The Difference Between the LV Long Wallet and Brazza Wallet

Categories:Louis Vuitton

Brazza wallets. Long wallets. Both look the same, with one key difference.brazza-and-long-wallets


Louis Vuitton long wallets come in a variety of choices. Epi, Taurillon, Taiga, and coated canvas the house is famous for, and much more. It’s a dependable wallet, one that you can find use for, everyday. So if you’re a fan of LV and if you don’t have one yet, it’s hard to imagine why not.

When I bought myself an LV wallet, I wasn’t able to read up enough blog posts or Youtube videos of what I might want. At the back of my head, I thought that there was only one kind of long wallet. (My purchase interests did not veer into flap wallets or zippy wallets that LV also has).

In case you’re wondering, the same looking wallet is called two things: the Long Wallet, and the Brazza Wallet. There is one key significance between the two. And we’ll find out more in the photos below.

The wallets all have 16 card slots, with an extra slip-on pocket where the Louis Vuitton logo can be seen. There’s two bill pockets (one wider than the other) helping you part your cash when necessary. And there are two flat slip pockets also for other odds and ends you might want to insert there (older styles have three flat slip pockets). You’ll notice that the Brazza wallet has a tiny little zipper pull, supposedly for perhaps coins. But myself I never had the heart to put coins in that compartment ever.louis-vuitton-brazza-wallet-monogram-canvas-small-leather-goods-m66540_pm1_interior-view

The Long Wallet is the same in almost everything. Except for one glaring fact: this kind does not have a zipper pocket. Which could be a downer for some, so they can instead get a Brazza.long-wallet-no-zipper

After several years with my own Brazza wallet, I realized several things. One, I didn’t have much use for the zippered pocket. And because it’s a hanging metal zipper pull, it tends to leave a mark on the leather where it rests: both dents and metal stains. It’s not a big deal though. But for a zippered pocket I thought I would use and while ending up not using it at all, on hindsight I should have gotten the Long Wallet instead.

Long Wallets, in my way of using it, would have been the perfect wallet for me. No zippers, no dents, no metal stains. So the wallet would end up sleeker, and perhaps less trouble some to carry around.

I’m not saying the Brazza Wallet’s zippered pocket is awful though. It’s just as beautiful. There are wallet users that prefer and use the wallet compartment too. And if you’re find carrying coins in a wallet where you carry cards too, there’s nothing wrong with that. The added bonus of having a wallet that doubles as a coin holder should not be a problem.

So in case you’re interested to buy a wallet in this form factor from Louis Vuitton, I hope this article helps highlight what I glossed over when it was my turn buying one. For me, I guess it’s time to buy a new one!

One of the most famous fashion designers of all time, Gabrielle “Coco” Bonheur Chanel was born in 1883 in Saumur, France. Raised in an orphanage and taught how to sew at a young age, Chanel had a brief career as a singer in nightclubs, where she picked up the name “Coco. ” She opened her first shop, on Paris’s Rue Cambon, in 1910 and began by selling hats. By 1920, she had ventured into clothes making, opening up two additional shops in Deauville and Biarritz. Her early clothing creations including the popular jersey dress, fashioned by the designer as a way to keep warm on a particularly cold day. Another popular design was the iconic “little black dress,” transforming a color worn in mourning to one that was synonymous with chic. With these and other creations, Chanel transformed the fashion world of the day, which was characterized by constricting garments for women. Instead, Chanel created simple yet sophisticated fashions made for a woman’s comfort. The designer’s early ready-to-wear women’s clothing line included blouses, suits, trousers and dresses coupled with elegant jewelry. Later in the 1920s, Chanel would launch her iconic perfume, Chanel No. 5. In 1925, the legendary Chanel suit, a collarless jacket design paired with a tailored skirt, was created. By this time, the young designer that came from humble beginnings became the toast of the literary and artistic world, gaining friendship with the likes of artist Pablo Picasso, playwright Jean Cocteau, and composer Igor Stravinsky, whom she also dated. By this time, Chanel was also creating costumes for the stage and screen, clothing movie stars like Gloria Swanson, Greta Garbo, and Marlene Dietrich. The 1930s saw the release of the still-celebrated Chanel bag, a classic handbag made with a thin shoulder chain, which would become the basic model for the many handbag creations to come. Later versions of the vintage Chanel bag would include the crossed C’s that would become the company’s logo. Along with stylish yet functional clothing designs and elegant, hands-free luxury bags, Chanel launched a line of costume jewelry splayed with fine gem stones in bold, theatrical patterns. But despite the success of her clothing, handbag and jewelry lines, the outbreak of World War II and the economic depression that followed forced Chanel to close her company and leave Paris later in the decade. She moved to Switzerland, where she lived for several years. In 1954, Chanel returned to the fashion world at the age of 70 by presenting a new line of women’s clothing that was feminine while still maintaining ease of movement for the wearer. This sensible yet chic style incorporated elements of the masculine contrasted with feminine complements like strands of pearls and quilted designs (seen in the brand’s clothing and handbag creations). This balance continues to characterize the Chanel brand to this day, though Chanel herself died in 1971 and Karl Lagerfield is now the fashion house’s chief designer. Lagerfield has continued Chanel’s legacy style by taking traditional Chanel elements such as tweed, gold accents, and metal chains, and incorporating them into designs for the modern era. The Chanel name continues to be one of the world’s most recognizable fashion brands, as vintage Chanel handbags, jewelry and clothing continues to be sought-after by fashion aficionados the world over.

Wait, what is it with the “Boy” collection and why is it called as such? For newbies, the Boy collection is inspired by Coco Chanel’s greatest love in the persona of Boy Capel who is a known polo player. Now that explains it.

Now let’s talk more about this particular Small Boy Chanel Zipped Wallet that looks effervescent and flawless. Made from lambskin and light gold metal, this wallet will definitely brighten up your closet. With its thick diamond quilting that we used to love, this one is a 100% win-win.

The iconic CC logo is placed in the upper middle of this wallet, as if parading to the world that it is a Chanel wallet and why not? Looking inside, it has several compartments and card slots. And oh, the middle part can also act as a coin purse. Lovely isn’t it?

No other fashion designer has left a more indelible mark on the world than Chanel. Gabrielle `Coco' Chanel revolutionized haute couture, replacing the traditional, corseted form with the ease of jersey dresses and simple suits. Today, headed by the creative force that is Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel continues to be the embodiment of classic French design. From the tweed Chanel suit to signature quilted leather handbags, the interlocking C logo is one of the truest symbols in luxurious design.


We brought you an in-depth look at Chanel's Cruise 2016 handbag lookbook last week, but when we got to poking around the brand's website, we realized that wasn't the full story. The number of small leather goods, including the popular Wallet on Chain (WOC) bags, the brand includes in the seasonal spotlight fluctuates with each collection, and this time, there were quite a few pieces well worth some attention.

The collection includes several styles of WOC, all of which work as a great entry point for a customer looking to get a piece of Chanel's signature look at a price a bit below that of a Classic Flap. There are also continental and flap wallets, coin purses, card cases and, unexpectedly enough, two glasses cases. Check out all the Cruise 2016 small leather goods below. Unfortunately, they're not available for sale on Chanel's site, but sunglasses and beauty are!
