Whether it’s lunch in the city, Aperol o’clock on an Italian beach or cocktail hour in the evening, my raffia bag goes everywhere with me in summer.
My Miu Miu basket purse is one of my oldest fashion investments I own: Almost a decade ago, I ordered this gem on American ebay. Clearly not having thought it through properly before feverishly clicking the “buy it now” button, I did pay heavy import tax on the bag for delivery to Germany. Fast forward ten years and I could not be happier with the expenditure. Long before French style icon Ines de la Fressange declared the little straw bag a summer staple, this little bag has been brightening up many of my outfits. Me and my straw bag are inseperable, like Jane Birkin and her little wicker basket!
In the pics I am keeping it girly & nautical with a navy broderie anglaise skirt and Breton shirt.
