Comme des Garçons Embossed Clover Continental Long Wallet | Pictures and Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

My absolute love of fine leather goods has spanned most of my life, but gorgeous wallets are definitely among my favorite luxury goods to collect. I have been coveting a number of Comme des Garçons wallets for quite a few years, and while I have almost made the purchase numerous times, it wasn't until recently that I finally made the inevitable purchase. I don't know why it took me so long, because this is a really wonderful wallet!

Comme des Garçons Embossed Clover Continental Long Wallet in black is a stunning embossed leather wallet punctuated by alternating quatrefoils and spheres that add visual interest to this beautifully constructed leather wallet. Made in Spain, this luxury zip-around wallet measures 8"W x 4"H x 1"D, features an interior European snap coin pouch, and six credit card slots.  Furthermore, it has three long currency pockets– one of which is wide and deep enough to generously accommodate my iPhone 6 Plus. While this wallet maintains elegant dimensions, and isn't in the least bit bulky, it is sufficiently spacious to use in lieu of a purse on the days that you really only want to carry a wallet and phone.
Features:
  • Embossed Leather exterior
  • Smooth leather interior
  • Zip-around closure.
  • Polished goldtone zipper.
  • 3 Interior currency pockets 
  • 1 Currency Pocket deep and wide enough to accommodate smart phone
  • Snap coin pouch
  • Six card slots
  • 8"W x 4"H x 1"D
  • Gold-stamped logo at interior
  • Made in Spain by Comme des Garçons
According to Comme des Garçons,

Playful embossing patterns a classic continental wallet cast from smoother leather.

The zip-around closure allows the wallet to open all of the way for easy access to everything stored inside.
The wide and deep pocket is large enough to accommodate my iPhone 6 Plus
Snap coin pouch doesn't waste a lot of space, but carries ample coins

Overall Assessment: I am utterly smitten, and only wish that I had purchased this wallet years and years ago.  If you are in the market for a gorgeous, high quality wallet that doesn't look like every other wallet, then you ought to take a look at the gorgeous selection from Comme des Garçons.

    1. I love the embossing as well. The logic only appears on the inside of the wallet– the only thing that you see on the exterior is the beautiful embossing. I love that it isn't about the logo.

  3. That is lovely. The embossing is so fun but not cutesy. Nice choice, girl.

  8. I love that it holds the iPhone 6 inside. I've been struggling to find a wallet that can hold my phone, pen and writing pad, a bazillion cards and other odds and ends lol.

  12. I recently purchased the polka dot embossed pouch. Like you, I'd been eyeing a few pouches and wallets from comma des garçons and I finally got one. I have no regrets. It is crafted beautifully and I am obsessed.
