Designed in Australia, Aphro & Co. handbags are totally unique pieces that any modern woman would love to have in her wardrobe. From everyday staples to eveningwear essentials, there’s something for every occasion from this talented Aussie designer.
We originally stumbled across this cute and quirky handbag company on Instagram when we saw the AUS State Clutch collection. A series of clutches dedicated to each state, using phrases commonly found on number plates, they were super unique and super fun. The New South Wales one, for example, boasts the slogan ‘First State’ and features a chic yellow beaded design against sparkly white sequins.
Although this collection is originally what drew us to Aphro & Co., we each fell in love with a different bag that we knew we had to make our own. Kristen’s eyes were drawn to the trend-led design of the Chunky Chain Bag in vibrant emerald, the perfect piece to elevate any outfit and add a pop of colour. The chunky gold chain makes it a great seasonal statement piece, while the longer, thinner chain is a little more timeless and allows you to pop it on over your shoulder and go hands-free on a night out. Both chains are removable, so you can customise it to suit your look, and its made from vegan croc leather with a matte finish.
Mel went for a more classic piece with the Gemma Snake Effect Clutch, featuring an agate stone clasp that really takes this bag to the next level. The structured shape of this bag ensures it’s a feature piece for any outfit, while the removable gold chain lets you use it as a clutch or wear it over your shoulder with ease.
If you’re after a bag to complete your party outfit this festive season or a thoughtful gift for a sartorial friend, you can check out Aprho & Co.’s collection here.
