New Season Spring Summer Collection

BANNED APPAREL SS17 COLLECTION

There are only 12 days to go until the official start of Spring, a great time of year full of promise and wonder. We cannot wait for the longer, warmer days when we can finally ditch the winter layers and spend more time having fun outdoors with friends and family. We are also excited to see so many pieces from our new season Spring Summer collection already available though our retailers worldwide.

This season we have lightened and brightened our collection with beautiful, vibrant colours, floral embellishments sweet prints and adorable accessories. Pastels are prominent and our fabrics are lighter as we move away from the darker, more sombre hues of winter.

In the early 1950s, the casual handbag emerged, as women demanded purses that were both fashionable and capable of holding all their cosmetics and accessories. Large shoulder shopping totes made from straw seemed to capture the spirit of spring and summer and holidays on the beach.

Soon, affordable and sprightly little baskets of woven rushes were all the rage, like those made by the likes of Los Doradas. These often resembled small handheld picnic baskets with ribbons and decorative elements on top, like plastic or fabric fruits or flowers. This down-market trend, started by Dorset Rex of New York, never appeared on the pages of Vogue, but were well-loved by the “dance hall crowd.” Such bright, colourful straw bags remained popular well into the ’60s, when whimsy became the new black.

Straw handbags made of plaited raffia, rattan, rushes, willow, cane, and dried grasses were soon replaced in the mid-1950s by sophisticated straw handbags.
