Trend To Try: Bucket Bags
Taking their cue straight from the '90s, bucket bags have been enjoying a steady comeback for several seasons and showing no signs of abating, are carried through to AW14 in an array of hybrid styles and textured finishes.
From the NN14 Noe Bag - sported by models for Marc Jacob's final collection for Louis Vuitton to Dior's Diorific bucket-cum-tote interpretation, SS14 kick-started the trend for the humble, slouchy silhouette, while for AW14 the bucket threw tougher, more studded shapes, with Stella McCartney embellishing her Falabella bag with chain and whipstitch edging, while Alexander Wang plays with industrial rivets studded against the butter-soft leather of the Diego bucket bag.
And tipping the scales when it comes to bucket bag makeovers, MCM offer up their take on the trend in the signature monogram print, scattering studs and sparkling jewels across the Mini Visetos drawstring bag.
Whether worn cross-body or held top handles at the wrist, the bucket bag's versatile shape means it can pack plenty of daily can't-leave-home-withouts and still retain its cool laid-back silhouette.
