PHOTO COURTESY OF HERMÈS
You’re probably aware of Hermès’ extensive SLG collection by now, especially with a plethora of cardholders/coin cases like the Bastia and Calvi which are still popular today. That’s not to say that the French luxury house is resting on their laurels, because it recently released a new series called City which includes pieces that are compact, practical and sleek.
Cleverly arranged to feature 4 card slots on both sides, with a slightly different orientation on each side, this allows you to store many cards while remaining slim, and you can slip it easily into your pockets (front, back, shirt, it doesn’t matter), a great option for men to grab and go.
As for the colours, there are plenty of choices, such as single-toned Biscuit, Ébène and Gris Étain, as well as those that come adorned with 3 colours like Noir/Bleu Nuit/Rouge Hermès. Should you be wondering about the price, the 8CC City Cardholder in Epsom calfskin leather is priced at SGD1500 each, while the softer leathers like Evergrain and Evercolor are priced slightly higher at SGD1650.
