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…
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.
