Handbag News: Cartier Launches New Marcello Bag


The launch of a new handbag always makes me giddy with excitement, but who would have thought the source of my euphoria would be Cartier? Yes, indeed, the luxury jewelry giant is re-emphasizing their past endeavors into leather goods with the introduction of a new classic handbag tailored to the modern woman.

The Marcello Bag (shown) is made from leather and features Cartier's double "C" logo prominently stitched onto the front in addition to the bag's wonderful shape. The 'Marcello' comes in three sizes (S, M, L) and will be produced in various colors and materials. Cartier, known for their customization services, will offer customers the opportunity to pick and choose the details of their bag from bespoke kits that will be available at all their stores. Prices will range from $1005 for a small, basic bag to $1600 and up for a large bag depending on materials and detailing. Custom bags will start at @ $2000 and up and pricing will depend on the value of materials and hardware (gold or platinum) chosen. The upcoming season (arriving in stores in mid-June) will offer bags in midnight blue, tan, pink and zebra ponyskin.

I like what I see so far, and I'm certain the customization option will go a long way to push this bag and its' creator label to the top of the handbag hierarchy.
