Customary to the seaside, the basket is also a regular in collections from the great fashion houses. Celine, Balenciaga, and Saint Laurent wisely punctuate it with leather inserts, Jacquemus covers it with fringes, and Loewe opts for colourful and sparkling raffia with Spanish influences. At Prada, it takes the form of a bucket, and at Cult Gaia, its geometric structure is a signature. It can be adopted both in a maxi size for storing the computer or a beach towel or in a smaller size to accompany us on summer evenings. Choose one in bold to catch attention in a blink of an eye.

Play it like Birkin!

  • So Frenchy: Like Jane, we associate the basket with a casual outfit that always has its effect. In flared jeans, a white t-shirt, and flat sandals, we walk along the Seine before sneaking into Saint Germain. If the wind picks up, we throw a men’s jacket over our shoulders.
  • “Je t’aime… Moi non plus”: Romantic and bohemian, we put on Mademoiselle Birkin’s little crochet dress for a 70s comeback. At arm’s length, the basket brings a vintage touch and enhances the look paired with a pair of boots.
  • A seductive or nothing look: Inspired by Jane, we break the rules of elegance with over-the-knee boots, black leather shorts and a loose shirt. And a scarf tied to the basket’s handles adds the air of offbeat femineity for the final touch.

Forever Muse...
