Top 5 Wallets-on-Chains

Top 5 Wallets on Chains: Chain of Command

Technically this Lanvin is a wristlet wallet but I see it as a sleek clutch, a summer staple. It is not a traditional wallet, there is major organization – a zip pocket to keep contents safe, as well as slip pockets on the back and beneath the flap for when you need easier access.
