You may have had an array of exciting activities doodled on your 2020 bucket list, most of which will now remained unticked. But in lieu of a list, may we present the benefits of a bucket bag to you instead. The shape of this wardrobe staple was a stalwart on the S/S 2020 catwalks – presented as a grown up, elegant option, somewhere between spring’s most miniature and XL styles. The benefit of the bucket bag lies in its voluminous shape, which allows you to practically carry all your essentials for modern life over your shoulder, including your hand sanitiser.

We’ve looked to Loewe, Celine, Prada and Chanel for practical options in natural tones, that reflect our desire for timeless dressing. Loewe’s Balloon bag is a new addition to the Madrid label’s covetable accessories arsenal, featuring a smooth drawstring closure, and an alluringly inflated shape. Also weaving magic is Prada’s Tress bag, which features a bucket silhouette laced from soft leather. At Celine and Chanel, metal hardware brings a vintage-inspired touch to this hands-free style, suitable for those in search of chic, Left Bank-inspired dressing. Bucket list? With these covetable accessory options, you'll forget you ever had one.
