For insta-cool-girls, summer has already begun and the one accessory they're all carrying? The bamboo bag. This is not just a regular handbag, this is a bag that's got a clear architectural sense to it. It's well structured with intricate detailing that juxtaposes the easy-breeziness summer atmosphere. 

The structural style of the bag means it will instantly add a sense of polish to just about any outfit. It turns a boring bikini and sandals into pool-side chic, it takes jeans and a linen shirt from meh to meh-smerising and it just about glams up every and any of your floral summer dresses. The natural texture and neutral colour brings a unique appeal that ultimately makes your outfit stand out - for all the right reasons.
