The authority on Handbags & purses

Bucket bags? Groundbreaking, we know! Much like a statement-making necklace or a coveted pair of heels, we all know that a serious arm candy will never stop our hearts from beating faster. The drawstring bag is quite frankly one of the most functional bags ever designed.

Seriously, the bucket bag hauls our day-to-day essentials while still maintaining a swingy and sturdy silhouette that conveniently cinches the top. When a bag is equally functional as it is fashionable, what’s not to love?

A bag that expands for all our schlepping (and sometimes more) while making us look effortlessly chic only means one thing and one thing only; we’ll be knee deep in designer bucket bags for as long as they exist!

From Mansur Gavriel to Sophie Hulme, we’ve picked ten designer bucket bags that work with everything.

1. Danse Lente Mini Lorna Leather Bucket Bag

With a lot more structure and versatility to boot, the Mini Lorna bucket bag instantly adds a little zing to your closet. It is perfectly suited for an important evening date or a casual day out.

The bag holds such an admirable quality, and every time it’s on display, people need to touch it! With a bag so beautiful, I’m sure you won’t mind if everyone asks you where you found it. Right?
