In search of a new bag for spring? Take a look at the new Guirlande de Cartier handbag, the perfect luxury souvenir from Paris for the year.

The line of structured handy-sized totes, which launched in Singapore this month, takes its inspiration from the red jewellery boxes that the brand is known for. Available in mini, small, and medium, the calfskin bags come in three colourways (classic house red, dark green, and timeless black), which are adorned with a golden wreath around the edges. Each bag also has an adjustable and removable strap so you can wear it across the body (perfect for those times when you need to go hands free) or carry it by the top handle.

Should you feel like partaking in the current personalisation trend, the bags can also be embossed with your initials in block or cursive script and with or without foil so you can truly make it your own.
