I’ve been looking everywhere for something with a zip to put coins in, but then also be able to hold notes and cards. I don’t usually do online shopping, because i like seeing the “real” thing in front of me, before i purchase it. This item however was the last one, and I’m pretty sure this (A/W13/14) season’s item, so boutiques won’t be having them in stock for much longer anyway. Besides, a 20 day refund policy ain’t bad.
It’s not available right now, but they may restock it again:
Other brands usually just give you a cloth to wrap around your wallet, but Saint Laurent has a dust bag, which adds a nice perk to it.
1 COMPARTMENT WITH ZIP TOP CLOSURE
I think it’s water resistant, to an extent. It’s shiny, which i didn’t expect, and so there probably might be some coating on it.
For size comparisons, check out how it sizes up against a dollar bill, and a card holder.
The card section is slightly tighter than the Prada, so you may need to slide it in with a bit more care, until the leather softens up.
I can fit my passport into the compartment, BUT then i wouldn’t be able to zip it up. Maybe ill need to find a passport holder…
Besides the wallet, i wanted to review my experience on the Saint Laurent Online store. First of all, YOOX.com are affiliated in some way with the Online store, and customer reviews aren’t particularly positive (in regards to YOOX). I don’t know whether it was shipped from the YSL warehouse in New Jersey, or the YOOX warehouse, which is also situated there. Shipping speed was slowed down because of President’s Day (they dont ship on that day), so my order was shipped on the 18th of February (today’s the 24th of Feb). If it had gone past the 7 day mark, then yea i wouldn’t be too happy about it.
Although everything came within a reasonable time frame, i think their customer service wasn’t spectacular as it should be. Their contact phone number always went to voice mail, and I’m absolutely sure their peak hours are not from 7am to 7pm. They respond to emails selectively, and rather slowly too. (i also emailed the Hawaii boutique, and they responded very fast)
Overall, the experience with YSL online was average.* If i didn’t like my purchase, then it would just be bad. However, on a positive note their website has a very simple and classic look, very easy to navigate.
*Compared to the only other time i ordered something online was with Louis Vuitton Australia; which they were fast and responsive; i.e. fantastic.
