In this day and age where everybody pretty much has access to the same luxuries as the next person, it is becoming harder and harder to stand out. Pieces in a limited edition collection can run into the hundreds (or thousands), plus they don’t really cost that much anymore (which allows just about everyone else to be able to own it as well).
So how does one stand out from the crowd? One way is customisation, which is more than just embossing your initials on your beloved leather wallet. Nowadays, you can also have your initials (and choice of colours) painted on bags (Goyard, Louis Vuitton), have your spectacles fitted with your initials (Prada) and have bags made in the colours of your choosing (Tod’s).
Now you can get your shoes customised too. Introducing the new Car Shoe Monogram 2.0 Special Edition, which allows you to include up to 3 alphabet cubes per shoe at an additional SGD10 each. You can customise any loafers they’ve got, from the ones in calf leather (priced at SGD690 a pair) to croc leather ones (SGD3120 a pair).
And since I’m already a fan (they are super comfy), I already know what my 7th pair will say. Just need to find time now to head down to ION Orchard.
