Personal services

Oh, how I’m loving the monogramming trend bubbling under. First it was Pringle, then Globetrotter, now Louis Vuitton at Selfridges is offering its Mon Monogram service on Speedy bags bought from its pop-up concept store between now and 25th June. More low-tech is embroiderer Helen Perks who offers a monogramming service from her studio at 23 Noel Street, W1 (020 7439 4230). I’m thinking 24-point initials on a T-shirt, cardigan or boxer shorts – discreet and sweet.
