A passport case isn’t necessarily a need but more of a want, so if you’re planning on getting one, it should definitely be a stylish piece that will accompany you in all your travels. The other piece of good news is that they come with additional slots (except for Hermès), so you can go ahead and keep essential credit cards within, making it way easier to do shopping and tax refunds at the same time.
Without further ado, these are the 5 different pieces which you can consider, starting with an age-old classic from Chanel (SGD760) which comes in quilted lambskin and furnished with a burgundy interior that provides a lovely pop of colour with every use. The second would be the Soft Leather Passport Case (USD340 via SSENSE) from Gucci, which takes inspiration from vintage designs of the 1970s, evident in the crinkled leather which further emphasises the vintage feel.
Prada’s Leather Passport Holder (USD320 via SSENSE) and Saint Laurent’s Monogram Passport Case (SGD600) are constructed with the house’s signature grained leathers (Saffiano and Grain de Poudre respectively), furnished with metallic logos, and perfect for the logo-obsessed lovers.
Last but by no means least, the Tarmac Passport Holder from Hermès (POA), which is perhaps the simplest style of the lot. What it lacks in terms of additional card slots is made up for by the fact that it comes with a snap-button closure, which is great for keeping your passport safely secured within. What’s your choice?
