When designers presented their spring 2020 collections last fall, we saw a surge of woven and knotted bags walk down the runways. It's not all that surprising as pool and beach-ready novelty bags have been a go-to inclusion for designers' collections the last few years. However, this season brands have taken it one step further and moved beyond the wicker basket bags and hard-sided bags that have been trending the last couple of summers. This year, we're seeing a surge of soft, knotted bags in both leather and fabric. We first covered this emerging trend with Fendi's spring 2020 collection, which featured woven iterations of its ever popular Peekaboo bag. Now, we're seeing tons more of these bags from brands at every level. We found 11 options ranging from $30 to over $3,000, so whether you want to snag an afforable option that you can quite literally carry to the pool or you want a bag that's more for the everyday, we've got something for you.
