You know that basic black handbag you?ve been toting around for decades? It?s trusty, it?s timeless?and it?s terribly worn-out. Let?s try something new.

Introducing the C de Cartier handbag collection.

Handcrafted in Italy, these supple leather bags possess all the same luxurious qualities you?d expect from a Cartier design--and come in a spectrum of amazingly rich colors. Each of the nine hues represents a gemstone shade reminiscent of the Maison?s jewelry collections.

The bag also comes in two sizes (small and medium), both of which can go from your morning business venture to after-dinner cocktails with ease. Look to PureWow?s Guide to Effortless Style to see how we carried three of the handbags throughout our day, including a white number exclusive to the U.S. and Canada. 

You can find the brand-new C de Cartier collection on Cartier.us (hint: Mother's Day is right around the corner). But take it from us: When a boutique is as chic as the Northpark Center location, stopping by for a firsthand look is kind of a no-brainer.
