We love when the summer months roll through and we've completely swapped out our Spring layers with the light cottons and natural fabrics. And so this is the summer of raffia - whether Prada, Anya Hindmarch, Saint Laurent, Valentino... the list goes on!

While a bit of a gamble in cities where rain features heavily in the summer months (hello London!) raffia shoes such as these Gabriela Hearst lace-ups are the perfect lightweight accessories one needs to keep cool while pounding the pavement. We love their touch of suede to make a new brogue for the heat!

Prada's successfully translated their sharp shapes and saffiano leather into new ways of carrying the emblematic Prada triangle logo! Cue this tote bag with a soft, deconstructed design that is the ideal shopper whether at the food market or a laptop carrier.

Tod's is more known for their gomino loafers and driving shoes, so we were happy to see these raffia sandals with chunky rubber sole - a great combination of waterproof functionality with summer ease.
