Here’s a super casual Kirsten Dunst leaving the gym in LA with a Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag. Celebs carry all manner of fancy designer bags to the gym, but this one gets us particularly excited because Mansur Gavriel is a fabulous New York-based brand that’s only in its second season of production. The company is basically brand new, and its bags are great – simple, minimalist and made of Italian leather. Amanda actually carries the same bag that Kiki has in these photos, and she loves it. It’s super lightweight and made of beautiful materials. Mansur Gavriel bags are also mercifully affordable – this bag retails for only $495.
But now the bad news: Mansur Gavriel has recently been declared “the next big thing” by almost every online fashion news outlet out there (including PB), and they’ve been scooped up by fashion types in the know at a blazingly fast pace. So of course, this bag is completely sold out, and the brand won’t be able ship more until the end of the month, and then again in December. If you MUST have the Bucket Bag (and we agree that you absolutely MUST), you can stare at it longingly here.
[Editor's Note: Here's what I know about upcoming availability of these bags, straight from the designers. The October delivery will happen in a few days, it will be the smaller of the two upcoming shipments to retailers and will not include black-with-red Bucket Bags, but does include a couple other colors options. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org, they will help you figure out which retailers will carry the color combo you're looking for. The late December delivery will be to Net-a-Porter, among others, and it'll include the black-with-red Bucket. I hope that helps everyone who's been searching for this bag! -Amanda]
