String Bag is Back
Fashion is cyclical and, now, years later, the string bag returns to the list of the hottest trends of the season. This knitted bag has long been the basis of many modern bags, and these days it is again becoming a trendy accessory of everyday outlooks in a wide variety of styles. The string bag, also known as “net bag” or “avoska”, can create an interesting tandem with a raincoat or blazer, and even with the loose-fitting dresses. Designers and stylists offer to combine this accessory even with strict suits — that will certainly look somewhat provocative but if you do not mind some extra attention to your look — then it is definitely the right choice!
This summer, string bag variations were repeatedly presented at runway shows in the collections of Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and Maison Margiela. The trend was also picked up by mass market brands like Zara and Mango.
In addition to the relevance, lightness and variety of the string bags, it has a small disadvantage — it won’t keep any small objects inside. Though, as a trendy option, you may put any other bag inside of your string bag. This will give it a new sound and a new mood. It can be a matching bag or, conversely, a bag of a contrasting color, which will help coordinate the colors in the overall look and emphasize the stylistic line.
