As we move into a cashless society, cardholders are increasingly overtaking the bulkier wallet or purse. Slim, minimalist and often cheaper than a full-sized wallet, a cardholder won’t bulk up your bag or pockets. Check out our list of the best-branded designs for 2020.
THOM BROWNE – Tricolour-Trimmed Textured-Leather Cardholder
Sporting Thom Brown’s signature tri-colour trim, this cardholder has a preppy vibe. Crafted from smooth black leather, its design is US-inspired and has four slots for your plastic. An internal slip compartment follows the theme, lined with tri-colour striped fabric.
GUCCI – GG-Embossed Leather Cardholder
If you love a product that offers a tactile experience, then embossed leather is the way to go. Gucci’s black design has a perforated texture along with a raised monogram. There are four card slots, together with a central compartment for those who need to keep hold of the odd receipt, or note.
GIVENCHY – Logo-Print Coated-Canvas Cardholder
Givenchy’s robust canvas cardholder is a good choice for those who tend to scratch up leather accessories. Chuck it in your pocket with keys and the smart logo print will survive intact. There are three card pockets in this one, plus some space for your paper cash.
BRUNELLO CUCINELLI – Logo-Print Leather Cardholder
Channel a chic rustic look with this three-slot cardholder from Brunello Cucinelli. The grained tan leather has a rich patina, ensuring it develops character with wear and age. The designer’s logo appears in a muted gold-tone, and it has smooth hand-lacquered edges that won’t snag on your pocket lining.
SAINT LAURENT – YSL-Monogram Leather Cardholder
YSL’s vintage monogram provides a subtle throwback to its mid-century heritage, seen in this piece in a silver hue. This is the holder for those who like to keep a range of cards on them at all times – it has a whopping six slots, as well as an additional compartment. Yet it retains a slender silhouette.
SAINT LAURENT – Logo-Debossed Grained-Leather Cardholder
A hot-stamped silver logo stands out against the smooth debossed black leather of this slightly more contemporary design from Saint Laurent. It has two slots and a compartment, so isn’t one for those who like to load up on store and loyalty cards. But its striking simplicity makes it ideal those who want to exude sophistication.
GUCCI – Tiger-print GG Supreme Canvas
Make a statement with this tiger print, tiger-motif piece from Gucci. The big bright cat graphic provides a colourful feature, offsetting the more muted browns and blacks across the rest of the canvas cardholder. The interior compartment is leather-clad with the brand’s debossed logo, while the exterior offers four slots.
DOLCE & GABBANA – Logo-Print Leather Cardholder
Choose some classic D&G style, with this gently grained Italian accessory. The contrast of the black leather really makes its bright gold-tone logo pop. There are two card slots on each side and a central pocket.
GUCCI – GG-Debossed Leather Cardholder
Here the fashion house founder’s initials are echoed in both the debossed leather and a silver monogram plaque. Two card slots are found on either side, with a middle compartment for any extra plastic or paper. The leather continues into the interior, with a black fabric lining.
VERSACE – Baroque-Print Leather Card Holder
If you’re a fan of flamboyant prints, Versace doesn’t disappoint. This dramatic baroque pattern is embellished with a gold-tone engraved Medusa plaque. The base is made up of black leather, with four slots and a slip compartment. It looks great paired with Versace’s Medusa black leather braided bracelet.
SAINT LAURENT – Monochrome Leopard-Print Leather Card Holder
A striking black and white leopard print makes this another fabulous statement piece for those who like accessories oozing with personality. The monochrome means it’s still easily matched with a range of outfits and colours, while the pebbled leather gives it a satisfying feel. The cardholder is fully lined with four slots.
BURBERRY – Monogram Print E-Canvas Card Case
Shop this cardholder from Burberry’s new eco-conscious range. The innovative e-canvas material is environmentally friendly, made from renewable sources meaning reduced emissions and water consumption. It features the brand’s logo print and provides four card slots, a centre slip and hand-painted edges.
