Every few months or so, I’ll find myself wandering into Louis Vuitton if only just to check out the new arrivals, from bags and SLGs to RTW and shoes. And while I was in Bangkok last week, I came across the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene Compact Wallet Origami at their boutique in Gaysorn. Having glanced at it once or twice before, I asked the SA to bring it out of the display case so that I could have a closer look.
Remarkably simple in its design, it unbuttons to reveal an interior which allows you to fit up to 8 cards, along with a gusseted pocket on the front that’s good for coins. And that’s it really, which made it that more alluring for someone like me who was looking for something small and fuss-free.
Available in two sizes, the compact one (shown above) retails for SGD610, while the longer one (with 12 credit card slots and 5 bill compartments) sells for SGD915.
The only catch? It only comes in Damier Ebene or Monogram Canvas at the moment, which didn’t really appeal to me as much. If only it was also available in Epi, Nomade or Taiga, I would have gladly paid more and got one right there and then. Which is also how I ended up coming back to Singapore with a Silk’in from Hermès instead, but that’s a story I’m saving for another post.
