On our recent trip to Italy, we ended up on a boat one day, headed to the island of Nerano for lunch. On board, was a darling couple, from Dallas, we had met the night before. My new friend, Laurie, had a chic straw bag that caught my eye, so of course I had to ask about it.
Turns out it’s a hand made straw bag by designer, Pamela Munson. Inspired by straw bags carried by her mother and grandmother, Pamela drew upon her 15 years in high end fashion (Chanel, Oscar de la Renta, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bergdorf Goodman) to create a capsule collection of “classic with a twist” straw bags. I think it’s the thick grosgrain ribbon that drew me in…but this bag also has such great shape and can hold a lot.
With this fresh, crisp take on a summer carryall…I think Pamela Munson has success in the bag!
