A, B, and C might be the first letters you learned — but your own initials might have taken precedent. As soon as you were able to wield a crayon, you were probably scribbling your monogram on every surface you could reach. Truth be told, we haven't matured much and still find ourselves itching to stamp our initials on everything we own.
That might explain why we're so jazzed about Mary Katrontzou's new line of ABC totes. Keeping in step with her brand's signatures, the bags are a delightful mélange of prints and colors surrounding one of 26 letters. Pick your own initial or go for something a bit more cryptic. Better yet, wrangle a posse of your friends to spell something out, like what Katrantzou did in March to fête the line's debut at London's Wallace Collection. With a passel of guests picked for their initials, Mary chose to present her new bags on ladies (and a few gents!) who wear their letters proudly. We asked each one to describe what else their letter might mean. Find all 26 folks and their respective alphabet lessons ahead.
