Jacquemus is known for its playful designs and unique charm, which are all present in Le Petite Baci Bag. The hand-woven raffia tote screams beaches and sunny French countrysides, while the long tassels hanging beneath add to Jacquemus’ signature flair and drama.

Because the bag is hand-crafted with all-natural materials, each has its unique irregularities and colour variations. In addition to the natural color of raffia, Le Petite Baci Bag also comes in fuchsia – a vibrant purplish-red that brings even more personality.

Cult Gaia mini fan ark 

Cult Gaia’s mini fan ark is not only a wardrobe necessity; it is a work of art. The iconic piece has finally gained its well-deserved popularity this summer, becoming the “it” bag for many A-listers and prevailing as a seasonal staple.

This half-circle architecturally structured with bamboo was the first-ever product designed by Cult Gaia founder, Jasmin Larian. Now, the mini fan ark bag is also available in tortoise acrylic, which transitions perfectly into fall.
