The VIVIENNE faceted minaudière is a RAFE classic, inspired by the Portugal Pavilion in the Shanghai World Expo of 2010 by architect Carlos Couto. Made of crackled mother of pearl and abalone shells hand-cut and inlaid with brass and steel by skilled artisans. Each piece takes 3-4 days to complete. Every piece is unique and special. It opens to a lined interior that's proportioned just for the essentials - think cardholder, lipstick and cell phone. There’s a removable drop in chain that gives you the option to go hands free.
