Mon Purse to launch first US store

mon-purse_064Customised handbag retailer, Mon Purse, is set to launch its first stand-alone US store.

The local design-your-own bag online retailer will replace Dior, which will be relocating its store within the centre, at US shopping destination Short Hills Shopping Mall in New Jersey.

“This is an incredible milestone for Mon Purse,” said Lana Hopkins, founder of Mon Purse. “We are extremely excited about this particular location, because the mall is part of a very rare breed.”

Hopkins said Short Hills Shopping Mall boasts an AAA rating and an unparalleled shopping experience for customers — ultimately. “Experience is everything for us,” she said.

According to Hopkins, the reaction and traction from the US market in just five months since opening their first Bloomingdale’s store has been phenomenal.

“Our expansion into the UK and US is first and foremost a humbling and inspiring experience,” she said. “The success validates our plans to further grow the brand in the US.”

Mon Purse, founded in late 2014, is a design your own handbag and leather accessories brand, with over 10 billion design combinations. The retailer offers both monogramming and on-site painting to create completely bespoke designs.
