    Question Laudi Vidni Handbags: Thinking Outside the Label. (part 1: help me pick!)

    Laudi Vidni Handbags: Thinking Outside the Label

    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!

    Great Idea.

    However, sometimes a bag looks great in a picture and when you see it in real you are not so impressed. Trying to custom make your own handbag could be a costly mistake. I also wonder if these bags have any resale value, since they reflect an individual's specific taste

    I've played around with this website a few months ago and it is fun! There's a design to suit everyone's fancy. I just wish I could see an end product IRL to observe its quality and finishing but I guess this is where you come in bRs!!
    I've read around the net that so far it's been good words but it would be nice to have an in depth review.
    To your q bRs, I say 'storm' as most metallic leather does not age well. There are exceptions of course but since it's an under the radar brand, I'd play it safe.
    Looking forward to see your new bag

    Hmm... decisions, decisions.
    The majority of the people here on TBF say the washed metallic and the majority on Bag Bliss say storm. LOL!
