Trend: The New Birkin Bag
THE WEEK THE WORLD WENT WILD FOR…
She’s Alexa Chung’s style icon and has one of the most famous bags of all time named after her, so you could say Jane Birkin knows a thing or two when it comes to style. A quick Google will undoubtedly result in an epic deep dive, so alluring are the effortlessly cool photographs of her in the 70s. And you might notice that in almost every picture, Jane’s carrying a straw basket as her handbag. Straw bags have been big news this summer (what Brexit?) but recently we’ve spied a whole army of babes rocking a rounded style with a top handle and handy lid, teamed with everything from holiday frocks to jeans and tees. Fash insiders are buying theirs from Blooming Dreamer and Insta’s @Janebirkinbasket, but we’ve also seen some great options on Etsy. Trust us: you’ll feel chic in a pop-up picnic pin-up sorta way. You know, like Jane Birkin. Sold.
