There’s only one bag you need this autumn. Well, actually, that’s a big lie. You need lots. Lots and lots of bags! But one of those bags most definitely should be the bucket.

As with most must-have trends, the style of the bucket bag originates from one very beautiful and very luxe, authentic product. In this case, the original bucket bag is by Mansur Gavriel, a New York brand with a stunningly simple style ethos. They have a range of bags, all superb, but the one that sparked a worldwide craze is their convertible bucket bag. They’re sold out everywhere (there’s a waiting list, obviously) and they retail for around $700 (although some colours are less).

We can’t get enough of the bucket bag, it’s a versatile carry-all that’s simple design will see it stick around for many seasons to come.
