Giving casual style a contemporary edge here’s why the bucket bag is the ideal everyday go-to

The classic bucket bag combines contemporary detailing with a casual, laid-back shape that makes it the perfect everyday carry-all. This season, updates on the bucket bag eschew simplicity in favour of origami-like forms and folds. From Saint Laurent’s studded number to Loewe’s relaxed Mini Hammock drawstring bag, embellishments offer added dimension, while varied strap lengths can be shouldered or held with ease.
