Imagine the personalized fun of a Build-a-Bear workshop crossed with the sophisticated artistry of an Italian leather atelier and you get a sense of the appeal of Mon Purse, an online design-your-own luxury handbag and leather accessories brand which offers a mind-boggling 10 billion possible design combinations. Using online 3D modelling software, you can conjure your own classic bag from a variety of shapes (tote, bucket, shopper, cross body, clutch, top handle bags, etc), leathers (grainy, smooth, suede), linings, straps and metal hardware, all in a kaleidoscopic palette of colours. Each item’s final stamp of distinction comes with the application of a discreet monogram. If you know what you want, the process can take as little as four minutes. If you’re indecisive by nature, expect hours of experimental fun. The full personalisation service is available exclusively in Selfridges (London, Manchester and Birmingham).
