#1: Monogramming is its specialty.
These days, you can personalise everything from a bag to a bottle of perfume. So why not do the same for accessories like mobile phone covers, luggage tags and cosmetic pouches? The brand’s monogramming choices are extensive: You can add initials or your name (up to four letters) for free, or choose emoticons like hearts and smileys, all rendered in gold or silver foil.
#2: Nothing is above $100.
A card sleeve retails for $42, while passport covers are $51 and pouches range from $59.90 to $69.90. It’s a price point that’s intentional: founder Winnie Lim said she decided to establish the brand after wanting to provide a more affordable option for people to buy personalised goods, a service that many luxury labels offer.
#3: Everything is made of saffiano leather.
The brand’s entire repertoire of products are made of quality saffiano leather, a material that top fashion brands regularly use as well. Sourced and manufactured in Hong Kong, the products are locally monogrammed by skilled craftsmen (we’ve seen the monogramming machine with our own eyes, and it does take a deft hand and a precise eye to operate).
#4: Its newest material lends a classy, elegant touch.
Recognising it as a key trend for Fall/Winter ’16, the brand’s limited edition design, launched last month, is available for the Eclipse clutch, Beyond pouch, Spectra card case and Duo Venus card sleeve. Fashion-forward folks will dig its timeless appeal.
#5: Their products will cover almost all your needs.
What’s most impressive about the brand: How it’s launched an extensive array of product offerings and a wide variety of colour combinations (burgundy, nude, navy, blue, pink and black), all in just one year. Call it savvy business sense or a calculated risk, but Luxemono’s approach to personalised goods is one that has proven successful – and shows no signs of letting up.
