Straw Bag

Trust a straw and rattan bag to capture the essence of summertime joy. Our black-and-white version, which folds out like a flower, scores high in the style stakes for being easy on the eyes and your arms. The structured rattan base makes for a sturdy foundation to hold your essentials while the straw skirting gives this bag some feminine flair.

Top Tip: Keep the easy breezy beach vibes going with a maxi dress or linen pants.

Oversized Tote

Generous when it comes to both room and style, our power tote in a rich caramel finish ticks all the right boxes for what a woman wants in her everyday bag. Plus, the tassel adds a fun and youthful touch. Giving you enough space to carry your essentials for a picnic or the office, it’s the transport tote you need to keep you looking chic on the outside even when it’s chaos on the inside (you know what we mean!).

Top Tip: Sling it over a floral maxi dress and you’ll nail that boho-chic vibe in no time.

Geometric Shapes

While timeless designs are here to stay, it’s never a bad idea to break away from the classics every once in a while. Breathe life into your usual summer threads by throwing a geometric-shaped bag to the mix. Our croc-stamped prune boxy round bag, crowned with metallic top handles is a bold design that will see you through every summer soirée in impeccable style.

Top Tip: Use it to add structure to languid silhouettes, such as a long midi dress.

Drawstring Bag

Drawstring bags have come a long way since the ‘80s nylon version. Today, not only are they a high-fashion must-have, but their versatility lets them play double duty at Friday dinner and again at Sunday brunch. Our frosty white sporty-meets-sassy number tackles two trends in one – it’s netted and comes in a bucket bag design. Use it on its own for a peek-a-boo effect or slip in the optional pouch to increase your storage space.

Top Tip: Let it stand out against bright tones or a fun colour block ensemble.

Crocodile Print Wristlet Bucket Bag

What is about a croc-effect finish that gives everything instant elevation? Just take our best-selling wristlet bucket bag for example. Earning a solid reputation for its classic cut and functional prowess, it now exudes a luxurious vibe thanks to its glossy olive embossed finish, no doubt making it Instagram bait. The best part about mock-croc is that you can play it up or down according to your style preference, and mood, making it a trans-seasonal piece and a wardrobe staple in our eyes.

Top Tip: Use it to spruce up a blazer and dress shorts co-ord, or a yellow sundress.
