“Minaudières” by Van Cleef & Arpels

     Once a symbol of luxury, this small decorative case 
     has now become a statement accessory for almost 
     all outfits. La Maison Van Cleef & Arpels launches
     in 1930, an ultra-sophisticated version of 
     the vanity case.The story goes that Charls Arpels   
     caught Florence Gould, an american socialite, 
     slipping her lipstick into a white tin box. 
     Surprised that such a stylish woman has nothing
     in which to tuck away her cosmetics, he invented 
     the Minaudière.
