Free L.K.BEN­NETT x bo­yarde gift

You know the one we’re talk­ing about: the bag ev­ery in­flu­encer flaunted on Insta that was off-lim­its to the rest of us. Now, how­ever, it’s a dif­fer­ent story…

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS - WORDS: Max­ine eggenberger

gone are the days when cus­tomised pieces were re­served for A-lis­ters and in­flu­encers – per­son­al­i­sa­tion has be­come big news on the high street too, en­abling those of us on mod­est bud­gets (read 99 per cent of us) to get a piece of the beau­ti­fully be­spoke ac­tion. Noth­ing makes us feel more spe­cial, af­ter all, than a cus­tom­made item, be it a mono­grammed neck­lace, an em­broi­dered bomber or, in this case, the bag we all wanted but couldn’t have.

Let us take you on a jour­ney back in time to 2015, when ba­si­cally ev­ery blog­ger worth not­ing was be­sot­ted with a cer­tain tex­tured leather cross-body com­plete with stun­ning, rain­bowhued ini­tials. As the beau­ti­ful bags be­gan flood­ing our feeds, we set out on a quest to find the source, and it didn’t take long to track the bag back to L.k. ben­nett. The bag in ques­tion was the la­bel’s now-iconic Mariel style, which was avail­able to buy, but what of those ini­tials? Turns out, the luxe style be­he­moth com­mis­sioned ac­claimed artist Bo­yarde to hand-paint let­ters onto each bag for a very se­lect pool of in­flu­encers, which re­sulted in the bags be­com­ing one of the most cov­eted pieces of the year.

The pain of not be­ing able to count our­selves among this stylish group had yet to fade when we were given the news we’d been wait­ing for: the bag was be­ing brought to the masses. Yep, you can now pur­chase your own Bo­yarde ini­tials in sticker form, which is where our ex­clu­sive of­fer comes in. We’ve teamed up with L.k. ben­nett to give you two free ini­tial stick­ers when you in­vest in the iconic Mariel cross-body bag, or any other full-price arm candy that takes your fancy. First and fore­most, we rec­om­mend treat­ing your­self (obvs), but just think what an amaz­ing Christ­mas gift it’ll make for some­one you love. Be­cause you and your girls de­serve to be granted VIP sta­tus, too.
