From Maje to Bottega Veneta, here are the most stylish crocheted bags to debut on the beach.
Despite crochet’s humble origins, the needlework technique has taken the fashion industry by storm. The 1960s saw a huge resurgence in the desire to crochet, and judging by its proliferation throughout this season’s collections, from Acne Studios to Anna Sui, the trend is here to stay.
Once seemingly ingrained in the Coachella dress code, crochet has taken a turn after being adopted by lovers of Y2K. It has been translated into a variety of stylish forms including slip dresses and bucket hats and we are happy to report that crochet bags are officially not a step too far but an essential part of your wardrobe Summer accessories collection.
