SINGAPORE (Feb 18): Cartier is well known for its fine timepieces and jewellery, and its classic quality and elegance extends to leather goods. The Guirlande de Cartier is a bag that is for keeps: The design is classic and the colours of red, green and black are easy to match. The bag made from calfskin has eight sides and is outlined with a gold frieze in “garland of flowers” or “butterfly” motifs.

These designs are a nod to Cartier’s signature jewellery boxes of the 18th century. The interior has been given the Cartier luxe touch: black leather lining. The Guirlande de Cartier comes in three sizes — mini, small and medium — to suit every occasion.

Pack up

A good holiday starts with reliable, quality luggage. German brand Rimowa has launched a new offering based on its classic collection, and the signature groove is still there. The design came about by accident in 1937, when the parallel-grooved aluminium structure was used to stabilise the thin aluminium. It looked so good that the designers decided to keep it.
