Slim and Trim

W’s features editor has her eye on this Vianel card holder


Andrew Brooks, clever finance guy that he is, figured there was a market for extra-slim and trim card holders in an array of fun colors and luxurious skins. “It’s annoying for guys to walk around with a big wallet in their pocket—and so many girls are carrying little pouches with everything crammed inside them,” he reasons. Turns out, retailers agree. After debuting at Paris Fashion Week last fall, Vianel (named for Andrew and his two sisters, Victoria and Elizabeth) is now available at Barneys and Theory boutiques, and if you order from their website, you can have a card holder (or wallet or pouch) monogrammed for free.
