(Ph. Tommy Ton)
In a landscape where anyone with an internet connection and access to style.com can get their hands on the latest must-have items, and social media has made true individuality all but obsolete, personalisation is the last hope for a really unique fashion item.
Whether it's monogramming at Louis Vuitton or high street store Whistles or Anya Hindmarch's leather stickers, adorning your bag with items that make it yours is so en vogue right now it hurts.
It's so now, but also has oodles of nostalgia, did anyone else make their mark on their school bags with graffiti, stickers and charms? Obviously these grown-up accoutrements are slightly more chi-chi than the Disney keyrings of days gone by; a Fendi bag bug will set you back upwards of £500.
Whatever your budget, though, customise your sac - DIY it or go more upmarket but don't hold back. Take inspiration from the street style at Milan Fashion Week and make it personal! It might stop your handbag getting nicked... you won't be caught in a game of sartorial snap and it will definitely make you smile.
