From time to time you’ll find new items added to Proenza Schouler’s online site, and this time round, it is the Proenza Schouler Mochila Wallet collection, which are retailing for USD145 (around SGD190) each. Pretty much around the same size as the Proenza Schouler PS1 Wallet I featured before (around 19 cm by 10 cm), I frankly wasn’t too thrilled with the Mochila wallets when I first saw them online.
Besides the fact that they aren’t completely leather (only the strap and the trim are, with the rest of them being a specially weaved fabric), they didn’t look that attractive at all.
That perception changed completely when I received my very own Mochila wallet today in the mail. Yes, it isn’t soft and smooshy like the PS1 Wallet, but the fabric on the Mochila ain’t exactly thin either. In fact, it is thick and soft, and very comforting to the touch. Besides making a very good party clutch (small and handy, but you’ll honestly have to keep a constant eye on it), it will also make a very simple wallet for the ladies, without all the usual bells and whistles.
Available in 3 different colours (I’ve got the one in the Grey/Black combo), you can get these babies online at Proenza Schouler, where they do ship internationally, including to Singapore.
