I love bucket bags. I can’t exactly pinpoint why, maybe because they’re slightly boho? usually colorful? and mostly unstructured? I couldn’t live with that for an everyday bag I don’t think, but for summer, life seems a little more carefree, and maybe I could throw caution to the wind and carry such a bag?
I’m not in the market right now, but if I were, I’d probably choose the A.P.C. bag. It’s perfect for every season, and in a wonderful neutral color THAT IS NOT BLACK. I do also love the Jerome Dreyfuss Alain bag, and in that perfect bright yellow, and even the Alexander Wang Diego bag. I had a Diego when they first came out, but sold it because I found it to be sort of difficult to get into. Now, I wish I hadn’t.
Of course there are also great vintage options. Coach has some good ones, and check out Jennine’s vintage MCM.
What do you think of bucket bags? Which is your favorite? Do you own one?
