Every few years, designers try to give belt bags (often known in the US by their more pedestrian name: fanny packs) their day in the sun, usually to limited-at-best success. These pushes usually coincide with a general trend toward 70s neo-bohemian fashion, and since that’s what we’re in the middle of right now, there are suddenly a lot of belt bags available.
Mini bag haters, shield your eyes. As fall arrivals come in left and right, designers have somehow found even more bags to shrink down, including a bunch that had somehow escaped the mini treatment in the past.
Whether you think of them as scourge or savior, bucket bags are back for another season of dominance in the accessories market. More brands than every are throwing their hat in the ring for this popular style, so if you can’t get your hands on the Mansur Gavriel version, don’t fret–there are lots of options at every price point imaginable.
No one would describe me as a maximalist. I carry a Mansur Gavriel bucket bag almost every day, which is almost the same as wearing a sandwich board instructing people to ask me about my love for minimalism.
