Less is more.
Cartier’s double C logo is an unmistakable signature, a recognisable emblem that has been included in many of the Maison’s designs. From jewellery to watches and more recently, a revival in the bag department, each style blends classic good looks with modern sensibility.
The latest addition to the new family of Cartier bags is the Double C de Cartier. Crafted in luscious calfskin, the sleek, minimalist lines of the shoulder bag offer the perfect backdrop to the jewelled clasp bearing Cartier’s signature logo – a C within a C, two stylised letters traditionally inscribed on the red wax that the jeweller used to seal his gift packages.
“We sought to modernise the logo by freeing it from the interior oval, where it had previously appeared on the Maison’s bags. We handled it like a piece of jewellery, with particular attention being paid to its unexpected opening. For the first time, its presence is both aesthetic and functional.”
Marin Yuson, Director of Leather and Leather Accessory Creation, Cartier
Designed with an adjustable strap, the Double C de Cartier can be worn crossbody or over the shoulder with ease. The structured, boxy silhouette comes in 4 rich colours – deep black, intense red, fuschia pink and powder pink, each with its own character and versatile enough to be dressed up or down. Choose from the Mini and the Nano – two well-proportioned sizes to fit your essentials.

Cartier has further expanded on the Double C de Cartier line, unveiling two new models and new colours. Actress Lily Collins brings her curious and multifaceted nature as the face of the collection, perfectly embodying the stylish and elegant feel of the bag. The new models are embellished with a jewellery chain for a casual chic touch to the already impeccable style of the bag.
The small model comes in classic black and red; while the mini model features the new capri blue and mint green, or red, black and powder pink.
