Vianel, the leather accessories label founded by Andrew Brooks last September, is starting summer off by adding a jolt of color—and a brand new exotic material—to its card cases.
Brooks was so passionate about finding a card case with an ultra-slim profile—the versions on the market were too bulky for his taste—that he left his job as a commodities trader and spent most of 2012 trying to create one. Today, his brand will introduce four new colors for its V3 card holder made from Indonesian ring lizard. (If you're wondering, the lizards look like this.) Shoppers can choose from neon green, bright pink, and deep red. Our personal favorite is the sky blue model shown above, but we trust that you have good enough taste to, you know, pick the shade that's right for you and your personality.
Speaking of personality, the brand also offers customization: you can print your initials or a message (up to two lines) on either side of the case in gold leaf. The card cases cost $250, and will be available on Vianel's website Tuesday afternoon.
