Amex Updates the Centurion Card

The world’s most exclusive credit card is about to look even cooler

If you’re one of the few Amex Centurion cardholders (if so, we should talk), there's exciting news coming your way. American Express is reinvigorating the look of the card, and they're giving you multiple options to choose from—including a wearable Prada card.

According to Uncrate, the company is partnering with two artists to put a new spin on the iconic card. The Rem Koolhaas x Centurion Art Card uses drawings from his unfinished Boompjes project, which aimed to redevelop a war-torn section of Rotterdam where his OMA firm was founded. The Kehinde Wiley x Centurion Art Card, on the other hand, repurposes the lush greenery from his painting Princess Victoir of Saxe-Coburg Gotha.

In addition to the cards, the Centurion Card's chip is also available hidden within a unisex Prada bracelet constructed from scratch-resistant black Saffiano leather.

Of course, if this sounds appealing, it's worth noting that the American Express Centurion Card isn't attainable through application—holders need to secure an invitation and pay a $10,000 initiation fee to access what Forbes describes as “unrivaled perks and benefits.
