It’s hard to ignore the comeback of crochet, and why would you want to?
From bucket hats to beach-ready dresses, the technique previously popular in the ’70s seems to be taking over every inch of our wardrobes again half a century later.
But if you’re not ready (and/or willing) you wear the trend from head-to-toe, perhaps an easy way to dip your toe into it is with accessories.
Bottega Veneta has put its own stamp on the crochet bag, updating the trend with a colour block shoulder bag complete with a chunky silver chain. Then there’s Prada’s neutral basket bag with clean tan straps and its classic logo plate.
When you think of crochet though, perhaps the first thing you think of is the granny square. Italian bag brand la milanesa isn’t afraid to make an impact with its designs; its collection of colourful crocheted bags are some of my personal favourites.
Something tells me we’re about to see a whole lot more of these woven bags.
Have I convinced you yet? I’ve found 17 crochet bags that definitely will.
