Cool New Ways To Rock A Monogram

Share

Nothing puts your own stamp on a look like a monogram, but if you’re anything like us, you gravitate toward edgy iterations rather than the classic script you associate with your grandmother. And while technically a monogram involves one’s initials, why not consider a more modern and creative approach to personalization via a favored mantra, funny phrase or graphic logo you’d like to share with the world? To that end, here are four cool new ways to customize your closet. So go ahead, express yourself.

Take your leather jacket to the next level with The Mighty Company. Its moto-inspired designs are unique unto themselves, but the option to personalize (for an extra $150) via initials, an artful design or a play on words (a look recently spotted on Gigi Hadid) is what's really fresh.

Monogram

Monogram, a new label by husband-and-wife designer duo Lisa Mayock and Jeff Halmos, is the non-monogram monogram route that allows you to express yourself, from tongue-in-cheek text to politically driven graphics, without the added cost of personalizing.

Gucci

For those wanting to up the luxury ante, Gucci has debuted a DIY service enabling customers to add punk-inspired extras to the brand's classic Dionysus bag, with more options to come (Ace sneakers, Princetown shoes, ready to wear). Inspired by Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s philosophy that the way you dress should feel authentic, these one-of-a-kind treatments are available at the Gucci flagship in Milan with additional boutiques offering the service come November. In other words, mark your calendars!
