Italian designer Roberto Cavalli is at it again.

This time, it doesn’t come in the form of couture gowns,  suits,  sportswear,  shoes,  jewels  or even perfumes.

Cavalli has designed the newest MasterCard. Of course, it is no ordinary rectangular-shaped piece of plastic. One design features his iconic snakeskin print.

The “Cavalli Card” will be available starting March 1, with application forms at and in all Roberto Cavalli boutiques worldwide.

The launch of this new product is scheduled for Milan Fashion Week in March.

“I love to immerse myself in new projects — they stimulate my creativity,” the designer told Women’s Wear Daily.

This is the latest offbeat brand extension for Cavalli, who in 2006 designed a cellular phone with LG, and now has his stamp on a vodka and wine production.
