PHOTO COURTESY OF POLÈNE PARIS
Wicker bags have always been evocative of summer. If you’re on the hunt for a creation that channels some major vacay vibes, here’s one to consider. Meet Yké, a basket bag from Polène Paris.
A new take on a tropical essential, it features two completely different materials that form its round bucket silhouette. Wicker bags that are typically made by hand and the same goes for this creation. But after the bucket’s wicker scaffolding is handwoven in Tunisia, it is wrapped in a full-grained textured calf leather petal. This extends to its sculptural handle for a contemporary touch.
As far as the bag’s dimensions go, it has a diameter of 14.5cm and a total height of 20.5 cm. Just the right size to hold your daily essentials, it comes complete with a leather top flap to keep contents secure.
Set to be a favourite companion for your next summer vacay, the Yké bag comes in three leather colour choices. Choose from classic Black, elegant Cognac, and neutral Tan. Priced at USD260, the design is now available for pre-order online via Polène Paris. Shipping starts from 22 July.
