While I’m not a fan of printed bags, there’s something about Carven’s charming designs that gets me every time. Even in gray, this safari roars to life, making you long for a trip to the savannah. I love the brand’s Paris print, too, and the etoile design on my Louboutin espadrilles (just not all of them worn at once!). The best summer bags are full of whimsy and easy, breezy features like the tote’s magnetized closure. Buckled beige straps add a little structure, pulling the tote in at the sides, yet at its heart, this bag is completely laid-back. It’s strictly for vacation (on safari, maybe?) or relaxing weekends. Clearly this isn’t an entirely sensible purchase – it’s an emotional one. Even if a bag won’t serve many purposes, as long as it makes you feel good, sometimes that’s just enough. Available on Ssense for $995.
