Hermès Passant Wallet

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

IMAGE: HERMÈS

Consider this a refresher. Last August I did a post on a then hard-to-find wallet that only recently made its debut at the French luxury house. Many months on, while the Passant Wallet is still pretty rare (but still not as hard to spot as say, a unicorn), you can often catch glimpses of it whenever you step into the boutiques’ hallowed halls. And now that it’s making more appearances in newer colours I’ve never seen myself, I thought it apt to do a quick update.

Offered in 2 sizes (the Passant Compact Wallet and the Passant Long Wallet), it’s basically a wallet within a wallet. Let me explain. For starters, there are 3 parts to the Passant, the actual wallet as well as 2 separate leather pieces contained within, the first, a card case with slots, the second, a zip purse. In other words, you can use the wallet as is with all your cards and cash loaded in, or separate all 3 pieces and use them individually. The only difference between the 2 sizes? One’s shorter at 14.5 cm by 9 cm while the longer one will come in at 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm, which also means the former’s card case comes with 4 slots while the latter has 6 card slots.

Intrigued? It gets better. While I remember they only had the Black and Orange (or Feu) in Epsom leather back then, you’ll now find it in a wider variety of leathers (they’ve added Evercolor calfskin leather) and colours including Bleu Agate and Rouge Grenat, just to name a few. Priced at SGD2600 and SGD3200 respectively, there are 2 ways you could look at the eye-watering 4-figure sum. Yes, it is more expensive than most other designer wallets out there, but if you were to compare those prices to Hermès’ own Azap, Béarn, Constance and Kelly wallets, the Passant is definitely a steal.

CHANEL QUILTED WALLET ON CHAIN IN PATENT

CATEGORIES:Other Brands

Chanel-Quilted-WOC-in-Patent-2

Apart from the standard Wallet on Chain Collection, in each season, Chanel always releases one or two WOC’s that are slightly different than the others. They are usually seasonal pieces, which mean that: ‘once the Spring Summer 2014 Collection ends, you will probably never see it again’.

Let me give you some examples:

The newest Chanel Boy Studded WOC from the Paris Dallas Collection is a bit larger than the original version. Oh yes and you got the studs of course.

Then we introduced the Chanel WOC Fancy CC some time ago, with diamond patterns, can you remember?

The most unusual is the Chanel vintage WOC, according to the SA, it’s a brand-new seasonal bag. Up until today we still need to figure out its name.

But let’s get back to the topic, the Chanel Wallet on Chain in Patent is from the Spring Summer 2014 Collection. You know how this collection rocked right? Patent and Metallic Clutches, Boy Bags and Classic Flap Bags were so-hot.

It’s not a coincidence that Penny found this bag at her favorite boutique. She was hunting for her first Chanel bag and hoped for a classic WOC from the permanent collection. But the SA took the Chanel WOC Classic Quilted out from the stock and told her that it’s a limited edition, a new bag and it’s only available this season.

Chanel New WOC CC logo

If you take a closer look, the design is slightly different than the Chanel WOC Classic Quilted. The main difference is the vintage CC logo that I absolutely love. And it got studs on it.

But a shiny WOC doesn’t come too often, the patent is what separates yours from the rest. And it’s also quilted in black, which makes it timeless.

And you know what it makes your appetite even better? This bag is cheaper than the WOC from the permanent collection. The Classic Quilted WOC is now priced at €1450 euro’s. While this Chanel WOC Quilted in patent is retailing for €1260 euro’s.

Read Penny’s comments yourself:

I have bought at €1260. Wonder why it was cheaper than permanent collection WOC. The difference is the glossy skin which I love (I love anything shinny and glossy), the logo is different and bigger whilst the strap is not shining if compare to permanent collection black quilted. It doesn’t have the small back pocket too. SA told me its limited edition and it’s new. Guess maybe its seasonal collection. It’s my first Chanel bag I hope this design lasted and I made a right choice.

From the Personal Bag Collection: Prada Saffiano Bow Wallet

From the Personal Bag Collection: Prada Saffiano Bow Wallet

To me a gorgeous wallet is just as important as having a stylish designer handbag. There are many occasions when a handbag isn’t necessary, and an on-the-go clutch or wallet will suffice. Coffee dates, lunch break errands, or even a quick trip where hands free is just more ideal then lugging around a handbag.

One of my latest favorites is the Prada Saffiano Bow Wallet. I love everything about it! I fell in love with the classic style, neutral beige saffiano leather, and the signature jumbo flat bow. So chic, feminine and perfect for on-the-go fashion.

The Prada Bow Wallet is dressed in saffiano leather and accented with beautiful golden hardware. To me, the gold-tone hardware is a standout feature. Silver is lovely, but with the golden accent elevates to another level. Another highlight is the zip-around opening which allows for extra security, and is great for those items you just want to toss in your wallet for later. On the inside there is a center zip pocket that divides the interior into two bill slots with eight card slots. It’s perfect and I love it!

Price: $800 USD, €730 euro

Chanel ladies and fans will absolutely fall head over heels with its Reissue 2.55 Small Wallet. These leather gems are sure to make the waves in the fashion industry as the beloved and famous Chanel 2.55 now comes in the handy dandy form of wallets. Well, all bags have their own stories to tell and with each creation is a rich history that gives them their own unique personality.

The Chanel 2.55 bears its name due to the simple reason that it was originally launched in public in February of 1955. The front lock also features the Mademoiselle Lock (because the legendary Coco Chanel was never married) which is strikingly different from the classic double CC logo we’re all familiar with. Karl Lagerfeld, who is now the creative director behind the famous fashion house reissued the 2.55 in February 2005 in commemoration to the 50th anniversary of the original 2.55 personally designed by Coco herself.

A pure luxury on its own, the Chanel 2.55 is a luxury leather handbag/purse that changed the game and the course of the fashion industry. Fast forward to 2016, we know have the Reissue 2.55 but now in small wallets. It features aged calfskin and light gold metal materials with black and burgundy lining. So what do you think.
