The quintessential bucket bag is three things: functional, universal, and timeless. The style expands for all of our schlepping needs — one time, it hauled a laptop, a set of gym clothes, an arsenal of facial mists and lipsticks — and it still manages to pull off fun-sized. Ladies night-ready. Seriously, this 70s’-style swingy (and don’t forget sturdy) silhouette conveniently cinches at the top and retains its shape no matter how much we stuff into ‘em. Think: XXL bags, but with all the convenience of a petit receptacle.
The bucket bag has perched itself on a pedestal, looking down on all other ‘trendy’ bags that come and go as seasons pass. In fact, it has become such a staple that designers can’t help but bring it back time and again, season after season. For Spring/Summer 2018, Marc Jacobs and Fendi did just that, creating new renditions of the bucket bag in neon colourways and novel dinky sizes. We’ve picked out some of the best spring-ready bucket bags to get your hands on. From macrame netted styles, woven straw-types to quirky prints and zesty colours; here are the cutest ones to score for Spring 2018.
