As always my bag arrived very quickly and so beautifully wrapped.
Simple but elegant.
Extraordinary but classic,
A wonderful piece of Melbourne ‘s creativity and a testament to craftsmanship in Australia
I purchased the Florence East West bag. Wonderfully smart bag to take to an interview or for that night out, Florence is large enough to hold all your essentials, phone, change purse, cards, glasses etc. Beautiful leather and the lining is a stunner. Hardware suits the bag, subtle and not flash and gaudy. I am ecstatic with my Florence!!
So glad you love it Shauna. It is indeed a show stopper - thank you for your wonderful review.
This is such a stunning understated classic bag in navy. I love mine, especially the red interior as it’s so organised and easy to store & find all the essentials in a bag. It’s the perfect size too! The hardware is equally stunning - it’s my favourite bag.
We are so glad you love it and treasure it. Thank you.
Just received my Florence East West such a stunning bag. So generous in size. I can fit everything and more in it!
The black tipping on the navy is exquisite!
Thanks again Cecily Clune!
So good to hear Julie G. Thank you!!
Understated luxury for everyday living
Inspired by the Medici of Florence
The iconic hardware is inspired by the heavy arched and bolt studded doors of medieval Europe and the Medici of Florence coat of arms.
We love how the 14k soft gold plated handle, turn lock and the exquisite bee charm, double as jewellery. Combined with matte croc-embossed leather, they are an unbeatable combination.

Handcrafted for enduring style
When you purchase a statement handbag, you’re investing in a high-end product to serve you for years. It’s important to select a beautifully crafted piece with classic lines to see you through this season and beyond, to give you maximum value for your investment.
Handcrafted from carefully excellent materials, the Florence East West is designed to enchant and endure. Tough croc printed leather for the stunning exterior and treated calf leather for the luxe interior, ensure the Florence East West Bag will stand the test of time, both in longevity and in looks.
A truly artisanal bag
Every component of the Florence East West has been carefully designed by Cecily Clune and made by artisans to create something unique.
The lock was designed by Cecily Clune but tooled by specialist hardware engineers in Rhode Island, USA. It had to have real rivets and resemble a medieval door or shield and be coated in soft buttery 14k gold.
Made with care and intent
Libby, our Creative Director, supervised the colouring of the leather in the tannery. Here you can see the black 'tipping' being applied over the dark navy leather to give it a subtle hue.
Every detail was managed to make it an artisanal bag of the highest quality.
Luxury has never been so versatile
It’s not often that an exclusive designer handbag can be called versatile. Luxury bags are designed specifically to be shown off, with more thought given to the way the piece looks rather than how it performs during the whirl of everyday life.
The Florence East West is made to last with coated luxury hardware to resist abrasion, textured leather that absorbs bumps and scratches and luxurious leather lining that will stay the distance.
“We set out to create excellence. We want to make products of beauty that endure. It's that simple and we won't compromise.”

The bag is actually smaller than it looks online which is a good thing! It’s just a perfect size for making it super versatile. It’s big enough for all my essentials to wear to work (phone, keys, 2 pairs of glasses, wallet etc) but small enough for going out, too. I love the handles and internal key ring, details that make it so comfy to wear and use. Design details, quality and workmanship is next level. I absolutely love it 😍
What a stunning bag! Quality of leather, workmanship and style is on par (if not better) with top end luxury brands. Authentic, luxurious and very comfy to wear. Packaging is lovely too. I am very impressed.
I am so happy with my Katherine bag. It arrived promptly, and was very well packaged and presented. The standard of workmanship, and attention to detail throughout the bag is exceptional. It is quite compact, but easily fits the essentials, without a problem. I will be using this bag for many years to come.
Thankyou Cecily Clune.
I received my pink Luna bag and immediately used it the same day. Roomy enough for my phone and other important items
I love it
This is my second purchase from Cecily Clune. My recent purchase The Zippy large wallet is everything you would expect and more. Absolutely love it.
I recently bought the tan clutch .
I took it to a lunch and it fitted everything
I needed in it . Phone , purse , glasses .
Very happy with it . Jennifer W-Owens .
Beautifully made bags in very original styles.
Bags are as described so check the measurements & you won’t be disappointed.
The Luna bag is small but fits all my essentials.
My iPhone pro fits in the back pocket when I want it close at hand, but only upright not horizontally.
I’m so glad I purchased the Ultramatte Lizard print. Very unique & a lovely tactile feel to it.
I’m 172cm & it is very comfortable to wear crossbody or as a shoulder bag with it’s adjustable strap.
My second Cecily Clune bag & it won’t be my last.
Stunning bag. It’s a beautiful and functional make with a luxurious feel and look. Its fits my small wallet, keys, phone and lipstick with ease. The structured nature of the bag, the finishings and the lining, while simple things are what makes this bag special to me. The fun colour options are the cherry on top, uplifting even the most basic of outfits. It’s my second CC bag and each purchase is attached to a special occasion so it’s even more treasured.
I recently received my first Cecily Clune's handbag . I am very pleased with it but haven't actually had an occasion to use it yet . I am sure I will get many lovely comments about it.

This bag is well crafted and the leather is so luxurious to touch. The shape is like a cross breed between vanity and bucket bag, that makes it unique and timeless.
Katherine will always get the 2nd look and those who are into bags will wonder what bag you are wearing! Lol
I bought my first Cecile Clune bag as it was recommended to me by a friend after showing picture of it on Instagram . I fell in love with it the minute I opened the box . It was a very beautifully made bag , so structured , not bulky and such a stand out piece and when I wore it I received a lot of compliments ! Highly recommend this as it’s absolutely a luxury bag without the price tag of Louis Vuitton . The lining and materials used were absolutely high quality .
Beautiful purse everything I hoped it would be. Top quality. Just gorgeous. Thankyou
I've been on the hunt for a great clutch that is fashionable yet practical. When I saw the William Clutch, I knew that was it! It did not disappoint at all. The leather is beautiful and very similar to the leather used on my Tod's wallet. I love how the interior of the clutch is lined too. It's just big enough for all things.
Luxury, design, quality and practicality.
