We can blame our recent obsession with bucket bags on Mansur Gavriel and the brand's delightfully colorful collection. But, that's not a bad thing — it just opened our eyes to the wonder, convenience, and practicality of the accessory. Its compact shape has Mary Poppins capabilities: What appears to be a small leather sack can actually hold all of your essentials. But, it's also not too vast that you have to fumble through all manner of lipsticks and old MetroCards every time you grab your keys. And, with its shoulder strap, your hands are free to text, grab coffee — whatever.
Unfortunately, getting your hands on a Mansur Gavriel original is a tad more competitive now than it used to be, but there are plenty of other bucket bags to fall in love with. Ahead, we give you 30 reasons to fall in love, including an eye-catching metallic Saint Laurent and the Mansur Gavriel number that started it all. Get ready to jump on the bucket-bag bandwagon.
