Smythson Travel Wallet
So I saw this a long while ago and I had been searching for this exact purse but all my leads came to a dead end. However I did manage to find an unofficial dupe of it:
1 Red Calfskin £495
2 Black Pigskin £230
3 Magenta Calfskin £230
4 Brown Crocodile Print Leather £290
5 Brown Crocodile Print Leather With Removable Dividers £445
I am absolutely in LOVE with this wallet. I think the best thing about it is that it isn't obviously badged (or badged at all) with any logo or brand. The design speaks for it's self, as all beautifully designed pieces are. The red is absolutely perfect as a Valentine's Day gift, IF you have £495 just sitting there doing nothing... if not, the pink is equally as beautiful at less than half of the red. If skins are what you're after, Smythson do an imitation leather version and also one with interchangeable dividers if you are one of customisation, but of course that comes at a price.
Personally the black is on my wish list (boring, but undoubtedly classic).
If you are a frequent traveller/a disorganised mess/someone in need of a new purse/wallet, this is the purse/wallet for you!
