Inspired by an icon! Audrey Hepburn will always be a treasure, not only for her award-winning films but also for her incomparable sense of style — including her treasured baskets turned purses.
In honor of Hepburn’s May 4 birthday (she would have been 87), London-based and celeb-adored accessories brand Meli Melo has reimagined the Oscar-winning stunner’s signature accessory into a bucket style called Santina. It features textured leather for a “basket” effect shaped into a cylindrical style, plus a top handle, a longer strap and a suede drawstring.
Launching on May 4 on melimelo.com (and in stores in August), the $590 purse comes in three colors — black, blue and tan.
Hepburn was known to carry a basket in lieu of a more traditional handbag in the 1950s. The Breakfast at Tiffany’s star paired the accessory with everything from day dresses to fur coats.
