Cartier Jeanne Toussaint Fine Leather Goods Collection


cartier_jeanne-toussaint-flg-collection1You could say I’m biased, but having already previewed Cartier’s full collection ofJeanne Toussaint Fine Leather Goods way back in February in Paris, there’s nothing I don’t personally adore with the exception of a few details, but that’s just me being me. All in all, it’s a great collection that’s nothing like you’ve ever seen Cartier do before in terms of bags, and that’s saying a lot especially if you’re familiar with their existing offerings.

cartier_jeanne-toussaint-flg-collection3But that’s all in the past. Which in some serendipitous way is how Creative Director of Accessories Marlin Yuson drew inspiration from this collection. Paying homage to a great lady who was an important creative force at Cartier for many years, you’ll see many subtle details from the archives: from jewelled clasps to the design of the chain sling incorporated into contemporary styles that are not only beautiful, but are also pretty functional as well.

The collection isn’t a huge one either, just 3 distinct styles that come in various sizes with emphasis on the quality of the leather as well as the finer details (which I’m fussy about), from the stitching (I’ve checked) to the way the clasps open and close (I’ve checked those too) to how everything feels and works (I tried them all out, weighing each bag mentally, posing with the bags in the mirror, much to the amusement of everyone related to the collection who was at 13 Rue de la Paix that day).

There is the Tote Bag, which comes in 3 variations, one with an additional zip compartment at the bottom, great for swopping out your heels for flats after a long day day at work, the regular Tote Bag that’s great for work, as well as the Mini Tote Bagthat’s just 29.5 tall cm by 21.5 cm wide and as cute as a button.

Then there’s the Chain Bag, the elegant work companion that you can wear 3 ways. Featuring a front flap with killer detailing as far as the hardware is concerned, this is the one that looks set to be a classic in her own right.

Last but not least, my personal favourite and the one bag boys can also pull off confidently from the Jeanne Toussaint FLG collection. Simply known as the Asymmetric Clutch, I like to think of it as the kind of clutch old men bring to casinos but loads more contemporary and stylish, and one that won’t look out of place most anywhere.

I could go on and on, but because I’m not a fan of posts that go on forever and a day (there will be more updates as far as the individual styles are concerned, so hang in there), I’ll just leave you with one of the new videos celebrating this collection, and a reminder to make a mental note to visit Cartier soon where the bags are already available. Or you could just head online and check out the full range (and their respective prices) for yourself.

Fendi Mini By The Way Leather Bag



You are going to love this. You see, the Fendi By The Way Bag was fine – it presents a new way of carrying a shoulder bag by sliding your hands through the extra strap, and you’re good to go. But the Fendi Mini By The Way Bag goes even a step further, it features a magnificent crocodile tale embellished with Swarovski crystals.

And we haven’t even mentioned that it was a size smaller. Mini is mini, but this one is really tiny, you can almost carry it with just one hand. It comes with a detachable leather shoulder strap that can be adjusted. The bag opens with a zip closure on the top and it features a deluxe leather tag.

The interior is smaller, it can store your essentials and a little more – with three compartments and one is with a zipper. It also comes with an internal patch pocket for extra storage.

Entirely made from calfskin, measuring 13 x 19 x 9 (H x W x D) cm..

Bottega Veneta Micro Intreccio Leather Bag



What are you looking for in a bag?

I love handbags designed with a meaning or a story behind it, because that makes a bag interesting. I also love handbags that are crafted with attention to details, which makes it feel personal and valuable.

The new Bottega Veneta is made with love and premium quality materials that add a luxurious edge to this compact Chamois Bag. The appearance cannot be replicated, it’s bold, casual and chic at the same time.

Inspired by a design from Bottega Veneta archives, the compact lines have been offset by precious Karung Lux and the hand-woven Microintrecciato accents and closure in Capra liquid leather.

The interior is finished with pure nappa leather with one main compartment, a practical zip pocket and a brunito-finish chain and shoulder strap.

The leathers used are calfskin, lambskin and karung, measuring 4.3’ x 7.8’ x 11.7’ inches (D x H x W), priced at 1850 euro via Bottega Veneta boutiques.
