Sale season is starting to wind down, but if you’re willing to look hard, there are still some great pieces to be had. The small accessories treasure trove is especially plentiful this time of year; during the milieu if discounts and bargains and coupon codes, most people look for big items like bags or shoes or coats. If you’re so inclined, a new wallet or cosmetic bag can likely be yours right now for far under retail.
I’ve done some looking, and by far my favorite deal in small leather goods right now are the Valextra International Passport Holders. Even though the brand is known for being a little bit pricey (above and beyond the normal price levels for this industry), at more than 50% off via Barneys, I can assure you that you’ll never misplace your passport again.
The original retail price on these cutout leather sheaths was $300, which I honestly don’t find all that obscene. Plenty of brands will charge you that much for a similar piece covered in logos or made out of canvas, so a bright, cheerful alternative with a cute design and real leather doesn’t seem all that terrible, in the broad scheme of luxury prices. That being said, $119 is even better, which is what these covers have been marked down to with Barneys’ latest reductions. If you consider yourself a jetsetter, you have to pick one up. Buy through the South American, Australian or UK versions through Barneys for $119.
