WICKER & FRUIT - A VIDEO

FRANCES VALENTINE - HONEYPOT BASKET


Sometimes the simplest things are the most pleasurable. Come summer (fashion wise), that means light dresses, sandals that slip on and off easily and bags that can transport purchases from the farmer’s market as effortlessly as your daily necessities. The best bags for the task are being made from wicker, raffia, or straw. This basket bag has long been a favorite of chic girls worldwide (Jane Birkin’s picnic basket remains a ubiquitous icon of style), and this season their popularity shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, more designers than ever before have appropriated the summertime staple, adding pom poms and monograms, gold chain handles and leather closures. To celebrate five of our favorite styles we put together 5 little videos. Instead of a classic photoshoot. We thought, what if our photoshoot could move. Here are the first results of those thoughts. We hope you enjoy them.
