If you’re on the hunt for a timeless compact wallet with classic good looks and great function, it’s time you get acquainted with the Silk’In Compact Wallet from Hermès.
Though small in size, this SLG does a mighty job offering the best of both the French Luxury house’s leather and silk worlds. The outside of the wallet is crafted in leather and is lined with silk twill printed with seasonal designs for a pleasant surprise when opened.
While the design does come in a larger (and longer) size as well, the modest (and unisex) Silk’In Compact Wallet is a chic fit for those who are looking for something tiny to fit into smaller handbags. But don’t be fooled by its 11.5 cm by 9.5 cm size though, because the compartmentalised interior has ample space with slots for storing cards and bills, as well as a zipped coin compartment in the middle to hold your change.
Functionality aside, there are plenty of colours to choose from as well. From charming classics in Gold and Étoupe to seasonal variations including Jaune Poussin and Vert Jade, all of them feature a different silk print interior that’s a treat whenever you open it up and look in.
Prices start from SGD1300 for the ones in Epsom calfskin leather and SGD1900 for those in Swift calfskin leather with the Noeuds Marins print on the front. Catch some of them online here, or head to the Hermès boutiques for a chance encounter with your ideal leather colour and silk combination.
