Weave It, Work It: The Wicker Trend

While some trends come and go, certain ones never go out of style - and this season sees wicker at the forefront of fashion once again.

Ever since Jane Birkin made headlines with her beautiful woven basket in the 1970s, wicker has remained a global signature style.

Accompanying her to both black tie dinners and afternoons on the beach, Birkin’s tote was chic and versatile, and transformed her into the ultimate style icon.


Naturally fashionable Kate Bosworth embraces the woven trend with her luxurious Rosalia Mini.

Emphasising the effortlessly cool nature of the basket, Kate compliments this summer’s must-have piece with modern tailoring and flowing hair.


Also tapping into the timeless texture is Stella McCartney with her statement Canyon Wicker Elyse Shoes.

The contemporary wedges exude the elegance of the trend by comprising subtle weaving and wooden platforms.

Brigitte Bardot, the height of fashion in the 1960s, was often photographed carrying her wicker basket through the streets of Paris.

Even though Bardot initiated numerous styles throughout her career, her woven handbag was one of the most inspirational.


A favourite of fashion muse Olivia Palermo, our Rosalia tote channels the wicker trend through its embossed woven texture and simple silhouette.

Crafted from Italian leather and featuring an optional long strap, the luxury accessory is the perfect transitional bag. 

 Once just a furniture staple, wicker is now an adaptable fashion essential that works just as well in the city as it does on the beach.
