Cult Gaia, Angelou bag - Teal, Rs. 23629

Look around and you will easily spot a basket bag or two. Over the last year, they have gone through multiple updates in terms of shapes, colours, and textures. It’s almost been like a fashion overdose of raffia. If like me, you have managed to survive the basket bag bug or even if you haven’t, I have an equal parts playful and chic solution for you.

From grocery shopping to work, from being beach-friendly to street-style friendly, crochet bags are an offbeat yet sophisticated companion. Like, the Insta-worthy Cult Gaia’s Angelou bag is a perfect day to night partner and lotus clutch by & Other Stories is your date for the Sunday brunch. Interestingly Cult Gaia has actually been thriving on their cult-like following with their semi-circular cane bags. But we guess monogamy is outdated now.

With a medley of silhouettes and colours available, crochet bags have managed to surpass the cliché of being grandma’s favourite but, just like basket bags, they still come with a casual, beachy vibe like Carrie Forbes green crocheted cord bag. And if you get attracted to the eccentric vibe of crochet, then there are Dolce & Gabbana My Heart bags for you. You can easily mix and match them with patchwork print dresses or pair them up with the classic white shirt and blue jeans combination.
