It's wicker, man!
What's more, it's just £7 from Primarni (aka Primark!).
Who'd have though straw could be so sophisticated? But take a cool boxy design and elegant gold and leather trim (faux, of course) and you've got yourself a new-season bag that will add class to a multitude of looks from utility to safari to military. Right now, I teaming it with a vintage cape, but I'm picturing it with a wardrobe of khaki or stone once the weather warms up.
It was my friend Laura who first spotted 'the hamper' - and it lives up to its nickname, being roomy enough to carry a bottle of wine (yes, I tried!). But, just so that we're clear, on office days it's used for my personal effects and sarnies!
