COMME des GARÇONS WALLET ‘Huge Logo’ Capsule

For some seasons now fashion brands across the board have pleaded their case for logomania. From streetwear labels to luxury houses and every circuit in-between, the movement’s undoubtedly industry approved. No stranger to an emblazoned aesthetic, Rei Kawakubo’s Japanese imprint COMME des GARÇONS has led the logomania vanguard for years. Spanning tees, hoodies, shirts and accessories, the label’s moniker, and subsequent logo, unapologetically takes the identity of a globally renowned empire.

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.

Bellroy Brand Guide

Bellroy

Back in 2010, four guys sat down together and designed five different wallets. 6 years later their range has expanded to 40 employees, over 10 different wallets and phone case designs and distribution all over the world.

Bellroy wallets were developed to try and eliminate those bulky ones that fill out your pockets. They searched for a new and inventive way to transform how we carry our everyday items. While going through idea after idea, Carryology, a blog sharing everything about bags, wallets, cases and luggage was created helping the designers work out what the public needed and wanted.

Knowing their main aim was to thin down wallets, Bellroy created wallets that does just that. They’ve tucked those cards we hardly use away but included a pull tab for easy access for when they need to make an appearance. Hidden storage areas for notes makes the wallets ideal for whether it’s extra safety when you’re out on the streets and getting your wallet out or just not wanting to show others how much money you really have on you.

Made from a strong, resilient and durable leather creates a wallet that is going to stand up to your needs. Using only vegetable tanned leather ensures all of them meet world-class environmental standards. Each leather is then finished in one of three ways. Naked leathers show more character over time, creating a wallet that is unique to you. Dressed leathers are treated to look newer for longer. The newest style is the all-weather leather, making your wallet durable and ready to take on all weathers.

All wallets are finished with either the word Bellroy embossed into the leather or a little metal owl in the corner.
