A firm believer in starting the new year with a brand new SLG? Well, you can definitely do so with these 5 iconic designs that are all available from some of your favourite luxury brands. There’s an evergreen Classic Flap from Chanel, a miniature Saddle Flap from Dior, a puffy Baguette from Fendi, an iconic Kelly Pocket from Hermès, as well as a super functional Capucines from Louis Vuitton. The common factor is that they all come in lovely shades of pink, varying from a sweet and powdery hue to a bold pink with just a tinge of orange, colours that are guaranteed to brighten up the mood whenever and wherever.
Starting it all off would be Chanel’s Classic Small Flap Wallet (SGD1310) that comes with 6 card slots, 1 bill compartment and two side slots for all your other bits and bobs. There’s also a zipped pocket at the back for coins and keys, though you should always take care not to overstuff your wallet so you don’t end up with an overly bulky SLG.
Dior’s Saddle Flap Card Holder (SGD580) is a streamlined alternative fitted with two patch pockets and two slots for cards and cash, made from smooth goatskin that’s known for its soft and lush appeal. Speaking of lush, Fendi’s Micro Trifold Baguette (SGD950) wallet is equally decadent, all thanks to the pink nappa leather embossed with a padded FF motif. On the inside, you will find a large compartment for notes, 3 concealed card slots, and an external coin pouch finished with its own press-stud fastening.
The Kelly Pocket Compact Wallet (SGD2200) needs no introduction, this time coming in a lovely shade of Rose Été in Mysore goatskin. A pocket in front and a zipped slot behind (finished with the Kelly padlock, no less) is pretty much all you get, but it can be just enough for those of you who swear by a single payment card to chalk up all those points.
Lastly, the Capucines XS Wallet (SGD1220) from Louis Vuitton might be sold out online, but you can find the Rosewater Pink Taurillon wallet over at the boutiques in Marina Bay Sands and Takashimaya Shopping Centre. LV calls it a ‘space-efficient’ design, with the interior comprising 5 card slots, one flat pocket and a zipped coin pocket housed within a compact (10 cm by 8 cm) trifold format.
