Image: The DKNY catwalk was bursting with striking bucket bags for spring
Earlier this month The Guardian newspaper dubbed it, “the skinny jeans of bags, the trend that won’t go away”. And the sporty bucket bag is proving to be quite a keeper. It returned to the spotlight last spring when countless designers championed it as the ultimate anti-it bag to carry the day. The style has in fact been around since 1932, when it was created by Gaston-Louis Vuitton for the essential task of transporting his champagne bottles. Over the years the capacious carry-all has appealed to our desire for ease as much as style. This spring the tote is establishing a firm foothold with refreshing takes to suit many tastes and pockets. Enjoy our pick of them.
