One of the questions that frequently pop up regards the best WOCs to get now, which is why this selection of 5 classics are rounded up in today’s post. Yes, some of them are long-standing recurring favourites, with one new entrant from Celine that looks set to be a classic in its own right.
In other words, if you’re looking for a WOC that will never look a day old, then you can go ahead and pick one (or two) from the curated list below. Besides, they all come in solid black leather that’s as classic/safe as it gets. Also, do bear in mind that they do come in more colours than just black, but because everything else is seasonal, the best way to know what’s available is to head down to your favourite boutique to find out more.
01 – First up, the ‘newest’ baby of the lot comes from Celine, the Maillon Triomphe Wallet On Chain (SGD1850) in shiny calfskin leather that’s also one of the more accessible options under two grand. Six card slots, one roomy compartment and another flat pocket are pretty much all you need for the day, so this could be a great starter WOC bag for most out there.
02 – Moving on, Chanel’s Classic Wallet On Chain (SGD3990) that’s officially known as the one that started it all. Today, the 19.2 cm by 12.3 cm WOC remains a cult favourite for several reasons, mostly because it’s essentially a slimmer (and smaller) version of the popular Classic bag. The burgundy interior remains a lovely touch, and you will find two zip pockets to keep your essentials neatly in place, along with a roomy compartment that will fit your mobile phone, amongst others.
03 – You can say that the Lady Dior Pouch (SGD2950) is a classic with a twist, decorated in black ultra-matte calfskin and tonal matte hardware for that cool all-black look. Each WOC is sold together with 2 removable elements, a zipped pouch and another 8-card SLG, all of which can be carried individually or used together as one single mini bag.
04 – Louis Vuitton’s Félicie Pochette (SGD1700) is another WOC that’s all about the mix and match, all thanks to a similar system to the aforementioned Lady Dior Pouch, except this time it comes in the brand’s signature Epi leather. It’s one of the sleeker-looking options finished with a discreet embossed-logo at the corner, but still unmistakably Louis Vuitton (all thanks to the grained leather) for those in the know.
05 – Lastly, Saint Laurent’s Monogram Chain Wallet (SGD2080) is arguably the largest of the lot, measuring 22.5 cm by 14 cm that makes it a great crossbody bag for the everyday. It comes with 10 card slots, 1 coin pocket, 2 bill and 2 receipt compartments, and the beauty about this piece lies in the removable chain shoulder strap that converts it into an oversized clutch in no time at all.
