With summer rolling around and social calendars getting busier by the day, outfit planning will undoubtedly be added to the to do list soon enough. We all know that every outfit needs the finishing touch in the perfect occasion bag and we’re here to help you find one that you won’t want to be without this Summer.
Our collection of Fiorelli handbags are designed with fashion and function in mind to ensure you can take them to any occasion and make sure your essentials are stored safely and stylishly. Whether you like a crossbody for ease or a clutch for elegance, we’ve got a range of styles we think you’re going to love as much as we do.
Perfect for warmer weather is our Nordic Floral print which has a beautiful nude base colour and is adorned with icy washes of watercolour in the form of delicate flowers. Available in our classic Bethnal crossbody or slimline Rami crossbody, adding a bit of print to an otherwise plain outfit is a great way to add the finishing touch,
Alongside our occasion bags we also have our best-selling Finley purses which come with a handy wristlet so you can really strip things back and just take the bare essentials. Available in classic black or grey or tan, it'll easily transition from your everyday handbag to an evening occasion.
To give you a helping hand we’ve asked some of Fiorelli HQ to let you in on what handbag they’ve picked for their social calendars this season. Whether you’re booked up with weddings, summer parties or a day at the races, there’s a handbag ready and waiting to be added to your basket for the occasion.
Occasion Bag: Summer Party
National Account Manager Rachelle has a lot of summer birthdays coming up and has found the perfect bag for each of those occasions in the Edith clutch.
Rachelle said: “I can fit everything in without struggling to close it up which is sometimes a real pain point with clutch bags. I’ve had lots of compliments on how soft and luxe it looks and feels."
“On the quiet I love how practical it is – walked in with it as a clutch and later got out the chain shoulder strap (that’s just tucked inside) when I needed to hold my glass! Having an evening bag that looks great but is also practical is a big thing for me so I think it’ll be my favourite party bag for quite a while.”
Occasion Bag: Summer Adventures
Our Customer Service Advisor Marthe doesn’t have one big event in her calendar this Summer, but does have lots of days out, picnics and adventures planned with friends so it’s important that she has a versatile handbag she can use every time.
Marthe said: “The Sigrit tote in black is definitely my all-in-one bag because it’s such a classic and timeless piece. It goes with literally anything and is the perfect size to fit all the essentials. It’s ideal for girly shopping trips and lazy lunches as I can just pop it comfortably on my shoulder and stroll around – I love the casual shape and how luxurious it feels despite it being super lightweight."
"I prefer to have one bag I know I can rely on wherever I’m going and I love it that it can be worn casually or used to make a statement on occasions. Even though the weather is getting warmer and it's black, I'll pair it with light linens and neutral tones to keep it looking chic.”
DTC trading manager Holly's must -have bag for Summer wedding season is the Bethnal crossbody in ice pink as it's the perfect size occasion bag to include everything she needs and is super practical with its main zip compartment and added front and back slip pockets on the outside.
"The Bethnal crossbody bag also comes in black, but I have planned to wear the ice pink colourway to a wedding this summer to match perfectly with my pastel print dress. The Bethnal’s long crossbody strap is great for a wedding, I will wear either across my body or on my shoulder so I can remain ‘hands free’ to capture all those special moments on camera, while the other hand is eating delicious cake or sipping a glass of bubbles. The Bethnal is a fabulous little summer occasion bag, brilliantly practical and super stylish!"
Day at the races
Senior Graphic Designer Ilaria firmly believes that a classy racing event requires the perfect outfit, the best shoes and not forgetting the perfect arm candy bag to finish the look.
"I have seen so many outfits ruined by an old handbag, that's why it's so key to choose the right style. Planning the perfect combo: a Liberty print floral dress in red with a lovely ruffled collar and puffed sleeves, paired with the Alda mini in ice pink which is the best silhouette and colour for a feminine and stylish finish."
"It's also perfect to fit all my essentials and is easy to carry as it comes with a long strap in case I need my hands-free whilst I toast my win with a glass of champagne!"
