Consider this a refresher. Last August I did a publish on a then hard-to-find pockets that solely just lately made its debut on the French luxurious home. Many months on, whereas the Passant Wallet remains to be fairly uncommon (however nonetheless not as laborious to identify as say, a unicorn), you’ll be able to usually catch glimpses of it everytime you step into the boutiques’ hallowed halls. And now that it’s making extra appearances in newer colors I’ve by no means seen myself, I assumed it apt to do a fast replace.

Offered in 2 sizes (the Passant Compact Wallet and the Passant Long Wallet), it’s mainly a pockets inside a pockets. Let me clarify. For starters, there are three components to the Passant, the precise pockets in addition to 2 separate leather-based items contained inside, the primary, a card case with slots, the second, a zipper purse. In different phrases, you should use the pockets as is with all of your playing cards and money loaded in, or separate all three items and use them individually. The solely distinction between the two sizes? One’s shorter at 14.5 cm by 9 cm whereas the longer one will are available in at 20.5 cm by 9.5 cm, which additionally means the previous’s card case comes with Four slots whereas the latter has 6 card slots.

Intrigued? It will get higher. While I bear in mind they solely had the Black and Orange (or Feu) in Epsom leather-based again then, you’ll now discover it in a greater variety of leathers (they’ve added Evercolor calfskin leather-based) and colors together with Bleu Agate and Rouge Grenat, simply to call a couple of. Priced at SGD2600 and SGD3200 respectively, there are 2 methods you possibly can take a look at the eye-watering Four-figure sum. Yes, it’s costlier than most different designer wallets on the market, however for those who have been to check these costs to Hermès’ personal Azap, Béarn, Constance and Kelly wallets, the Passant is certainly a steal.
