Racing Season Ready! Why You Need To Hire A Designer Bag For Melbourne Cup

Racing season is upon us, and it’s time for the bold coloured dresses and statement headpieces to make their debut! Now girls, we know what you must all be thinking; what about the handbag? Well, we’ve got you sorted! Hiring a designer handbag or clutch is the easiest solution, as it can suit any budget, and gives you the ability to try all sorts of different looks.

Our favourite luxury bag hire is Aphase, as it hires out exclusive pieces that can complement many different tastes. Owner of Aphase, Jovana Vukelic, has given us pointers on choosing the perfect event bag!


It is important to remember that the clutch or handbag you choose to hire, can fit all of your personal essentials. “Keep in mind that your favourite lipstick, ID/cards, mirror, roll-on perfume fit in the bag,” Jovana says. “Let’s face it we never take our phones out of our hands!”


When hiring designer bags, racegoers should keep in mind that depending on their outfit, the sky is the limit! Jovana points out that if you are wearing solid colours like nude, pink, black, white or grey, you’re better off choosing a nice statement bag that will compliment and make your outfit pop! Aphase’s YSL and Valentino collection can help you achieve this look.


If you’re one to keep up with all things trendy, pay attention! Jovana has given us the inside scoop on what’s trending in designer handbags and clutches for the upcoming spring carnival. “A lot of statement pieces and bright colours are trending, bags that are unique in shape and size.” This includes Aphase‘s ‘Forever’ clutch which is an absolute show stopper.

Minimalist or Extravagant?

While trends can be fun to follow, it is also important that you embrace your own personal style in your fashion choices. If you’re after a more minimalist look, Jovana has noticed that small bags are also making a comeback. Examples by Aphase include the classic YSL Kate Clutch and Gucci Marmont collection.

So, Fairies, how’s that for handbag inspiration? Will you be hiring one of these gorgeous pieces for race season?
