Bags of style for mum
Wondering what to buy your mother for Mother's Day? Maybe perfume, flowers, chocolate, or jewellery have crossed your mind. Or how about a handbag, a style accessory which will revitalise her wardrobe and bring her bang up to date for spring?
Gionni has a great selection of stylish and elegant bags to ensure you spoil that important woman in your life on March 26. Whatever her style or taste there is something that will appeal.
Or if you want to pamper yourself for having survived the lean mean month of January or for keeping your New Year resolutions then a new handbag may be the perfect gift to yourself. It will allow you to retire your trusty and functional black winter bag and upgrade to a brighter, better model.
At Gionni, the look for spring/summer 2017 is all about fun. Stand-out colours and designer prints are a constant theme throughout the collection, a complete departure from drab winter colours.
Animal prints are on trend this spring and they can be seen throughout the range. These are like neutrals - they are made up of brown, beige, and black, after all. This makes them very versatile and cost effective because your bag will match almost every outfit you have.
Bright colours add excitement to your wardrobe. You can use a vibrant bag to add pzazz to an otherwise neutral outfit, a style risk that will always pay off.
Buying a new bag does not have to break the bank. Gionni prides itself its range of catwalk bags at high street prices and has a bag for every woman at a range of price points.
• The Gionni range is available from Kilkenny Stores, Debenhams, and leading local retailers.
