The Bucket Bags We're Toting To Work And Brunch

Fendi logo-printed fringed leather shoulder bag, US$2,503 (S$3,383.81) from Net-a-Porter
Love Fendi? Then this piece that sports its logo all over is the perfect way to show it. The print is created in collaboration with Instagram artist @hey_reilly. Our favourite bit is the swishy beaded fringing that gives it a cool movement. Go all out with the logomania and finish with the Fendi tracksuit and chunky dad sneakers. Bucket hat required. Furla Corona bucket bag, price available in store
If straw bags are too casual for work and leather bags seem too much for the beach, then this straw-leather hybrid is the perfect in-between. Featuring Furla’s newest Shield logo, the adjustable and detachable strap also allows you to carry this bucket number as a crossbody. Celebrate summer and pair this with a white linen dress for the beach and for work, the bag will add a casual edge to a tailored pantsuit. Furla boutiques are located in places such as Paragon, Ion Orchard and Raffles City. Mansur Gavriel calf bucket bag, S$1,100
Mansur Gavriel’s bucket bags have been a cult favourite amongst fashion lovers and bag collectors alike, due to their simple and clean silhouette. We picked this forest green number because it remains neutral enough to pair with a variety of your outfits, but isn’t boring like the staple black or tan colour. Gucci Rajah medium bucket bag, price available in store
This gorgeous bag sends tingles down our back. The sleek blue suede is contrasted against maroon leather trims to make this Gucci iteration a contemporary piece. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that the Italian house has adorned it with a crystal-crusted enamel tiger head. So deliciously luxe. Pair this with a dark pleated midi dress and white sneakers for a sporty (yet stylish) ensemble. Gucci boutiques are located at Paragon, Ion Orchard and Marina Bay Sands. Mulberry Hampstead small textured-leather bucket bag, US$900.74 (S$1,217.71) from Net-a-Porter
Clean lines and modern designs are emblematic of Mulberry. But what makes this bag even more special is the use of textured leather and gold hardware that add a dose of sophistication to the piece. The grained leather can also withstand scratches and stains better than smooth leather. Go geek chic and throw on a shirt dress with this bag. Finish off by slipping into a pair of brogues. Saint Laurent Talitha small bucket bag in ponyskin-look leather with a leopard print, US$2,250 (S$3,041.78)
Can’t get enough of animal prints? Show off your love for the animal kingdom with this Saint Laurent number. For work, wear with a beige midi dress to pare-back on the bold print. See By Chloé Tony textured-leather bucket bag, US$403.80 (S$545.90) from Net-a-Porter
Gold hardware and rings break the monotony of this black leather piece. Plus, this bucket bag is built with a dedicated slip pocket for your phone so you don’t have to spend time ransacking your bag to hunt for it (been there!). Go with a sleek, sharp blazer-trousers combo to jazz up the bag’s modern silhouette. Topshop studded velvet bucket bag by Koko Couture, S$66.90
Up the ante on your after-hours outfit with this slinky suede and gold studded number from Topshop.
