ENTRY-LEVEL WALLETS ON CHAIN FROM HERMÈS, CHANEL, DIOR AND GOYARD FOR AS LOW AS HK$ 16,300!
PRACTICAL AND ELEGANT, WALLETS ON CHAIN ARE THE BEST FIRST DESIGNER BAGS TO BUY!
The wallet on chain, or simply “WOC”, is a wallet attached to a chain. Although we don’t exactly know which brand first came up with the WOC, but what comes immediately to mind are Chanel’s WOCs, for they are like miniature versions of the brand’s iconic 2.55 and Classic Bag. Besides retaining its signature interlocking CC logo, Chanel’s WOCs are delicate and elegant but also extremely practical. What’s more, their prices are much more affordable compared with larger bags, making them an excellent choice for a first Chanel handbag purchase!

The WOC has maintained its status and popularity throughout the years, prompting various luxury brands to release their own unique WOCs, such as Dior’s WOC which is based on its classic Saddle Bag and the minimalistic Lady Dior Pouch.
Dior Saddle Pouch $16,900
Dior Lady Dior Pouch $16,300
WOCs from century-old French brand Goyard include the Plumet Pocket Wallet and the Monte-Carlo PM Clutch, both of which could be used as a wallet or handbag, worn crossbody or held by hand.

In recent years, Hermès has also released its own WOCs, with Kelly To Go and Constance Long To Go being the most popular, as well as more alternative choices such as Clic 16 Wallet and Verrou Chaine Mini. As with all Hermès products, these luxurious WOCs are made with the finest leather, minimalistic design, and exquisite craftsmanship. Each Hermès’ WOC is just as much sought after as its other handbags, and are often sold out. Still, you can try your luck at Hermès’ official website or stores to get hold of one!
