The basket bag is starting to have a moment. Alexa Chung was recently spotted out and about rocking a Chanel basket bag, the ultimate it girl it just may be time to sit up and take notice of this emerging trend. I remember my grandmother had a bag just like this, and I also remember how silly my sister and I thought it was, we use to look at it and giggle. We could’t imagine that anyone would actually use it as a handbag. Well fast forward a couple decades and suddenly this bag doesn’t seem quite so silly any more. No, it has not caught on as well as say the quilted cross body bag but I think we will be seeing more of this smart stylish accessory. Would you do the basket bag? Do you own one? If not would you consider purchasing a basket bag, or this a little too trendy for you?
