Are you a Kelly or a Birkin?

If you believe many bloggers, there exists only two types of handbag people - Hermes Kelly or Hermes Birkin.

Jane Birkin was cool and sensuous. Her bag, the Birkin, is relaxed with its Moorish arches, slouchier form and an open top.

The iconic Kelly bag stands for quiet wealth and understated elegance - everything Grace Kelly was. It is structured, minimal and closed.
Both have classic style. Can we be both? – sometimes Kelly and sometimes Birkin.
Cecily Clune thinks so.
Even when we are running around on 'athleisure' Sundays, a classic structured bag can elevate your look into something a whole lot more polished. Gigi Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are experts at this!  They know that the Kelly (like no other) or a luxury structured bag can pull it all together. We love our Florence East West or the Alice Bucket Bag  - carried either by the top handle or crossbody with the adjustable strap - to bring some precision to your look. It says something about you. Of course, a structured elegant bag is the ultimate professional and corporate accessory.
The Birkin, on the other hand, is more relaxed and is equally at home at the office or as a run-around mom. I have seen Birkins filled with diapers, diaries, water bottles, baby wipes and you name it - everything else we need each day. Art is married with practicality. Our Avoca Street Bag is a relaxed and versatile bag that can be worn as a clutch, crossbody or shoulder bag.
The underlying criteria for both Kelly and Birkin are their exceptional quality of materials, their assured shape and excellent hardware, albeit at a decent cost!
Structured or slouchy, classic style is classic style and is never under or overdressed.
Cecily Clune has it in spades.
