50 Shades of Grey

Grey carries an air of mysteriousness - the distance between black and white.

It's not a colour that commands attention; simply one that acts as a middle ground. There is something about grey that exudes style & sophistication. 

Here are just a few things the colour grey represents:

Elegance
Dignity
Knowledge
Intellect
Authority

What a remarkable list!

Interestingly, if you take an intense colour and put it next to grey, the grey allows the eye to do the visual mixing and beautifully complements it.

So it comes as no surprise that grey sits perfectly within our collection.

You can wear pretty much any one of our Ivy clutches with the grey Dahlia.

 

Or why not add a touch of grey to your current bag, using our accessories like the Ivy mini bags, tassels, straps or fluffy pom-poms for a playful touch.

 

 

Our resident stylist, Alison, has pulled together 7 different looks using her grey Dahlia 2-in-1 as the starting point. Each outfit looks completely different; you'd never know it was the same bag! 

 

1. Bohemian Luxe
The fringe deco strip immediately gives this smart outfit a bohemian chic feel. Fringing really makes a statement, but in an understated way. This look combines 70's festival hippie with modern day office boss and we can't get enough! 

 

2. Orange is the new black
The colour that automatically lifts our mood and brings a smile to our face! There is something about it that is bold, adventurous and loud. Orange easily transcends into different seasons - simply changing this skirt to a white or pale shade would take this autumnal look into summer. 

 

3. Take a walk on the wild side
Everyone loves a bit of leopard print and it's one trend that you need never worry will go out of fashion. A classic wrap dress such as this one will keep the print feeling elegant, and adding simple leopard accessories to your grey bag nicely pulls the outfit together. 

 

4. Lady in Red
Turn up the drama and style of your look for an impressive ensemble with a touch of red. It beautifully compliments the grey and simple pieces styled together like this make a real statement. Let your handbag do the talking...

 

5. Effortless day to night elegance AKA the Dahlia 2-in-1 
Let's set the scene: It's payday Friday and cocktail o'clock is fast approaching at 5pm on the dot. Don't have time to change handbags? There's no need; simply detach this super cute black & white Ivy clutch from your Dahlia and head straight to the bar... 


 

6. That's a wrap
There's a reason that the classic wrap dress is a modern fashion favourite and is a wardrobe staple for women everywhere. It's incredibly flattering and it can be worn for just about any occasion. The grey Dahlia with the infinity tassel adds a touch of je ne sais quoi and is the ideal Saturday night dinner look. 


 

7. And relax!
Sunday means minimal effort with maximum impact, and this outfit speaks volumes. Trainers teamed with a jersey maxi are super casual; add a couple of accessories and your outfit is transformed into something effortlessly cool.
