Compagnon, mini compagnon and zipped wallets, how do you like them?

  1. Hi,

    I'm considering getting a mini compagnon (loved Lorie's ink one) but am wondering how you are finding it to use. I like the size and the compartments it offers but I wonder if it won't be tedious to have to unzip it every time I want to use it.

    There is also a smaller wallet that appears to be newish and is called Portefeuille Wallet. It has a snap or button closure, no zip, but is smaller than the mini compagnon. Does anybody own one of these?

    I would like two kinds of wallets, a larger one that can take chequebook etc (perhaps a compagnon or a money) and a smaller one for cash, cards and essentials. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the various models and the zip closure.

  2. I would like some people to chime in, too. I have a violet giant silver money & love it but I want a small one too for a night out and to use for a small size bag.
  3. OK, mini compagnon owners, does it bother you to have to unzip you wallet every time you need to access it? :thinking:
  4. I don't know which style I have as I just purchased a pre-loved one. I think it's the compagnon...I LOVE the zipper part of it. I love how it keeps everything enclosed.
  5. I have a mini compagnon and I love it. I don't always zip it, but even when I do it's not a big deal. I do have some trouble getting change out because the coin compartment is deep and narrow. But other than that, it's great!!!
  6. Does Balenciaga make a French Style (half sized wallet) that has a snap closure not a zip. I'd prefer that I think.
  7. Is it a big wallet, long in shape? Or the more squarish, smaller version? Is it your regular wallet, that you keep cash, cards etc in?
  8. Not at all! I love this wallet, the zipper doesn't bother me at all.
  9. I think they do. It may just be called *wallet*.
  10. Thanks Lori. Yours is lovely.
  11. I love my Mini Compagnon! I don't always zip it shut if I'm in a hurry, but it's not a big deal. It's a great size and fits well in my Firsts, but it holds everything I need.
