Being the handbag lover that I am, I’m always on the lookout for new and beautiful handbag designs. But when I came across this new company called Laudi Vidni, I found myself completely overwhelmed with awe. Here we have a company that allows you, the handbag enthusiast, to design your very own handbag. And here we have a company that saw an opportunity to do what other designer labels were not — empowering women. With a Laudi Vidni handbag, the whole idea of logos being a symbol of status has been completely thrown out the window. What you end up with is a luxurious handbag that defines you and only YOU.
Laudi Vidni, which is simply “individual” spelled backwards, is the brainchild of Grace Tsao-Wu and Laura Kofoid. These Harvard Business School graduates were brought together through their mutual love of fashion. Their business venture began when another entrepreneur sold his idea for a customized-leather handbag business to them for $1. The two women immediately fell in love with the spirit behind the idea. And with a lot of hard work and a little TLC, Laudi Vidni was born!
Now it seems as though I have fallen in love with the spirit behind the idea as well. I took the website for a test drive and, I must say, it is awesome! I have seen other design-your-own handbag websites before, but this one is by far the best. I love how you can choose different leathers for different parts of the bag. And with so many gorgeous leathers to choose from, the possibilities seem endless. But what I love most about Laudi Vidni, is how easy it is to use their website. In fact, it’s as easy as 1,2,3!
1. Select your style!
There are currently 8 different styles to choose from. Their starting prices range from $85 (for the Poco Wristlet) to $495 (for the Cambiare Vertical Shopper). I really like how the key features of each bag are bulleted on the left-hand side of the screen.
2. Pick your leather(s), lining, and harware!
There are 40 different leathers to choose from, including a variety of premium leathers which can add to the final price of the handbag. You can take a closer look at each leather simply by clicking on the “view details” buttons that look like tiny magnifying glasses. I love how you can simply click on the part of the bag you wish to select a leather for. The design process is so easy and straight-forward!
3. Try it on!
By clicking on the “preview” button on the left side of the screen, you can take a closer look at your design. You can also try the handbag on using a model that comes in three different heights. This feature really helps with the decision process because you can get a better idea of what the handbag would look like on.
So there you have it! Now all there is left to do is design a handbag that is uniquely yours! In fact, that is exactly what I am going to do right now! I must admit, I really love that Pavan style for myself. It is unlike anything else I own and I absolutely adore the ruching at the top. This bag looks like it could easily transition between day and night, perfect for what I’m wanting it for.
Now if only I could decide between the Washed Metallic Leather (left) or the Storm Premium Leather (right).
What do you girls think?
Once I have made this very important decision, I’ll be placing my order. And, of course, I’ll do a special post on Bag Bliss so everyone can see how it looks in real life!
