We recently had the joy of collaborating on a photoshoot with Mon Purse, another awesome Australian startup. Mon Purse create beautiful monogrammed purses, bags and other accessories. At Paperlust we love personalising things, whether it’s personalised Christmas cards or a personalised wedding from the wedding stationery itself to the envelope inserts and other finishing details. Mon Purse shares this love, offering stylish, personalised accessories. What better pairing than that?!
Mon Purse pieces are ideal for bridal party gifts to the bridesmaids from the bride and groom. These beauties check every box: They’re made of premium European leather which is both sturdy and soft and produced using environmentally friendly processes. They are genuine luxury goods, but won’t break the bank. They are the perfect thank you gift to your bridesmaids because they will actually get used for months and even years after the event. Mon Purse even makes it possible to design your wedding logo into the monogram if you really want to commemorate the occasion. But best of all, you can give all your bridesmaids the same thing but perfectly customised to their tastes.
Like Paperlust, Mon Purse gives its customers complete control over the design process. Their online tool walks you through each step, letting you see exactly how each option looks on the bag, purse or clutch. Not only can you monogram the piece with up to eight characters, but you can also choose tonnes of other things. What size would you like? Do you want a wrist strap? Fringing? Metal studs? What finish would you like the leather to have? What colour leather? (There are over thirty to choose from!) What colour suede lining inside? Would you like your metal details in gold, silver, rose gold or gunmetal? The choices seem endless, but the fully interactive preview tool makes it easy to decide what you like and what options go together best.
We’re not the only ones who love Mon Purse. The company is quickly taking the world by storm, with Mon Purse products and in-store monogramming now available in Bloomingdales NY, and Selfridges London and Manchester. If you’re lucky enough to live in one of these wonderful cities, it’s even easier to get your hands on them!
For this collaboration, we wanted to focus on all the things Paperlust and Mon Purse have in common: we love personalisation, we love colour, and we love gold detailing! It just makes sense to match your invitations to your bridesmaid gifts in this way, since it will remind them of the big day every time they use it. You can match the entire colour scheme, or just stick to a few details like we have here and leave the colour to what you know your friends will love most. Since gold just screams luxury, it’s perfect for the little details, whether that’s a raised foil heading on a menu or the zipper and monogram on your custom leather pouch.
We love Mon Purse, and we’re pretty sure that after looking at all this eye candy, you will too.
