Swipe that Cavalli!

What credit crunch? Roberto Cavalli appears to be laughing in the face of the global economy crisis this week as he looks to continue his world domination plans with the launch of a Roberto Cavalli credit card. The card comes with privileges including special sales at Cavalli and invites to fashion shows.

Available starting March 1 at, this fashionable MasterCard in the designer's signature snakeskin print will be brought into the world at his very own launch party.

We know that Cavalli is a great businessman and marketer, outside of being an artist. “I love new projects” is what the designer recently told WWD about the flashy credit card. "They stimulate my creativity." And his bank account too, just like his other many lifestyle design projects.

What do you think? Is this a little too over the top, even for Cavalli?
