Just last week, Tina sang the praises of the wallet-on-a-chain, and now I’ve got the fever, too. The Proenza Schouler PS11 chain wallet just might be my favorite member of the chain gang. I have a similar design from Lanvin and I love it so much, but mine only has a wristlet strap, and this one has a long chain that can go crossbody – which makes all the difference.
If you’re still wary that a mere wallet can replace your clutch needs, it’s time to let go of that fear. There are so many instances when just a wallet is all you need. Especially when you’re jetting around during the day. And if you don’t overstuff it with unnecessary receipts, it will fit your phone and likely lipstick, too.
Meanwhile, Proenza’s style provides extra room and easy organization for your light load, and their signature pyramid-studded hardware makes it feel like so much more than just a wallet. Packing the bare essentials has never felt so right, and running errands has never been so breezy. At Barneys New York for $985.
