Buying less but better with intention
The Alice is for those who consciously choose to have the right things in their lives. It is a bag that embodies a connection with ancient skills and family run artisanry - made to endure for years, not seasons.
It's about curation and intention, buying luxury for the beauty and longevity and buying less but better.

The Alice is an artisanal bag made with exceptional skill
One of a kind
The shape of both Alice and Forever Alice has been crafted 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
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 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.

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.
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 .

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.
