3. Gucci coup
It’s life’s little luxuries that count right? Nah, it’s the big ones. Gucci’s DIY service allows you to choose the embroideries on your Dionysus bag. Alas, for now it’s only available in the house’s flagship Via Montenapoleone store in Milan. Check your Frequent Flyers, quick sticks.
4. Marvellous monogram
