Seen swinging from the arms of actresses such as Julianne Moore and Hilary Duff, the new Marcello de Cartier handbag is gaining a steady celebrity following. The sleek tote comes in three sizes and is available in materials such as smooth calfskin, goat skin, pony hair and crocodile. The trapezoid-shaped bags are either embossed with Cartier's signature double 'C' logo or come with a dangling logo tag. Look for colours such as caramel, navy blue, maroon, black and raspberry, as well as pony hair in patterns such as zebra and leopard. Moore was seen out-and-about with the medium-sized Marcello bag in black leather (HK$8,750). Or, for something more unusual, opt for the small raspberry glazed goat skin Marcello bag (above; HK$7,900). The collection is available from Cartier, Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2522 2963.
