Hello everyone, I’m back with a new post. A review of my new wallet from Charles & Keith. I got this about a month and a half ago and have been using it ever since. This is my second designer wallet i had ever owned. My first was from the brand called baggit (also cruelty free) which was with me for almost 4 years. It was time to get a new one.
Charles and keith brand has range of shoes, bags, jewelry and accessories. Their products are all made from PU / faux leather hence no animals were harmed in their making. Their brand is certified for reduced carbon foot print and they also claim to support organizations for gender equality, breast cancer and Earth hour for environmental causes. It is one of those designer brands which is vegan-friendly. Their designs are chick and sophisticated.
*Edit note 2019 – It seems this brand had started incorporating some leather products as well from last year. Although majority of their products still are vegan leather, do check their product details on ‘material’ field to verify before your purchase.
Where to get? Check out their website click here . Their stores are found all over Singapore as well. I had picked up mine from their store at the mall.
My selection was a mini envelope – wallet in a light grey color with golden hardware and embroidery detail to it’s outlines. It was also available in light pink and brown (probably more colors too). I fell in love with the grey since it was very versatile and professional color choice.
In the front side it has a coin pouch , with the brand name engraved in gold on top. And a click button closure. This holds lot of my coins and it does not fall out, even the design looks that way.
At the back, it has a beautiful and shiny golden zipper. This is mostly for adding a statement to the wallet rather than a useful storage. It doesn’t fit much in here and can open semi only. However i still use it, by putting some mini photos in there. I would say this is my favorite part of the wallet.
The mini wallet actually holds so much stuff. When you open the other side, it has 7 card slots and back-side of these card holders can also be used for storage such as business cards, id’s etc. The top opens to a single long flap for storing cash/bills.
I had always used big sized wallets my entire life. Since i wanted more storage and pack my cell phone inside as well. But that also lead to storing a whole lot of unwanted crap in there. This mini wallet made me take away things i do not need on daily basis and only secure my needs in here. It has made my daily life easy. When in a hurry, or during travel, cab rides or any such occasion, it is easy to take out my wallet and pay quick. Even if I’m holding a million things in my hand this wallet it say to grab on to due to its size.
My over-all review is i’m loving my minimalist wallet! No complaints whatsoever. It’s price range is reasonable for the quality. If you are looking for a new wallet/bag check out their website, you might find something you like. Let me know your thoughts on the comments below.
