Nautical motifs are dominating the 2021 Spring/Summer trend, particularly crochets. Many designers have showcased this French textile technique on the runway--from tops, dresses, skirts, shoes, and even bags. 

In 2020, we have witnessed the popularity of the basket case bag featuring sustainable materials for that comfortable yet stylish aesthetics. 

Irish international fashion designer Simone Rocha welcomed this trend during her London Fashion Week, while Oscar de la Renta, known for his European luxury with American ease, introduced straw bags during the New York Fashion Week. 

The basket weave accessories became a sure hit trend not just on runways but also in the market as fashion enthusiasts and socialites have been sporting this on social media. 

Now, the 2021 Spring/Summer trend focuses on the fisherman-style showcasing netted accessories such as crochet bags. Although it is quite similar to the basket case bags, the technique used was mostly macrame featuring different materials like neoprene, mesh, or woven fabric. 

Moreover, famous fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Fendi and Alexander McQueen were spotted incorporating this bag trend during their recent fashion shows.
