Last week we introduced you to Goyard's three newest additions to it's line-up of bags and accessories. The most elaborate, and the priciest, of these new additions is a mini-trunk clutch, which can also be worn crossbody, and today we have a treat for you: an up-close look at The Goyard Minaudiere.
If you're looking for a spacious evening bag, this is certainly not the bag for you. However, it's both super elegant and really cool at the same time, so if you're looking to make a statement, then this is the way to do it. The coolest thing about this mini-bag is the removable crossbody strap, which is really more like a cage. It's like an itty bitty home for this mini-trunk, and I really fell in love with the creative way Goyard approached the idea of the removable strap. I don't ever recall seeing anything else quite like it.
The bag doesn't hold much. You can fit an iPhone, a thin card case, a lipgloss and not much else, but if you're carrying this bag, are you really using it for maximum functionality? Didn't think so. Speaking of functionality, if you're using this bag as a crossbody, it's virtually impossible to get in and out of the bag while it's on your shoulder. You have to stop and take the bag out of its 'home' in order to open it up. Even still, it's an extremely beautiful piece. We even had trouble getting our hands on one to shoot for you, as the Minaudiere is exclusive to the following Goyard Boutiques: New York, Bal Harbour Shops, Rodeo Drive, San Francisco and Neiman Marcus Chicago
Overall dimensions of the Goyard Minaudiere Bag are 6.5" L x 4.25" W x 2" D. The white retails for $4,585 along with other special colors, while the black on black retails for $3,530. To find a store near you visit Goyard.com.
