Best basket bags for Spring / Summer 2018

Thursday, 9 August 2018
I’m so glad that for the 3rd year running, the basket bag trend is still going strong and will be here for spring / summer this year. Woven, straw, raffia, bamboo, wicker and all other beautiful natural fibre bags instantly make me thing of long lazy days at the beach when the sand is warm on your toes and the sea cool on your skin. Nowadays basket bags are so versatile that they can take you from a brunch in the city, to the office and on a summer holiday and the best part is they can generally fit in everything you need – a French baguette optional. Basket bags come in a range of styles from large totes to the cross-body strap style and embellished clutches as well as with a range of price tags.  If you can’t avoid a designer bag form one of the major fashion houses like Gucci, Balenciaga or Gaia than fear not because I have found more affordable highstreets options which are just as beautiful and will be the perfect spring / summer bag for you this year.
