exquisite leather, and a timeless shape.
This year’s Cartier’s Double C bag collection is enriched with two new models; two models with pictorial lines, with chic and savant simplicity, pricked with a chain of jewels. “It’s the perk of the Double C’s new versions.”, notes the house. Two models thus completed with new colors, as tender as they are mesmerising: Capri Blue and Mint Green.
In this small design, egonomical and resolutely parisian, we can find Cartier’s director of leather and accesories’, Marin Huson, influence.
The lacquered Double C fastening is a reference to the wax seal that was once used to seal the jeweler’s parcels. Thus, for the first time, the Cartier logo is as aesthetic as it is purposeful, through this fastening system.
A wink to Cariter’s minaudières, whose most beautiful instances are shown in these beautiful books, Cartier’s golden chain Double C is superbly chic; indeed the bag gains a fair amount of sheen and marvelousness. However, the Double C has not forgotten its primary function: with its three interior compartments, and its signature moveable mirror pocket, it accompanies women in the slightest of moments.
Conceived to be worn across the body or over the shoulder, thanks to its adjustable chain, the Double C’s punctuated silhouette is sealed with the typical self-assurance of such a high-end jeweler.
And since luxury is also established through the ability to respect both heritage and environment, it’s in the European Union that Cartier has sourced every single component of this impeccable bag: “A priority that assures the traceablity of the leather’s origin, the respect of human resources at all steps of the manufacturing process and that of the environment in the materials’ production.”, explains Cartier.
