Once mutually exclusive to summer escapades on the shores of the Côte d'Azur, bohemian-tinged bags (think woven-raffia, straw, bamboo and multi-coloured textiles) have come full circle to embody a very modern attitude to dressing.

Segue around restrictive ‘beach bag’ monikers and enter the territory of multi-hyphenate summer styleone bag that does it all, looking equally at home against the cityscape of our Capital as it does on #nofilterneeded white sandy shores.

It doesn’t even matter if there are zero holidays on your horizon!  This season’s key artisanal styles, incoming from the likes of Cult Gaia, Sensi Studio, Sophie Anderson and Muzungu Sisters, deliver a whack of sunshine and a boho rhapsody to the beat of big city life.

We’re in a summer state of mind! Shop our edit of beach-but-not-beach bags here:
