" Expensive Vs. Cheap: Jane Birkin's basket is the summer accessory "

In the 70's Birkin did not let go. Today it girls also do not go out on the street without the picnic suitcase. The brands took advantage and launched several models - some reach 200 €, others identical, fortunately, do not exceed 30 €. 

Whenever it was picked up by paparazzi, the story was repeated. It was in the mid-'70s and Jane Birkin did not go out on the street without the wicker basket. The accessory did not miss an event in the late afternoon, nor a day of shopping - even on the outings with his crazy love Serge Gainsbourg, the English actress and singer did not dispense the accessory - who knows to throw it at the head of the boyfriend, with whom he had a tempestuous relationship, in case something went wrong. 

Therefore, it is not surprising that the kind of oval picnic basket is now a trend, because, after all, fashion is made up of cycles that repeat themselves. Although it's hard to see how anyone can be comfortable with such a wallet - you can not snuggle into it at peak hours on the subway and even Jane Birkin, told the former CEO of Hèrmes to "The Telegraph", that she dropped everything. which she carried in the basket during a flight to London in 1981 - it girls no longer dispense with it. An hastag has already been created (#janebirkinbasket) dedicated to the original basket.  

But why buy outside if the work in wicker are part of the Portuguese heritage? This is the case of the baskets sold in the online store La Petite Sardine - has a 100% Portuguese model of "Birkin Basket" (it was affectionately known) at 29 €. To make it more fun - or at least more personalized - you can always hang a handkerchief. Or maybe Christmas ornaments. It might be that fashion take.
