2020's Summer It Bag is Back and Looking Better Than Ever

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, last year raffia tote bags became quite the It item thanks to Spanish luxury brand, Loewe. Featuring an adjustable leather handle and the brand's instantly recognisable insignia, Loewe's raffia totes bags became somewhat ubiquitous amongst the fashion set. From Camille Charriere to Pernille Teisbeak, the item (which is available in various colours and sizes) graced my Instagram feed more times than I could count over the course of last summer and, in turn, it solidified itself as one of the most popular staples of the season.

Of course, while the bag might have had a moment in the spotlight in 2020, the beauty of the Loewe tote is that it is a timeless investment, that will see you through summers to come. Just ask a 1960s era-Bridgitte Bardot. Well, the bag is well and truly back for 2021 and looking better than ever, and something tells us it will continue to look chic year after year. Keep scrolling to see how the fashion set is styling the luxury item and shop Loewe raffia bags below.
