PROENZA SCHOULER WALLET on CHAIN
It seems like Proenza Schouler is capitalizing on the uptrend growth of Chanel's iconic Wallet on Chain[aka WOC] with the launch of their very own rendition of the WOC in the PS1 design. Everyone is clamoring about the latest addition to the PS1 family and who wouldn't? It's such a beautiful piece! Measuring 8"x2.5"x5.75", I think it's just the perfect size for an evening out or even for carrying your travel essentials. The strap is 60" long with a 25" drop. Available in 7 colors - classic black, midnight, raspberry, birch, lipstick, lemon and purple rain[CLICK on the COLORS to SEE PHOTOS and PURCHASE]- it's a brilliant move to make it available in almost every color of the rainbow. What I love about this piece is that the chain is removable and you can actually use it as a regular wallet. It has one interior pocket with a front slit for bits and bobs, as well as a zipped pocket at the back. 6 credit cards can fit snugly into each one and I believe there would be 2 pouch pockets as well. Oh and the bonus you might ask or rather the advantage it has over the Chanel WOC [apart from the price of course] is that it has a mirror! Perfect for instant retouching.
Color-wise my top 3 would definitely have to be the midnight, raspberry, and lemon as you see in the photos above. But my absolute fave would have to be the one in raspberry. Available via Proenza Schouler online [by the way, they do ship internationally] it retails for USD785, which is honestly not a bad price at all considering the utility you can get out of it. And if you can muster enough to purchase a Chanel WOC, why not get several colors of this beauty while you're at it!
