As of late, I’ve been noticing more and more fashionable items that are customizable to the wearer’s liking. Though there’s always been Etsy for a one-on-one conversation with an individual seller (“Hey, can you make me one in this color and with a pocket?”), there are now more companies than ever offering options for their customers (beyond just sizing). And some of those items are also on the luxury-end of the scale: clothing or accessories you can customize to the tune of a couple hundred dollars or more. (That Fendi DIY NeedlePoint Baguette ($995) or Fendi Paint-Your-Own Baguette ($585) from last year spring to mind…;-)
Here’s a couple more I’ve noticed lately:
Sneaker Customization Kit
Paint your sneakers any way you want and add a dose of artistic boldness to your feet. Includes sneaker wipes (to clean them of dirt or oils prior to painting), 5 paints specifically formulated for sneaker leather and to withstand flexing, a paintbrush and an extra pot for mixing colors. (Sneakers not included;-) And of course you’re not limited to jazzing up those high-top basketball sneaks either…or even limited to sneakers! (Say you have a white leather bag you’d like to add some custom art to? No problem!)
Though I’ve written about it before, Sheyna.com is a site where you can customize your jewelry into literally hundreds of combinations, choosing gold or silver, gemstone briolettes, chains, etc. – to make your own, one-of-a-kind DIY necklace, earrings, or rings. Become a jewelry designer with just simple drag-and-drop!
Havaianas, the name synonymous with summer and flip-flops, has just launched a new feature where you can choose the sole color, strap color, and crystals and pins on the straps – plus see the combinations that celebrities have made and get inspired!
Seen any other customizable stuff online? Please share with everyone in the comments!
