I'm interested in getting a new wallet and have been eyeing the Victorine wallet in monogram empreinte leather. I've never owned anything from LV and wanted to get your thoughts on the wallet. I'm looking for something durable. Is this a good option or would the Zoe be better? Are there any other wallets you would suggest?

Victorine is the most compact wallet that also has the most storage capability. Zoe is quite limited with storage. You definitely get more bang for your buck with Victorine. Empreinte does have an issue in the long term with the logo starting to smooth out with repeated handling and use. Something to be aware of but the leather itself will be durable. I have the monogram Victorine and think it’s a great little wallet.

I agree that the Victorine is a much bigger compact wallet. The Zoe is much smaller and it would be good if you have micro or nano bags. If not needed then go for victorine as it is a much better option. Fits more, easier to use and not as hard to get in and out. I have the Xmas animation victorine and love it. It doesn’t have a button on the front so doesn’t get scratched or dirty like the normal mono.

Yes to Victorine too. Grenelle Compact Wallet is Epi but I’m unsure it appears as Victorine on my local online site. Epi wears well.

I recently purchased a monogram/rose Victorine for my smaller bags. No regrets at all. You can put cash in without folding, there's six card compartments (and a hidden one for other cards) and a small coin compartment I don't use. If the coin part isn't a deal breaker then you'll probably love it.

Note: for full-sized wallets I recommend the Sarah and/or Zippy. :smile:

Thanks for this. I am eyeing the marine rouge empreinte leather for victorine. I didn’t know the logos will be smoothened out after some time.

I have the victorine in the damier azur with rose ballerine lining and the rose ballerine does not get dirty over time. I've had mine for two years and it still looks clean. The wallet is incredibly compact but still fits a ton. It's my favourite wallet ever and I don't see myself changing out of it anytime soon.
