I designed my first (ostrich) wallet when I was 16. I still have it.
There were many others in the following years, either for myself or as gifts to my friends. That’s how I (re)discovered crocodile a while back.
Back then crocodile was like a museum dress: absolutely gorgeous but your girlfriend wouldn’t be caught dead wearing it. It was shiny and beautiful and immediately evocative of pimps and scenes of the Godfather. Then the idea hit: make it modern, make it chic, make it affordable.
I made my first wallet and the response around me was phenomenal: soon I had to make more for friends or face social exile. Thanks to them today we are a brand bearing my name. And our wallets are still tested on the people we love.
Another approach to luxury that we hope to share with you.
