Monaco blue lizard skin wallet with tan lining
Miami, meet your next elegant essential: A slim, hand-stitched wallet (from $45) by local brand Jac Henri. Lined with suede, Jac Henri wallets are crafted with luxurious Italian leathers and exotic skins like lizard and ostrich for a smooth, seamless pocket fit. And just enough compartments and an elastic band closure allow the sleek accessory to hold all of your necessities without compromising the wallet's shape. The man behind the design is Miami tastemaker Yannick J. Henriette, who came up with the original prototype eight years ago. Though initially created for men, women have become fast fans as well—the wallets fit perfectly in a clutch or minaudière. Henriette now offers the wallets in a variety of customizable colors and stitches. The recently launched line is currently available on Kickstarter, which helps propel new creative projects onto the market. The limited-time project will remain on Kickstarter through June 20.
