Cartier Launches New Bag Line

By Paul Joseph

Iconic French luxury brand Cartier, better known for its jewellery and watches, has launched a new line of bag for the first time in seven years.

Comprising one women’s bag, called Jeanne Toussaint, and one men’s, called Louis Cartier, the line is named after two renowned figures in the history of Cartier.

Jeanne Toussaint was the Director of Fine Jewellery for Cartier in the early-mid 20th century, whilst Louis Cartier was the grandson of Louis-François Cartier, a famous French watchmaker and founder of Cartier in 1847.

Available in a choice of cream, black and bordeaux colour schemes, the Jeanne Toussaint bag combines artisanal techniques with lavish crocodile skin and leather.

The new line also includes a selection of accessories including a document holder, which comes in either black leather outer with a bordeaux lining or caramel leather with an ebony lining, and a caramel leather weekend bag.

Prices for the Jeanne Toussaint range from €1700 to €7500, and from €1200 to €3150 for the Louis Cartier.

Cartier is one of the world’s most famous luxury brands.
