Last summer was all about relaxed raffia bags with a boho feel featuring tassels and pom pom trims. I’m sure we’ll still see plenty of this style in the summer to come however this season the fashionistas will all be sporting the new ‘Basket Bag’. This trend leans towards more structured bags with a retro feel.
According to my Instagram feed, the absolute ‘IT’ basket bag of the season is the Cult Gaia Ark Bag. Made from bamboo with an architectural silhouette, it’s easy to understand why everyone if falling head over heels for this stylish bag. I’m not sure how practical the bag is but it sure makes for Instagram-worthy photos!
Other popular looks are the round handwoven style and the more boxy sling bag. These bags are all hitting the beach and the streets in a big way… will you be getting your hands on one?
