Summer must be just around the corner! There are raffia and straw handbags popping up left and right. They are literally everywhere! These summery materials do not have to come in beach tote form though. Yes, beach totes are twice as nice when made of raffia or straw. But other styles can look just as fabulous. Check out this cute little shoulder bag you see pictured here and you will see what I mean.

I have always been a fan of Missoni’s diffusion line. The pieces are so playful and fun, adding a unique twist to the traditional Missoni-look. That is probably why this particular bag caught my eye. I love the natural and black stripes making up the raffia exterior. The combination is somewhat muted, but there is definitely enough contrast going on to give this piece a striking look. I am also loving all the playful details. The chartreuse leather trim adds an unexpected pop of color. The multi-colored chain strap is also really fun! But it was the embroidered lips embellishment that really set this piece apart. The word “gaudy” certainly crossed my mind when I first thought about it. These lips really aren’t that bad though. Perhaps the muted shade of pink is what saved them, they aren’t screaming at you like a pair of red lips would.
This shoulder bag would make an adorable summer accessory. Simply pair it with some casual pieces, no fuss required.
