Far from the straw that broke the camel’s back, this season, woven wicker wonders are upholding and strengthening our summer accessories game – one strand at a time.

L.K.Bennett leads the way at both ends of the spectrum, with its roomy Laurel bag and compact Lucille clutch inciting dreams of sipping sweet treats on the sand, even when the shore is nowhere to be seen.

Flirty fringing, braided handles and a perky pompom or two (we’d never say 'no' to pompoms), this dynamite double act is the two-step trick to sunny side-up dressing.

Clutch at straw(s) this season – straw bags, that is! Shop our favourite woven wonders here:
