14 basket bags to hang off your arm this season

As far as I'm concerned, baskets are the original Birkin bag. And unlike the cult handbag, the raffia kind are affordable and ubiquitous. More to the point, no wardrobe is really complete without one.

Think about it. We all have an everyday leather bag, a carry-all tote, and an evening purse that packs a bunch. But when it comes to beach trips or breakfast escapades, we're stepping into basket bag territory.

Some prefer their baskets primed for the market, with a gaping mouth ready to be stuffed with flowers, leafy vegetables and herbs. While for others, it's the bucket shape that gets your engine going. Others again, wear the bucket label lightly, opting for net totes and woven shoulder bags that hint subtly at Jane Birkin's signature accessory.

Whatever your preference, below we're bringing you a curated selection of the best baskets money can buy this season. With classic shapes from Patou and Jacquemus, and the generous styles from Loewe and Bottega Veneta on offer, there's something for everyone.
