Bucket bags: They’re now for winter!
I'm noticing a surplus of bucket bags on celeb arms for the first week of December. Of course, I guess this is the only place bucket bags have left to go: winter. Then they'll transition to being a year-round option forever, or disappear completely next season, as I have been expecting them to do for nigh on three years now. But still, they persist. I suppose they've earned their place in handbagdom and I should just accept that they'll be around indefinitely. Or at least until Christmas.
Here's a primo shot of Alessandra Ambrosio leaving the nail salon in Santa Monica. She's carrying her recent favorite, the Louis Vuitton Neonoe Bag. Shop the Louis Vuitton Neonoe Bag via Louis Vuitton ($1,450)
Diane Kruger carried this Simon Miller Bonsai Bucket Bag to an interview at the AOL Build Series. We included Simon Miller on a recent list of "6 Indie Brands to Watch Right Now", and I think that choice was well warranted. Shop the Simon Miller Bonsai Bucket Bag via Net-a-Porter ($850)
Here's Hilary Duff, also favoring a bucket bag this week while grabbing some food with a friend at Joan's on Third. Her bag is the Givenchy Infinity Bucket Bag, which I believe is a recent acquisition of hers. Shop the Givenchy Infinity Bucket Bag via mytheresa.com ($1,603)
What Irina Shayk wore to the opening of the new Versace store in London was probably slightly more exciting than what she carried, but of course, all of it is Versace. Shop Versace Bags via farfetch.com
British actress Lily James was spotted carrying a chic, compact Alexander McQueen Box Bag while out with a friend in NYC. Shop the Alexander McQueen Box Bag via Saks ($1,790)
Here's Billions star Malin Akerman, running errands in NYC with a black leather Saint Laurent Mongramme Kate Bag. This is a much bigger version of this bag than we usually see. Shop the Saint Laurent Kate Monogramme Bag via Nordstrom ($2,350)
Mary J. Blige
And we'll round out the week with Mary J. Blige heading into a Kimmel appearance with a bulky Birkin to promote her latest music and/or movies and/or awards for being an icon.
