Buying less but better with intention
If you are after a handbag that everyone else is wearing or with logos all over it, Cecily Clune bags are not for you. You won’t find anything quite like our handbags on the shelves. Cecily Clune is a market disruptor.
I developed Cecily Clune for all of us who look at Designer Handbags and sigh and wish for an alternate universe where things are beautiful, excellent and affordable.
For me and the brand, it's about curation and intention, buying luxury for the beauty and longevity and buying less but better. Libby Thomson

"I wanted something exceptional - but also affordable - two things that don’t usually go hand in hand – but I couldn’t see why not."
The Alice is an artisanal bag made with exceptional skill and is one of a kind
The shape of both Alice and Forever Alice is made by our master craftsman using a hand-carved wooden block to give its form and to enable our logo to be hand stamped without the leather puckering.
Cecily Clune has created an exquisite and unique piece
Made with intent
Making a bag of this quality is no accident. It takes years of learning the skills and there are no shortcuts. Mr. Oshima and his team worked to solve the problems of creating the unique shape of The Alice bags and their meticulous work is evident in every stitch and hand painted edge. It is rare to find this level of craftsmanship in the world and we at Cecily Clune are honoured to be a part of their workroom.
A bag that exudes confidence
This is a bag that exudes confidence and speaks of quiet luxury.
The Alice Bag, with its clear lines, classic shape and bespoke materials, represents your chance to show the world who you truly are. Bold and unique, yet elegant and timeless, this artful statement handbag is for women seeking sophistication, style and something extra special.
Luxury has never been so versatile
"My passion enables me to personally choose luxurious top grain leathers from a Gold certified Tannery that meets environmental standards, design quality hardware with painstaking care and have it custom plated so it’s never tacky and then make sure everything I design carries ‘stuff’ in an organised secure way. All our bags have to work hard, look fabulous and last." Libby Thomson
The Alice keeps your contents secure with a large zipped pocket, an open pocket, a key clip on a leather thong and a magnetic tab across the top. It is a joy to use with everything being so accessible.
“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 gorgeous details you’ve been searching for...
Alice is a bag for everyday. From first glance, its quality is apparent. It is a joy to own and to carry, bringing effortless style and polish to whatever you choose to wear.
The leather we chose is from Vicenza near Venice in Italy. We selected it because: it has the right body but remains soft; the pleasing regular medium-size pebble grain; and its protective coating. It is also tanned in a GOLD standard tannery that meets environmental standards with the Leather Working Group. This is important to us.
Let customers speak for us
I love having something unique and different from what my friends and others have. I was googling for the unique black hexagon bucket bag shown in Netflix Korean drama 'Dali & Cocky Prince, instead, I found 'Katherine' which looks beautifully crafted.
When I received it, I carefully checked around, the stitches, the brass parts, the liner and the leather... and I really get what it's shown on Cecily website.
'She' is a real Beauty and Elegant. Tilly is also cute. Love it too.
Thanks for Libby for helping me receiving it on time after the first delivery problem with AustPost. Great service.
I have been absolutely delighted with my Paris End Bag. It is beautifully sculptural and elegant, a quiet statement piece. I love that it's discreet - no screaming brand logos here. You can feel the excellent craftsmanship from the leatherwork to the solid heft of the hardware. I'm thrilled to buy from an Australian business that produces such wonderful quality. Bravo Cecily Clune!
The daffodil clutch holds all my essentials perfectly - two pairs of glasses, a phone, and some makeup. The design is really creative and functional, and a small issue with my order was fixed quickly and generously.
My first bag from Cecily Clune and it did not disappoint. Love the leather, love the craftmanship, love everything about it. Friends mistake it for LV Epi bag and just told them it's way better than LV. will definitely start collecting her designs.
Love, love this bag. I'm impressed with the colour, I was a bit worried with this but it's beautiful and classy. Neutral but not boring.
this is my third Cecily Clune bags. Beautiful classic bag and the craftmanship is impressive. Very impressed as well with the service and fast delivery.
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.
Luxury, design, quality and practicality.
