On this day in fashion history

In 2006, private bank Coutts & Co commissioned Stella McCartney to design its latest current account card – following a design for the Coutts World super premium card by Ozwald Boateng in 2004. The design combined the intricacies found on banknotes and on the Coutts cheque book with aspects of the British countryside.

“It was refreshing to be asked by Coutts to design something I have never done before,” said Stella. “It is a design area that has been overlooked in the past and it’s about time you get to spend your hard earned money with an account card that looks good.”
