Hermes-Kelly-Flag-Wallet

Everything-limited is certainly worth chasing, like the Hermes Kelly Flag Wallet. We were told that only 12 pieces were available in each store.

The Kelly Wallet is one of Hermes’s Classic accessories and needs no introduction – the beautiful Kelly Lock in the center is what we’re all craving for. The Flag Wallet edition is in bi-color blue and black or in bi-color red and burgundy.

The purpose of this post is to give you more details about this beauty. First, it’s covered in Epsom Calfskin. The interior is the same as the original Kelly Wallet, it features 12 credit card slots, 2 pockets for bills, central zip purse for change with Kelly Lock pull-tab. This bag is great as an evening clutch or a long wallet.

Measuring 4.5’ x 7.7’ inches, priced at $3650 USD via Hermes boutique.

Never carried, this Hermès Kelly Long Flag Wallet is absolutely pristine with the protective plastic intact on the hardware.  The limited edition style is very collectible in a combination of Flamingo and Coral Epsom leather.  Known for its ease of use, functionality, and understated chic panache, the Kelly Long is both practical and beautiful.

Textured and durable Flamingo Epsom leather has a Coral center block and interior.  Accented with sophisticated Palladium twist lock belted closure.  Gusseted sides allow for easy management.  The interior is outfitted with twelve card slots, a central zippered coin compartment with padlock pull and multiple currency slots.     Made in France.  Blind stamped Q within a square.   Protective felt and Hermès box included.

Women’s Hermès Purses and Wallets

There’s something empowering behind owning a luxury made item. Whether it’s a flowing gown or a wallet that remains hidden in a bag, that feeling is present in every single item. Hermes has been the premier couture house in France ever since it was founded in 1837. The brand’s attention to detail, intrinsic designs and creative vision are executed flawlessly in every piece. When looking for wallet, Hermes is your trusted brand in elegance and style that will last a lifetime. From flawless materials to stunning hardware nothing quite compares to what Hermes brings forth with each one of their unique designs.

Hermes Kelly Wallet

I am always on the hunt for the perfect wallet because my wallet is the most important item in my bag (sometimes more than the bag itself)! I actually spend more time choosing my wallets than my handbags because there are so many conditions to be met, but today, the hunt for THE wallet is finally over. The latest style from Hermes, the Kelly Long Money Holder or Ligne Kelly (I prefer to call it the Kelly Wallet/Clutch) is the answer to my dreams! It is 7 inches wide (18cm, half the length of a 35cm birkin) and may also be used as a clutch, nothing like a two for one to get me excited! (More after the jump!)


I went through my list of requirements: chic style (it’s Hermes, it’s a Kelly, need I say more?), a color that will endure daily abuse (etoupe is the perfect shade of taupe gray that won’t show dirt or stains), adequate credit card/ID slots(12- I only use two credit cards but seem to have a dozen of other ‘cards’- ID cards for my son and I, insurance card, prescription card, membership cards, VIP cards to clubs, Gym card, Yoga card- the list is endless!), space for cash (two slots, you can fit a passport in one of them!), foreign currency/checks/receipts (there are two pockets behind the credit card slots which will fit everything from Chinese RMB to the Euro), and functional coin pocket (with an adorable miniature Hermes lock as the zipper pull which actually cinched the deal for me, who else but me would buy a wallet purely because the zipper pull is so cute!?!?).

Made of ultra durable and lightweight Chevre Mysore (Goatskin), the Kelly Ligne is the best Hermes wallet I have ever owned. My Hermes Dogon and Bearn wallets lack sufficient card slots and they do not close properly when the coin pockets are full. The Kelly clasp allows me to stuff as much as I want without worrying about closing it! Plus I love being able to open it and look down to see everything I have in there at one glance. The best part, though, is its double function as a clutch (I put my cell in there and it fits!) and you don’t have to worry about a wallet for your credit cards or cash because it’s already built in! There is a wait list for the Kelly Ligne wallet so you must call your Hermes SA immediately. It is available in multiple colors but I absolutely love the etoupe, it is so chic and sophisticated. At Hermes Boutiques worldwide.

