My Impressions:
In my hands, it feels very lightweight. Sometimes patent leather can feel like plastic, this does not. The material feels thin. As you can see in the photo above, I noticed that due to my long nails, I was leaving indentations on the closure strap. It is very faint, and unless you are really looking at the details, you won't notice them. Although, this could be a nuisance if you tend to throw your organiser into your bag or purse. It may be prone to these types of indentations. I tried to rub them out with my fingers, but not sure if that made any difference. The color is very similar to that of the Filofax Metropol Range. 

The style is also similar to that of the Saffiano Range. Same style strap, and similar internal layout design.

As with most compact sized organisers, I love using this particular size as a wallet. It is great as a planner as well, nice and lightweight compared to a personal sized organiser. If you are unfamiliar with the sizing of these organisers, please refer to my post here: How to choose a Filofax personal organiser.
*The Compact sized organisers use the same size paper as the Personal size. * 
 l I think the color selection of this range is perfect for springtime. It has been a while since Filofax came out with pretty pastel colors such as lemon, duck egg blue, and lavender. This organiser is due to be released on the Filofax USA website around Mid-late April 2014. If you can't wait until then, it is available for order on the Filofax UK website.
