STAUD has been a go-to for fashionistas for the last couple of years, known for its trendy, yet accessible bags and minimalist designs, the brand burst onto our radar and we haven’t looked away since. Now, STAUD is offering a new service that stylish pet-lovers are going to love. Introducing: Custom, hand-painted bags by STAUD, featuring a portrait of your beloved pet.
The just-launched service is available via STAUD’s website, and customers can choose from two of the brand’s most popular styles— the Shirley bag, or the Bissett bag. Both bags on their own are incredibly reasonable, and even with the hand-painted service, all styles remain under $500, ranging from $310 to $450. For comparisons sake, a plain leather Bissett bag will set you back $350 while the custom-painted option costs $450. Discover the options via STAUD.com.
While designers have long been inspired by their pets (remember the Louis Vuitton x Grace Coddington collection, the Givenchy dog bag or Balenciaga’s line of pet bags?), this custom portrait service is the first of its kind. After submitting a purchase, the buyer must e-mail a full body photo of their pet to the brand’s customer care address. Additionally they should allow for 3-4 weeks time after placing orders to receive their new masterpiece.
