Summer is here and I am certain that most of you are ready to head for your break from work and university. And if you are like me, you would firstly want to be by the beach. A lot of us have noticed how there is a new bag trend every summer, from the Cult Gaia bamboo bags to the Shrimps beaded bags. It’s time we get in on this trend. Take your pick from all the upcoming bag brands, ready to be carried from the city to the beach. So be dressed your best and have the most sought after accessory for the season on your arms.


The Brazilian brand has premium straw bags in multiple styles. With wanting to promote Peruvian artists, Nannacay took off for the exclusive nature of each hand-made bag. The Joanna tote and Roge pom-pom bags are definitely most popular but I am currently crushing on the very minimal Malie bag.


Absolutely fitting for the city and beach vacay, the spring/summer pastel coloured Mini Delila bags are the trendiest crossbody for the season. Made in Spain, the latest Yuzefi pre-fall bags are so trendy due to the shape. Currently eyeing the Dip bag in Cappuccino/Auburn. Excuse me, got to go find my credit card NOW!


Staud has a new trending bag every summer. The brand won over all the IG influencers around the world with the Bissett bag, a bucket bag with a top handle. This summer, the more affordable Shirley bag is making a wave. The PVC allows you to show off all your cute belongings. The most wonderful part about this bag, you can replace the Staud pouch with your own to make the bag more fun or luxe like I did. Stay tuned for more pictures!


I thoroughly enjoy how the brand shares the personal story of each bag in its collection. From where it was weaved, to the materials used and the inspiration behind the style. Kayu has such a wide collection of cute bags that it has established itself as everyone’s all time favourite beach bag.


Wandler, while being present in the international market since over a few years, has made a big splash into the Indian market recently. With Le Mill selling the bags in Mumbai and Indian influencers wearing it already, we see how this brand is much loved by all the brown girls. The interesting shape, wide range of colours and textures in leather, this bag is a hit!


While Kaanas’ summer sandals have been popular, have you paid attention to their bags? These handcrafted bags are so special as they are made from natural palm-like fibre and also naturally dyed. I adore how the irregularities in the bags due to the craftsmanship makes each bag so unique and exclusive. Kaanas bags are definitely on my summer list!
