A classic shape since its inception, the Double C de Cartier bag, is reimagined with a new chain strap and vibrant colorways for fall. Soft mint green and Capri blue shades channel the brightness of the Tyrrhenian Sea while maintaining the bag’s enduring charm.

Central to each bag is the enamel-finished double-C clasp, done in an understated tone-on-tone to match its leather. The creation of the clasp was handled like a piece of jewelry: Each detail, from how it opens to the exact shapes of the Cs (which was inspired by traditional wax package seals), was carefully considered.
