Say Calvi and the first thing that comes to mind would be Hermès’ iconic cardholder. A small, compact SLG that does its function really well, the perfect size for tucking credit cards or name cards on either side before snapping it shut via its palladium-plated Clou de Selle snap closure.
What you might be unfamiliar with, however, is its bigger sibling, the Calvi Pouch, one that comes in two larger sizes that will definitely fit more than just cards. The Calvi Pouch MM (SGD1550) measures 22 cm by 15 cm and comes in the exact same silhouette as the cardholder, only this time furnished with an extra zippered pouch you’ll find on one side of the origami-inspired design.
To be used with the pouch or taken out and used on its own, the zippered pouch can be filled with coins, notes and even receipts that wouldn’t otherwise fit into the original Calvi. And if you fancy something even bigger, the Calvi Pouch GM (SGD2200) measures 25 cm by 18 cm, where you can slot bigger items like a notepad, making it an everyday piece that will work well with either gender.
Coming in Epsom calfskin (one of the sturdiest Hermès leathers), each Calvi Pouch is available in colours like Bleu Brighton or Noir, with the inner zipper pouch coming in a contrasting colour, Capucine (Bright Orange) or Gold respectively. If you love your little Calvi for its discreet yet functional appeal, you most certainly will feel the same with the Calvi Pouch (MM or GM) that’s now available at Hermès boutiques locally.
