How to Make Wicker the Star of Your Summer Wardrobe

Ready to be in a good mood?


Stylist Calvy Click got into wicker back when the Jane Birkin-lovefest began to grow on social. That IG-infamous wicker basket she wore as a purse started to trend, and Calvy got the bug as all bugs happen: against her will. She ordered one on Etsy (“Baaaaaahhh,” she emailed me when I asked what prompted her idea for this shoot, “because I’m a fashion sheep like that sometimes. Ugh I know”), but when her bag arrived, rather than feel like the dreaded everyone else, she started to think about how good style means taking something and making it your own, which kicked off “a full-blown wicker obsession.”

Wicker is perfect for for the final bits of spring that peter out into hot, hot summer. (Have you been outside today? Lordy and hello sunshine.) Wicker is light, playful, reminiscent of a picnic basket or a beach tote without being too pack-a-lunch, or too where’s-the-ocean, and this season, the material isn’t just relegated to predictable shapes. So why not blow said full-blown obsession out even further?

With photographer Tory Rust behind the lens — who chose Coney Island as a playground for the wicker to run wild and free, Click put her dreams of woven-twigs together. If this doesn’t get you pumped to play mental hookie, I don’t know what will.
