TREND ALERT: Minaudière

A
key ítem for this SS13 and AW13 catwalks show the “minaudière”.  

“A minaudière is a women’s fashion
accessory
, generally considered a jewelry
piece, intended to substitute for an evening bag.
A case with compartments, it allows storage for several items in a small space,
such as a makeup compact, lipstick, watch, reading glasses, or keys.”
The
minaudière appeared during the 1930s. Its invention is attributed to Charles
Arpels, of
Van Cleef & Arpels, but many jewellers and Haute Couture
designers have created their own models.

 This item has become a must-have accessory. We
all love simple box style bags fun shapes and motifs and surreal details are winners
by the likes of Olympia Le-Tan and Charlotte Olympia and shown in the street
style.
