After revising my small leather goods collection the other day I quickly came to realize that I never really use my designer wallets anymore. But I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, as in the modern world where most transactions are cashless, a conventional wallet is not necessarily that useful. However, one other item is. And if you’ve read the title of this post you already know that it’s a card holder.
Compact and functional, card holders are a perfect solution for keeping all of your essential cards stored in one place. And let’s just face it already: we’ve all been in a situation when you have no idea of where you’ve left your id. Though it’s not just that. The thing is that with mini bags being highly popular and on trend lately, a conventional wallet is no longer a solution for storing your essentials, as it simply doesn’t fit in. The card holder, on the contrary, due to its compact nature, slides into basically any bag. And if you are willing to add one to your collection, here are the 10 best designer card holders worth the investment.
1. Chanel Classic Card Holder
Instantly recognizable by the iconic CC logo at the front, the Chanel Classic Card Holder is a timeless investment. Featuring three slots for your credit cards: one on the front and two on the reverse.
2. Louis Vuitton Coin Card Holder
While the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram Card Holder is undeniably iconic, I give my preference to this newer design as it features an extra zippered compartment for coins, as well a flat compartment for banknotes. You never know when you are gonna need them, right!?
3. Hermès Customizable Calvi Card Holder
Dreaming of a Hermès special order? Well, get a taste of what it’s like with the Hermès Calvi Card Holder which can be customized with the colors of your choice and initials.
4. Saint Laurent Monogram Card Case
An iconic card holder in the world of luxury, the Saint Laurent Monogram Card Case is instantly recognizable thanks to the prominent YSL insignia at the front. It also has 5 slots for your credit cards and ids: two on each side and one in the middle.
5. Gucci GG Marmont Card Case
Crafted in soft, chevron-quilted calfskin with four credit card slots and one central compartment, the Gucci GG Marmont Card Case is as pretty as it is practical. I am personally in love with this dusty-pink shade.
6. Prada Saffiano Leather Card Holder
Whether slipped into a pocket or carried inside a handbag, the Prada Saffiano Leather Card Holder is going to make a bold fashion statement with the iconic Prada triangle logo at the front. Furthermore, with a total of 6 credit card slots, it’s much more spacious than many other designer card holders on the list.
7. Dior Saddle Flap Card Holder

A pop of color is always a good idea. And especially if it comes in the form of the Cassette Zippered Card Case from Bottega Veneta which sports an exaggerated version of the brand’s signature intrecciato with three slots for your credit cards, as well as extra compartments for both coins and cash.
