A classic basket is, without question, the most iconic summer bag of all. Evocative of Jane Birkin and Brigitte Bardot, it gives everything its paired with a timeless touch and, quite honestly, we couldn’t imagine the sunny months without one. Which is why creating our own with Rae Feather (the experts in woven bags) has been a long-term dream realised. Featuring the brand’s signature personalisation, our exclusive tote is roomy enough for everyday essentials and has a canvas inner pouch to hold valuables. The leather detailing, which comes in black and tan, renders it luxe enough to wear beyond the beach. From work to weekend, here are just a few ways to style it.
Lazy days on the beach call for a roomy basket big enough for a book, towel, sun cream and swimsuit. Play up the high-summer feel by introducing further crafty textures, such as raffia, crochet and beadwork.
Transform your basket into a practical city tote by teaming it with refined wardrobe classics. Create cohesion and pick up the black strap detailing with a coordinating logo cap.
For city-break sightseeing or weekend picnics with friends, channel market-day chic and style your basket with a midi dress and flats. Take it up a notch by adding a chunky chain and luxe sunglasses.
Switch up your weekend uniform and reach for summery black separates worn in a head-to-toe look. Use your basket to lift the monochrome colour palette, while maintaining the perfectly minimal aesthetic.
