The simple string/net bag has been making cameos on the street and across runways. This cheap and chic alternative is being sported various way; wrapped around the wrist, more elevated with leather strap handles or pared back. Hillier Bartley included a string bag made from black netting in her collection and appeared in the Fall 2017 Vetements lookbook. One can use the netting to carry her purse and whatever random daily essentials she felt like tossing in that day.
The best part is the affordability. You can conveniently buy a net bag from 8-18 bucks – you can’t beat that! Cheap, yet chic but not digging deep into your pockets. On the most expensive side of things, a purse meets net bag can cost up to $3,465 from Vetements and for a Staud cotton net as moreau macrame will cost at the retail price of $375. Nothing but net.
