Ok so maybe you’re still looking for a designer label but don’t want to completely blow your budget on a (let’s be honest) pretty seasonal staple. Palm leaf and wicker doesn’t exactly scream suitable for the upcoming autumnal and winter months. However, luckily for our Monde readers, we have found handbags in the quality and price bracket that gives you a bit more for a little less. These beach baskets are still stamped with the couture labels you know and love but are a whole lot friendlier to the numbers sitting in your bank account.

Needing durability in your next beach bag? Look no further than this beautiful basket from French fashion powerhouse, Jacquemus. With a body fabricated from 100% straw, this bag is reinforced with leather panelling to ensure your beach day essentials stay dry, (mostly) sand free and more importantly safely stowed away. Jacquemus has created quite the cult following during 2020. So what better way to begin your summer season this year than getting your hands on an accessory from one of the world’s hottest and most on trend designer brands.

Carry from either it’s rounded top handles or the detachable shoulder strap for ease of transportation and get ready to be beach bound!
