This summer’s it bag can be traced back to a Japanese bamboo picnic bag from the 70s. LA label Cult Gaia has reproduced the classic half moon shaped tote into two sizes, both under $100. We love the bag for its unique shape and simple construction – it’s perfect to take from the beach to an evening out!
