Beyond the Picnic Blanket

 The word basket used to connote images of picnics under shady trees or vessels to pick fruits and veggies from at farmstands.  But all of a sudden it’s modern and chic to carry a basket as a bag.  They come in all shapes and sizes, half moon to hobo, structured or not, this is without question the IT bag of the summer.  Here are some of your best bets this season.

For a quick fix, try Figue, 55 Main St, East Hampton.  And remember, if you order from Net-a-Porter by 10am, they will deliver same day to the Hamptons.

PS You might just raid your mom’s closet too, as these are a huge throw back to Jane Birkin’s basket bag in the 70s.  If you hold onto something long enough, it always comes back around, right?
