Spend 5: Alyce Tran, The Daily Edited

Monogrammed accessories are having a moment and if we’re really being honest here, one label is responsible for spearheading the trend. When it comes to accessible designs, perfectly curated for the modern woman, three words come to mind – THE DAILY EDITED. Founded in 2011 by Alyce Tran and Tania Liu, the label has gone from a small pin board project to one of the most sought after accessory labels in Australia. It’s all but impossible to scroll through your Instagram feed without seeing a tde. piece in the hands of a celebrity or trendsetter.

While numerous brands have followed suit, we all know nothing beats an original. There is something unequivocally amazing and enticing about getting your hands on the original game changer. The label that put a personalised approach back into accessorising without sending our credit cards below the red line (Because while a L.V. would be nice, some of us have bills to pay). Clean lines, timeless colours, quality leather and impeccable craftsmanship have all made tde. THE ‘go-to’ monogram label.

Here we spend 5 with company director, Alyce Tran.
