Mention Double C and there are a few things that come to mind: an e-mail feature, the name of a certain prestigious Parisian fashion house, and maybe even Cindy Crawford. Well, add one more item to the list as Cartier’s updated range of Double C de Cartier flap bags are pining to be the BFFs of today’s power women on-the-go. Framed in a size that one can describe as just right, it also flaunts a smooth calfskin leather exterior in a selection of easy-to-match colours. Then, there is the luxe hardware such as a lacquered storied double C of the house as part of the clasp as well as a lightweight metal and leather chain for that contrast between elegance and edge. And just so you know this bag is uniquely yours, Cartier is offering hot stamping of the owner’s initials or even engraving of a date on the interior mirror of the bag (yes, there’s a mirror included that’s likelier to be more accurate of a make-up check than a smartphone camera). And if you’re the sort to be mindful of every purchase because you’re woke, note that Cartier’s commitment to sustainable principles and practices means that you’re able to trace every source of the bag’s blueprint, ranging from the origin of the leather to the rest of its supply chain. Yup, the Double C stands for chic and caring too.
