Sorry, French Girls Just Aren't Into This
It's not just you: Baskets really are everywhere right now. The relaxed summer style has long been a favorite of French women, but it's catching on globally too. According to data collected by Paris-based Vestiaire Collective, Parisian trends are taking over just about everywhere. And one tidbit we couldn't help but latch onto is the idea that French women prefer simple sleek bags to overly flashy designer styles.
"The basket, like the idea behind the Balenciaga Bazaar, is the ultimate anti bag," says Marie Blanchet, Vestiaire's head of vintage. "French girls don't obsess over It bags too much." According to Vestiaire's data, searches for basket bags are up over 350% since last year, an impressive jump for so short a time. So if French-girl style is currently on your radar, you may want to consider swapping a trendy bag for a simple basket instead.
