If you ask me what’s my new favorite bag of the moment, it the braided leather net bag I got from Zara. I can throw everything I need inside plus I don’t need to bother with odd pockets. Everything is where you need to be.
We have the French to thank when it comes to the net bag being fashionable. In the ’60s and ’70s, this grocery bag became the accessory to nail that chic and effortless look.
In recent years, I think it was bound that we would love the net bag because of how we’ve been into throwback accessories. The beads bag we had in our childhood and the wicker bags that we would associate with our grandmoms.
The wicker bag feels both old and new at the same time. Vetements paired it up with boots and a dress for their 2017 spring/summer look book. In 2015, Phoebe Philo introduced to the Céline woman, who is always on the go and free.
For those who can’t be bothered to put all their things in pouches have adapted the leather bucket-inside-a-net bag look. For a stylish choice, get the Staud Moreau bag.
Beach essential shopping spot Cabanna offers a few net bags as well—for your towel, sunscreen, tanning oil and other swimming needs.
There are many other iterations of the net bag and I feel there will be many more as the trend continues. All you have to do is cast your net wide to find the version that best suits your needs.
