What: Longchampâ€™s Le Pliage bag
Reality, the canvas Longchamp has become so ubiquitous, itâ€™s like the Seven jeans of bags. But itâ€™s functional yet so classic that you canâ€™t help but want one. Or two or three. So in this day and age of one-of-a-kind everything, how do you make yourself stand out? you can now custom-design your very ownLe Pliage bagâ€”choose a size (from purse- to clutch- to travel-size), color combo (pick from 15 hues), handle length, metal details (nickel, bronze, gold), the works. The best part? Getting your name (or whatever you desire) embroidered onto the bag, with a choice of three fonts. Another plus is the option to have your initials embossed on the flap. And the whole process couldnâ€™t be easier; in fact, itâ€™s kind of addictive. In two weeks, when someone asks you where you got your Longchamp in that design, you can answer, â€œItâ€™s bespoke.â€
Prices: From about $35 to $140, depending on size and whether you want to let the whole world know the bag is yours and yours only with the embossing ($5.50) and/or embroidery ($11).
