The straw bag carries with it an important story. The one that made it famous and that makes it one of our favorite bags every summer. In all shapes, sizes and colors.
Yes, because if the most popular until a few seasons ago was only the one in the maxi format, today the straw bag is also chosen in smaller shapes or in different models. Half moons, shoulder bags, buckets… the natural weaves conquer a very special place in our wardrobe.
A must for beach holidays, perfect for the city, the straw bag conquers even the most urban looks by playing with fashion and contrasts. If we think about it, its story begins just like this: from its practical origin as a basket, a shopping container, to a great cult launched by the great style icon Jane Birkin. It was she who gave the name to one of the most famous it bags in the world (the Hermes Birkin) and it was she who launched the trend of wearing the straw bag not only on the beach but also in the city. Unforgettable in the streets of Paris, with the straw basket on her arm.
The avant-garde, the talent to anticipate fashion when it has yet to become a trend. Jane Birkin has made the straw bag a cult object that goes beyond her function. It's glamor, it's exclusivity, it's beauty...
With the right mix of boho-chic style and metropolitan taste, straw bags today range from the most elegant and minimal models to those richer in details such as trimmings, pom poms, embroidery, stones. And if they are handcrafted, intertwined with care and art by hand, like those of the new and independent made in Italy brands, they are a truly inevitable accessory in your wardrobe.
