Over the last few years, basket bags have made the leap from holiday essential to seasonal everyday must-have, with brands including Loewe and Chloé crafting their own cult versions of the style. But the raffia tote has long been a timeless choice of spring-summer holdall, with the natural material perfectly complementing the lighter fabrics and softer colours we wear in the warmer, sunnier seasons. The key to finding the ideal city version is to opt for one roomy enough to hold your day-to-day essentials, but not so large that it’s difficult to carry. The strap needs thought, too; opt for a sturdy handle that’s long enough to carry on your shoulder for comfort and security. We’ve found 10 that tick all the style and practicality boxes.
