You may not remember, but back in the days wicker was a strong fiber used for woven products such as chairs, small tables and baskets.
That was the B.JB. era.
Before Jane Birkin.
In 1969, the movie La Piscine (The Swimming Pool) hits the theaters and a style icon is born: Jane Birkin. The image of Pénélope, the heroine portrayed by Jane, who casually sports her wicker bag around the French Riviera, will be remembered for a very long time from all fashion lovers around world.
Now, a couple of decades later, wicker, rattan, straw and raffia and stronger, bolder and more ubiquitous than ever (at least when it comes to stylish choices). Here are a few proposals for your wardrobe and your home interior:
Wicker bag – for the seaside, the countryside and the city-side of your life
Wicker shoes – for breezy steps during that summer vacation that you’ve planned since last September
Wicker hat – because, you know: it’s summer after all
Wicker basket – for picnics on a meadow, but also for collecting books, magazines or even your toddler’s toys
Wicker chair – for that villa on the French Riviera that you’ve always dreamt about… or least for its projection in your head
Wicker placemats – because meals can be pretty hot… even on the terrace of your French villa 🙂
It’s wicker season!