Each year, Hermes changes the leather and exotic skins you may order from depending on availability. Here are the skins available this year if you are one of the lucky ones to be on a permanent list.

EXOTICS

Porosus crocodile from Australia– Most commonly found on Northern shores of Australia, New Guinea and Indonesia. Hermes does not glaze the Porosus croc skins so they will never peel. This skin is polished with an agate stone and the skin has to lay flat under the machine so once it is made into a bag, you will never be able to polish it again! I’ve ordered mine in Graphite (it turns gray, black or brown depending on the light) and am anxiously waiting it’s arrival. The Rouge 95 is also amazing and gorgeous!

Niloticus crocodile from Africa– the ever popular matte croc is rich and sumptuous. (All crocs have to be at least 10 years old to meet Hermes standards)

Mississippi Alligator– the best ‘gator skin in the world is from the US.

Lizard from Africa– Available in size 25cm or smaller due to the small size of lizards.

Ostrich from South Africa – Hermes uses the most incredible ostrich skins with flat quills. My White ostrich Kelly is from the ’60s, older than me, and is still flawless.

LEATHERS

Veau Swift– Veau means calf in French, the word after it is usually the way the calf skin has been treated and/or stamped. This is a soft and sturdy calf skin.

Veau Togo – One of the most popular skins from female calf skin, tumbled and printed. I was told it is being phased out, what a shame as I just love Togo!

Veau Box – A stiff calf skin that wears to a beautiful patina but scratches easily.

Veau Epsom – Calf skin that has a smoother grain and is very stiff, I like this for the white Hermes bags.

Troika Calf hair– A delicate and gorgeous skin but it will wear around the edges. Not the most durable.

Vache Liege– Vache means cow in French- you’ll see that cow skin is also thicker than calf skin. Liege is the way it is treated and stamped.

Vachette Crispee Fjord – Cow skin in a heavy and looser texture.

Chevre Mysore– Goatskin is becoming increasingly difficult to find at Hermes quality so chances are you won’t be able to order one this year so if you see one ready made at the boutique, grab it!

Taurillon Clemence – The softest and most durable of skins made of Bull leather. The grain is looser than the Veau skins.

Buffle– Buffalo skin is as tough as you can get. This is usually used for luggage.

This is it for orders made in 2008. I told myself I would not order any more leather Hermes bags and would focus on exotics but couldn’t resist ordering the Taurillon Clemence in Olive. The color is so urban and cool! If I have time later, I will post another entry on the colors available in each skin.

A serious Hermes collector does not merely buy birkins. There are so many delectable items to be had and treasured. I bought a photo album and journal in Blue Jean Veau togo when my son was born, I’ve been keeping the journal and album with all of his “firsts” and will give both to him when he has his own child. My own Hermes bag collection consists of Birkins, Kelly bags, mini Kelly pochettes, the Lindy, several wallets, and a couple of vintage bags in a mix of exotics and leathers. I also collect Hermes enamel bangles, belts and scarves. (Forgot to mention JPG’s Hermes ready-to-wear are funky classics that I adore, I especially love the silk tops and crocodile platform shoes). Yes, I am sick and my obsession runs deep but Hermes is the only luxury brand that does not lose its value (even Chanel does not hold its value once it’s left the boutique), in fact Hermes bags increase in value with time so at least I am not squandering away my child’s inheritance! Actually, I view my Hermes collection as heirlooms to be passed down to my future daughter or granddaughters.

