Because every girl needs a bucket bag.
You may have noticed that bucket bags are back in a big way and we know why. The all-occasions shoulder bag is the perfect size, not too small and not too large. Plus, they are a great staple and not distinctive enough that they'll go out of fashion in one season.
The rise in popularity of the style can also be pinned to Mansur Gavriel. The label introduced a chic and simple bucket bag that took the fashion world by storm. In fact, last year the style was sold out in most stores despite the $500-$1000 price tag. Just like the Hermes Birkin bag, you actually had to put your name on a waitlist if you wanted in on the "it" bag of the moment.
It's easy to see why the bag has been so popular. The Mansur Gavriel bucket bag is elegant, simple, functional and complements almost every outfit. And it doesn't hurt that it was seen on the arm of every mover and shaker in the fashion world.
Thanks to the popularity of this cult bag, it's hard to walk into a store today without seeing some kind of variation of the Mansur Gavriel original. So, if you love this style but aren't prepare to shell out several hundred dollars, it's not hard to get the look for less.
We've had a search through the high street stores ourselves and managed to find a few truly beautiful alternatives. If you want all the style of the cult bag of the season without dropping a small fortune on the purchase, then scroll through to see our top picks.
