Ever since Jane Birkin first walked the streets swinging a basket from her arm, the nonchalant look has become a summertime go-to. This season, the ubiquitous basket bag has reached its peak. There’s Cult Gaia’s ark bag, which is modeled after a Japanese picnic basket, the St Barth's-inspired plain market bag, small bags, wicker baskets, and then there’s Kayu. Undoubtedly a favorite amongst the style set, they’re bags with flair. Handles are covered in stripes, bags are monogrammed and affixed with pompoms, and in some cases, stripes of shaggy raffia cover the front and back. While the label also stocks clutches and totes. The basket bag is undoubtedly its best seller. And for good reason—this is the bag you want as your beach companion.
