While many will claim that logomania is the season’s biggest trend, the fact is that fashion’s love affair with monograms spans over a hundred years. It’s not hard to see why: just as we all identify with certain cultures and tribes — manifesting in the ways we dress and speak — these highly designed versions of brand names are the most overt manner one can pledge allegiance to their favourite label. And this F/W ’18, Bonia makes a strong case for repping theirs.
Riffing off the pizzazz known to opera performances, the brand’s D’oro monogram collection comes framed with gilded, bronze trimmings (from an Italian tannery, no less) and contrasted by a deep, red hue — lending their now iconic logo bag a head-turning effect. This is tempered with the classic shapes the collection spans — there’s the quintessential sling along with satchels that can be worn as a crossbody or toted like a top handle — making them the versatile, statement arm candy you’ll want to wear loud and proud, ASAP.
