More often than not, when shopping for clothes and beauty products we choose off-the-peg. Ready to wear is easy, familiar and simple to buy. But what about those times when you want something extra special? Whether it’s a treat for yourself or a present for someone else, bespoke gifts are incredibly thoughtful. They are designed for either especially for you, or the person you have in mind. Let’s take a look at some custom made marvels that will put you in the league of the A-List when it comes to style.
Perhaps you have a fragrance you have worn for a long time, but it’s no longer available. Or maybe there are certain scents that remind you of your Mum, or your friends or even a special moment in time. If you can’t find a ready-to-wear fragrance that exactly matches what you’re looking for, why not consider going bespoke? Floris of London offers two-hour appointments with a perfumer. Here, you have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of fragrance bases to create a bespoke scent just for you. Or you could take a trip to Grasse in France (the perfume capital of the world) and visit one of the iconic perfumeries there. Alongside a trained perfumer, you will create your own fragrance, choosing base, heart and top notes. Or you can make your own perfume online at Unique Fragrance. This website lets you choose different notes and bottle designs, and you can even name your perfume too.
2. Custom shades of lipstick
Do you ever struggle to find that perfect shade of lipstick? Perhaps you have an exact idea of the colour you want but just can’t find one in-store that matches your vision. Or maybe your beloved shade has been discontinued, and you want to recreate it. You can use lipstick manufacturers to create your own personalised lipsticks. And buying in high volumes also means you could consider making a business out of it.
3. Tailor made clothes
Here’s a little secret Jennifer Aniston revealed a couple of years ago. Her casual, relaxed style looks so picture perfect because she gets her t-shirts tailored. While we may not go to this extreme, there are some really cool brands offering tailor made clothes and sneakers for the perfect fit. Levi’s offer a service called Made-To-Order-Jeans. Here, you can choose from shades and weight of denim, input your exact measurements and add lots of different details. Both Adidas and Nike also offer super stylish customisation on their sneakers. You can even get your name on them for a true one-of-a-kind pair! And websites such as Indochino and Black Lapel will tailor make suits for you, giving you that perfect, flawless finish. The great thing about having clothes tailor-made is that you can translate the latest trends into your dream wardrobe.
4. Made-to-measure Louboutins
One of our favourite bespoke marvels is the ever luxurious Christian Louboutin made-to-measure service. This exclusive label offers made-to-measure shoes in their Paris Atelier. This personalised experience takes you all the way to Paris to get your pair of perfectly sculpted shoes. You will be expertly measured and also have three-dimensional imprints of your feet taken. You’ll also choose your heel height, toe shape, materials and embellishments. Of course, you’ll also get that signature red-lacquered sole as well. We think this is the ultimate in bespoke fashion.
