Whether you’re looking for a gift or looking for a new bag to add to your own collection, a customized bag adds a personal touch to your look. And now, your favorite retailer is offering you the chance to play designer and customize your own handbag.
According to Glamour, J.Crew just announced a line of customizable handbags, coin purses, and key fobs and tags that allow shoppers to inject their own personality into their bags. The design process works this way, according to J.Crew: first, you select a item in the color and style of your choice. After adding a three-character monogram, you wrap up the design process by “adding some extras,” which can include everything from coin purses to bag tags.
J.Crew’s head of women’s design Somsack Sikhounmuong told Glamour that quality was of prime importance when creating the line. “When designing these handbags, the most important features I considered were the quality, the personalization, and the sense of fun while also keeping in mind the form and function of every design,” he said.
And quality, form and function is certainly what they delivered: whether a handbag or an accessory, each piece is crafted in genuine Italian leather and some styles are even done in Italian calf hair.
Glamour says that the handbag collection includes a crossbody camera-bag style called the Signet Bag, which retails for $128, as well as a tote bag that’s available for $178. Bag accessories — which include coin purses, key fobs and bag tags — start at $8 and go up to $50, according to Glamour.
