We’ve said it before and we will say it again; if you want to make it your own, then just put your name on it. Personalized bags make you feel special. After all, what could be more personal than your own imprimatur? And what could be more fun than designing a personal statement to convey ; I am loud and proud like this big block type on a chic little camera bag or quiet and like my cards close to the breast like this lovely gold foil initial on our favorite classic bamboo handle bag ?
There are now so many ways to put a stamp on a canvas beach picnic tote, an elegant black asymetric clutch or imprint a new favorite grey vegan suede tote for the transitional season. Parker Thatch makes a revolutionary camo medium tote that we can see going around the world with your name on it and those of us who recall a good prep statement when we see one , hearken bag to the Bermuda Bag . We like the idea of putting Holden Caulfield’s initials on one of the three covers it comes with.
Weekend totes are the perfect placement for a good monogram that you will spot easily on the carousel at Heathrow or under the Greyhound to Camp Hiawatha. We like this one in denim or that old wonderfully evocative tote from Lands End–it holds a weekend’s worth of old New Yorker Magazines and several changes of sport shoes and with your name emblazoned on the side, none compares!
