A Brief History

The minaudiere first appeared in the 1930's and the creation is attributed to Charles Arpels of Van Cleef Arpels after he witnessed Florence Gould, one of the wives of philanthropist of Frank Jay Gould, throw her essentials into a tin box. Since then, many designers have created their own variations. 
Petite, feminine and usually synonymous with evening garb, is no longer this stylish little accessories’ definition. 
Today, the pint-size clutch has broken its stereotypical mold of evening only and has recently been fashioned for big style at any time of day.

Summertime Style

Because Spring/Summer '20 is around the corner; 'grab and go' is the motto and getting into the sunshine is the everyday priority. That's why the Minaudiere is our favorite bag for summer, and our partner-in-crime at every farmer's market, beach-side bungalow, and picnic in the park.

Here, Shiraleah highlights our top 5 Minaudieres that will quickly become closet staples, as this timeless style lasts a lifetime.