Chanel Flap Wallets

Chanel-Flap-Wallet-Black-Lambskin

Your first Chanel Classic Flap Bag, your first bag crush. You are warned, the addiction can spread very quickly – you adore the leather, the CC signature, the front flap and everything about it. Before you know it, you will start hunting for more, like a hungry female lion looking for food.
If you start falling in love, it’s hard to ignore the feeling and it’s hard to turn your back on something that’s irresistible. Suddenly, bags and wallets without the ‘authentic CC’ logo are not your favorite dish anymore.
Occasionally you wander on Chanel website, to check whether there is an update, and you followed up checking on Bragmybag, to see whether you can find something fresh and of course the prices.
If you adore the Chanel Flap Bags, then I am pretty sure that you will love what we will be sharing next. It has all the elements that you can expect from the Classic Flap Bag, but without the interwoven chain. It’s not a WOC, but the Classic Chanel Flap Wallet.
What can be cuter? Imagine this, you are carrying the Chanel Classic Flap Bag in black caviar. You walk down the main streets, doing the usual thing, you know – shopping.
Now you’re standing at the cashier, ready to pay. To get your credit card, you need to grab your Chanel Flap Wallet inside your Chanel Jumbo Classic Flap Bag. It’s like there is a mini Classic Flap Bag inside your Jumbo Classic Flap Bag, that’s simply gorgeous!
The Chanel Flap Wallet is made with lambskin or caviar. Choose black if you want to invest in a timeless accessory. If you already own a Classic Flap Bag in caviar, then perhaps its time to enjoy the luxurious feeling that only the lambskin can provide. Put your hands on the super soft leather. The Chanel Flap Wallet has also back pocket (we told you that it got all the elements of the Classic Flap Bag).
If you want more exciting colors, you can also pick red or pink. Now let’s share the details:

Alexander Wang Goes Sporty for his Collaboration with H&M

Categories:Other Brands

Balenciaga-Padlock-Wallet-2

When we think of Balenciaga wallets, we think of… let’s say, anything that’s similar to the Classic City Bag. You know, aged brass hardware, crispy leather and studs over there and studs over here. And its totally effortless, a simple pair of blue jeans will match.

When Alexander Wang decided to steer the Balenciaga ship, he left the Motorcycle handbags untouched. And that’s great, because everyone loves the Classic City Bag and the Part-time Bag. It’s the reason why we turn to Balenciaga when we need a weekender or a casual accessory.

Alexander Wang also invented a brand-new line, starting with the Le Dix Collection. It’s a series of accessories that are made chic and elegant. No more studs or crispy leathers, just smooth and feminine handbags that every woman would fall in love with.

Also new Wallets have been introduced, like this Balenciaga Padlock Wallet. It’s simple yet a powerful statement maker. One look and we know it’s a luxury item. Crafted from smooth calfskin leather, durable and lovely. It comes with a flap and a fake padlock closure, which stands out. The wallet is finished with pale gold metal hardware. Measuring 10 x 14 (H x W) in cm, priced at $495 USD at Balenciaga e-store.

Chanel Wallets in Bi-Fold

Chanel-Wallet-Black-3

You remember the moment when you got your first Chanel bag? It’s an incredible experience, just like love at first sight. You get the chance to touch the leather, oh gosh, so adorable. And you love it so much that your start overprotecting it, just like a baby. So after use, you carry the bag back to the original box, safe and sound. Only then you can sleep with peace in mind.

But we all know that Chanel is addictive, the obsessions grow as fast as a virus. Once you are in the shop and you’ve picked your favorite bag, your eyes will start looking at other bags, wallets and pouches, consciously or unconsciously.

And because we receive a lot of questions about Chanel Wallets, we thought it’s about time to write a review about it. And of course, this article couldn’t happen without Winni. By the way, if you haven’t read her journey at our previous post, which is a ‘must read’: ‘The Shopping Guide in Europe’.

Today, we are going to talk about the Classic Chanel Wallets, the bi-fold. It looks quite similar to the Chanel WOC, the flap is covering the entire front. Also embellished with a CC logo.

The quality of the leather can be felt with your hands, its much more luxurious than a regular wallet and of course you pay a lot more for it. The leather available is calfskin or lambskin. The calfskin is grained, so you can feel the bubbles when touching with your hands. It’s also much more durable.

The lambskin is super soft and nice. But it’s less durable, my advice for wallets is always to pick lambskin. The wallet is usually hidden inside your bag, which is basically very safe from scratches and accidents.

And now for the details:
