As Coco Chanel famously stated, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” Fashion is all about wearing your own unique personality, externally in your outfit and accessories, and the current trend of personalisation and monogramming is a fantastic way to demonstrate exactly who you are, in a subtle, understated way.
In a world of social media, we are more and more driven to publicly express who we are. By wearing unique and personal items of clothing and accessories, not only do we differentiate ourselves from the crowd, but our ensembles also act as a call to like-minded individuals.
This could be the reason personalisation has become such a huge trend in fashion over the last few years. From Adidas 3D printing midsoles unique to the wearer’s running gait, to online retailers creating curated collections for customers according to algorithms, to Kim Kardashian’s bespoke George Condo hand-painted Hermès Birkin; one-of-a-kind items and outfits are all the rage.
And perhaps the simplest (and one of the most beautiful!) ways to tailor your wardrobe to make it uniquely “you” is monogramming. Monograms were traditionally used for family crests, stamped on luggage and other household items. Monogramming was a way to demonstrate a level of class, ownership and to create a legacy as only quality items expected to last for generations were monogrammed.
Some of the most famous brands in the world picked up this tradition and ran with it, with Louis Vuitton monogramming their bags with the iconic “LV” from when his shop was opened in Paris in the late 1800s.
It’s the small details which give your favourite bags a sense of class and style, like delicate hardware and textured fabrics, and monogramming is the perfect way to subtly transform your bag from a wardrobe staple to a real statement piece.
One of the most cost-effective ways to personalise your handbag or nappy bag is by monogramming your initials, a special date or your full name onto your bag, turning your every day favorite, a truly a one-of-a-kind statement piece.
