Minaudières are box clutches that are small enough to hold in one hand. They are dainty, lightweight, and are designed to hold just a few items such as lipstick, cash, and credit cards. Minaudieres are bigger than eyeglass cases, but are similar in shape and build. They are used in the same way as wristlets, but usually do not include a wrist strap; however, some have a small chain or wrist strap.
This type of purse is typically used for formal wear, such as cocktail parties, weddings, or red carpet events. Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent are well known for designing them. We always have minaudieres in stock. Have a look at our e-boutique.
