For SS19, the brand’s WALLET diffusion line embarks on a logo-charged tirade. Crafted to exacting standards in Spain, the premium collection employs cowhide leather to construct each silhouettes smooth surface. Brought to life in punchy cherry red and black hues, the capsule lends itself to several wallet shapes and sizes. Designs vary from billfold, to coin holder and elongated, while each possessing a common denominator; the COMME des GARÇONS logo stationed front and centre.
The French term, that translates to ‘like boys’, is stamped to each wallets exterior, presenting an unmistakable finish to every accessory in the line up. Gold hardware secures the zipped versions, while gold-foil branding also appears within the capsule.
Though visually each wallet is of the same aesthetic, internally, the styles serve different purposes.
