Do you want to design your own handbag?
I’m pretty sure that the answer to this is YES!
Allow me to introduce you to Mon Purse. Founded in early 2014 by Lana Hopkins, CEO (and badass #GIRLBOSS + nice girl) – Mon Purse is an Australian based ‘design-your-own’ handbag and leather accessories brand that creates beautiful custom products, using the highest quality European leather. The company was born out of Hopkins’ inability to find the kind of handbag quality and design to satisfy her. She saw an opportunity to create a disruptive model to provide fully customizable leather handbags that target the affordable luxury handbag market. Using a state of the art 3D online bag builder, customers are able to select from over 10 billion different variations including leather color, texture, interior linings and premium hardware to design their dream bag or simply add a personal touch with monogramming and extra customization options.
Design Your Own ‘TOTE BAG’?
This is the first bag I 100% designed from start to finish with Mon Purse’s 6 step process.
Step 1: Select a model – I went with the Tote Bag. This is the perfect work bag aka it is laptop friendly.
Step 2: Choose a leather – I went with the Animal Hair on the body with a grainy white leather shoulder strap and grainy white leather top handles.
Step 3: Select a lining – I went with orange suede.
Step 4: Select your metal detail color – I went with gold.
Step 5: Monogram – Always YES
Step 6: Finalise – Check
What do you think?
I added my Fendi Monster WOC for a little extra flare (above).
This grainy leather envelope clutch with suede lining caught my eye at the Mon Purse Gallery pop-up shop in our San Francisco Bloomingdale’s. This stunning clutch boasts a sophisticated envelope design. You can personalize the clutch with your monogram in gold, silver, gunmetal, rose gold or blind emboss. I had my KatWalkSF logo hand painted on at the launch of the pop-up shop and could not be MORE pleased with how it turned out! I mean how did someone paint that by HAND!?!
