Anyone know of any wallets with similar design to this?

I've been looking for a new wallet and I came across this cute unique/quirky brand called "Hirameki" in a Tokyo department store last week. They run from roughly $120 to $170 USD. Here are some links to pictures below:

I was wondering if anyone knows of other brands that make wallets with the same sort of style? Long, plenty of pockets, nice leather, and most importantly: fanciful/artsy designs on the front? I'm thinking French cafes, picturesque streets.. etc... maybe I'm being too picky here :P

Anyway, I just might buy one of these, they are very pretty! :smile:

Those are beautiful. They'd probably even be big enough to use as a clutch in the evening. Hope you're able to find one, the only thing I can think of is to set up an Etsy account and put in a request for someone to copy this design with you choosing the picture in the front, and putting in a request for aprox. how much you're willing to pay.

Thanks for the additional suggests everyone :biggrin: I just saw Icon Shoes and really liked some of their designs.. I just wish they had some pictures of what the inside looks like!

Paul Smith seemed maybe a little too 'bright'.. I think I'm looking for something subdued but pretty

Anyway I went back to the Hirameki store yesterday but decided I am not going to buy one since I want to find a design I won't get sick of right away.. :rolleyes:

dudujessica - Yes, the link is here: http://www.e-hirameki.jp/fs/kawa/st-rfl-dc/#order According to their website it is 14700 yen which is about $165! Did you buy it already? Why was it so expensive? :sad:

But I've seen these wallets in person and they really are very nice.. just hope you can get the right price tag for it!
