The ‘IT’ bag of 2017 has to go to the Cult Gaia bamboo ark bag – and although I’m late to the party I finally got mine in time for our Mexican vacation.
Not for lack of trying mind you, this bag has been really hard to get this summer in the U.K. Available only via cult gaia, net-a-porter and moda operandi (as far as I could find). The latter two had been sold out for MONTHS, with Cult Gaia’s own stock coming and going but with a very hefty shipping fee. I’d started to lose all hope until that net-a-porter back in stock email hit my inbox. With just one week before our Mexican break, it had to be fate. You can get yours here.
And I couldn’t imagine a more perfect setting for this little bamboo beauty.
I’m yet to find an outfit this doesn’t look great with, the bamboo suits both silver and gold accessories too. I’m wearing it below with Topshop Sandals (similar here), Asos Dress and Coach bracelets (similar here).
I went for the ‘small’ size and can comfortably fit my phone, a book and a slim wallet purse, all the essentials for a warm summers day. The bag transitions from day to night effortlessly.
