For some, the satisfaction of a purchase lies in the fact that the item was made with utmost care and of a reputable source. For others, the satisfaction comes from the idea that the item was personalised to their standards and preference. Well, those who want to get both no longer have to choose. Some luxury brands have stepped up to give the combined experience. Here are just some of the ways you can get a taste of personalised luxury.
There’s something about owning a pair of Prada shoes, but there’s nothing quite like owning one that’s uniquely yours. Prada now offers custom shoes, and there are roughly 8,000 ways to do it. The catch is the service is only available at the Prada store at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.
Prada also offered something that’s close to home. During a pop-up that ran until 12 October at TANGS, Prada offered guests the opportunity to customise their bags with leather patches.
Now, this is a shoe customisation service you can get anywhere — well, anywhere there’s a TOD’s boutique and at tods.com. You can customise your own Gommino, which is TOD’s most iconic style. Personalise your pair by choosing the type and colour of the leather as well as the accessories that will be included.
