This is what we’re planning on doing when buying our next LV: customizing it. With the Mon Monogram program, which started in late October, shoppers can customize one of two handbags and have them made and delivered from France. Shipping generally takes less than four weeks but could take up to eight.
The South Coast Plaza boutique is one of just three in the nation – including Beverly Hills and New York – that is offering the service. Sales associates assist customers at a computer station where there are mix-and-match swatches.
Shoppers can choose between the Speedy 30 and the larger Keepall Bandouliere 55 handbags. Customization includes up to three characters, a choice of placement and type of stripe, and two choices among 16 colors.
Imagine rocking a custom Keepall 55… The cost of all this? Add 30% to the price before VAT and there you have it. Worth the money because you create an ever lasting piece of luggage that’s unique and one of a kind.
