THE SUMMER BAG EDIT

 Carrying Danse Lente during Australia Fashion Week

Carrying Danse Lente during Australia Fashion Week

It has been a while since I felt the need to switch my handbag according to seasons. Generally my favourite black, burgundy or monogram styles have seen me through the year just fine, but this summer is different. Not only has white become the instant update to every outfit, we are also seeing the return of tan in a clean modernist way, rather than spirited bohemia and the basket is making its way from beach to city streets.

My top 5 for the coming glorious summer months include; an update on the Simon Miller ‘Bonsai’ I have been carrying for over a year, the aptly named Cult Gaia bamboo ‘Ark’ clutch (aptly named as ‘cult’ as it is currently selling out on multiple sites) and Muun’s understated chic reinvention of the basket bag.
