Who knew carrying a fishing basket could be so chic? The answer is Jane Birkin, the British actress and singer. You know the mademoiselle of the ’70s with that certain je nais sais quoi. Her last name inspired the eponymous Hermès Birken.
I get it, Jane. It makes sense to tote a functional bag to carry all our many necessities. Not a plastic bag, not a stenciled tote, no high-end investment needed, just a handmade, practical Portuguese basket. This basket is too chic for transporting Toto and not your average picnic basket.
