If you're an L.A. local and an avid Who What Wear reader, you're probably familiar with our Street Style Cinema series at The Grove, where we're screening editor-favorite movies every Thursday in June. In addition to great films, food, and music, the weekly event is also an excellent source of sartorial inspiration, and naturally we've been taking note of all the guest looks we plan on re-creating ASAP. At the top of our shopping list? A Brahmin handbag that'll last us well into fall.

Not yet familiar with Brahmin? It's high time you got acquainted. It's been one of the best-kept secrets when it comes to handcrafted luxury handbags, and now the word is out… We saw so many lovely Brahmin bags on display at Street Style Cinema; there were bright summer-ready hues and citrus patterns as well as natural croc-embossed prints. Scroll to get a peek at Brahmin's newest offerings, as featured on some of L.A.'s most stylish girls.

The Trend: Going Hands-Free

Over the past few seasons, belt bags and crossbodies have been a standout trend, and for good reason. Hands-free styles are super chic, and they're obviously practical: a great option for those summer nights when you just need your wallet, keys, and cellphone. Scroll to shop the hassle-free styles we love.

The Trend: A Pop of Color

Summer is synonymous with bolder hues, and we're taking full advantage thanks to these bright prints and shades that just scream warm weather. Pair with a neutral outfit, or lean in with a bright ensemble. Bonus points for rocking a refreshing citrus print. (Not into brights? We've also picked out two of our go-to neutral bags.)

The Trend: Unexpected Shapes

We thought bucket bags were chic, but these asymmetrical silhouettes are next-level. Keep it simple with the everyday black circular option to let your outfit do the talking, or dive in headfirst with a bright bag that demands attention. FYI, we plan on purchasing both.
