Prada's Cheeky Take On Those Monogrammed Backpacks

The concept of monogramming usually brings to mind Lands' End embroidered mock turtlenecks and vom-worthy, his-and-hers initialed bath towels, but Prada has somehow managed to make us think again via a fun, modern take on personalization. Beginning January 15, a Made To Order "Lettering" Service with a customizable attachment of Prada monogrammed initials will be available exlclusively online and in twelve Prada stores worldwide. Like the Girl Scout patches we coveted in junior high with the glam quotient upped by, like, a million, the saffiano leather letters come in a multitude of colors and graphic motifs. Affix them onto Prada backpacks, trolleys, and shopping bags for a killer military/high-school-football-letterman-jacket/prepster look that'll set you apart from the masses and ensure you never lose your stuff, either. Practical and pretty damn cool? We'll take it.
