From Catwalk, to Celeb, to High Street: Wicker basket bags

April 7, 2010

Make like Chanel- via Alexa- and sport a bag made of natural raw materials, those materials namely being wicker -that usually of summer holiday chair which gives appearance of cellulite inprint on legs- raffia -usually found on 3 euro beach mats in Benidorm- and a natural tone of tweed -a new twist on the classic Chanel 2.55.

Seen on the catwalk at Chanel RTW for this spring, Alexa carried her lunchbox-style wicker basket to the Chanel autumn show – a season ahead- and on-trend and faultless as usual.

Dip your toe in the trend…

There are some amazing high street copies around at the moment- and with the real deal costing well into quadruple figures,  i’d say this is a trend which will come and go- so best not to invest. Although i’m never the one to say that Chanel isn’t an investment!
