The lust for monogram
There is a school of thought that those who covet, and carry, statement fashion are but mere advertising boards for a brand. For the fierce individual how very, very gauche! So you would think.
Some brands are so iconic, so coveted, and so popular they can totally eclipse the need for individuality, sucking you in to a vortex of lust and wanting.
There's no shame in carrying these brands when they come at such a premium and have been consistently coveted for decades. Still, if you fancy yourself a bit of an alternative trendsetter you can try switching it up with a damier, a bamboo, or a vintage piece that comes with the gravitas of the most coveted designer pieces yet none of the "in your face" markings that the rest of us fashion sheeple love so dearly :)).
