Raffia tote bags have been a hallmark of the quintessential summer wardrobe for decades. From Brigitte Bardot to Kate Moss and Alexa Chung, over the years, many stylish women have chosen the item for beach days, park picnics and beyond.
However, while the carryall has typically held an under-the-radar, effortless kind of appeal, recently raffia tote bags have become quite the It item thanks to Spanish luxury brand, Loewe. Featuring an adjustable leather handle and the brand's instantly recognizable insignia, Loewe's raffia totes bags have become somewhat ubiquitous amongst the fashion set. From Camille Charriere to Pernille Teisbeak, the item (which is available in various colours and sizes) has graced my Instagram feed more times than I can count in recent weeks, undeniably solidifying itself as one of the most popular staples of the season.
Of course, while the bag might be seen as trending right now, the beauty of the Loewe tote is that it is a timeless investment, that will see you through summers to come.
