Cartier, the French maison of luxury, just launched two new lines of handbags. The first since 2007. These new lines of accessories have been baptized with the names of Jeanne Toussaint (for women) and Louis Cartier (for men), as a tribute to two emblematic figures of the brand name.
Jeanne Toussaint It was a very famous courtesan of the Belle Epoque, who came to become a lover of Louis Cartier and Cartier Haute Joaillerie Department from 1933, directed for more than twenty years. It was known with the nickname of “Panther” or “Pan-Pan Toussaint” because of their fearsome character.
Jeanne Toussaint was inspired by his nickname to create the famous Panthère brooch designed for the Duchess of Windsor in 1948. Based on a Sapphire cabochon of 152 k, I could see a Panther coated diamonds marked with sapphires. The Panther was a mixture of ferocity and sensuality, so it did not hesitate to become the emblem of the maison Cartier.
The new line of bags bearing the name of Jeanne Toussaint combines the craftsmanship with luxurious leather for an extremely feminine devastating effect. With regard to color, you can choose between a tone cream, black or bordeaux.
Louis Cartier for men line takes its name from the grandfather of Louis-François Cartier, the founder of the firm. Louis designed watches Baignoire and Tortue introduced in 1912.
The collection that bears his name includes a attaché in two versions: black leather and lining Bordeaux or in leather with lining ebony camel color, and a beautiful and practical bag for the weekend in Candy-colored.
