The Framboise colour, a rich and beautiful shade of deep Raspberry, was launched in the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis line in 2006. The Koala wallet with its signature S-lock was one if not the most functional and stylish wallets of the Vernis line and definitely one of my favourite items in the Vernis line.
As with Vuitton craftsmanship, a detail about this wallet that I find absolutely charming is how the leather has been neatly pleated at each corner on the inner facing flaps of the billfold compartments.
Compact and non-cumbersome, this wallet measures a neat 4.9″ x 3.9″ x 0.8″ which means it can fit into most any handbags you may have whilst giving you space for other items in your bag. Unlike the Zippy wallet and the Porte-Trésor International wallet, this Koala wallet is compact enough to fit into the Minna Street and the Mott (both also from the Vernis line) sling bags for example, with no fuss about fitting in other accessories into those bags.

- Monogram Vernis leather
- Press-lock closure
- Golden brass pieces, stamped with Louis Vuitton
- Bill slots and ID slots
- 9 credit card slots
- Hidden pocket behind the credit card slots
