The leading trend of last summer was undoubtedly basket bags, as straw, woven and raffia handbags were no longer just reserved for the beach but made their way into our city wardrobes too. This trend has now extended to footwear, as this summer, sandals, mules and mid-heels are all coming in this handcrafted texture. Designers including Neous, Carrie Forbes and Brother Vellies are driving this trend, and the high street has well and truly run with it. Topshop and Mango haven't even dropped their high-summer collections yet, and already there are countless numbers of braided and woven shoes for under £50. Natural fabrics are key for this summer, such as easy linens and crochets in earthy tones, and so these raffia shoes slot perfectly into this summer's laid-back aesthetic.
