    Will the bucket bags go away now? It was cute a few years ago when The Row introduced the classic bucket shaped overpriced backpack but seeing every brand come out with bucket bags that all look identical is getting silly. I was walking through Neiman’s and shelf after shelf of bucket bags that all looked identical. Can they not come up with anything new or exciting?

    Michael Kors and Furla are good choices. The bags look good for the price.

    The Michael Kors just Looks like an Antigona and the Tory Burch like an Obsedia, IMO.

    THANKS for doing this article. I am happy buying a high end designer bag when I fall in love with it but don’t feel a bag has to have a certain label to be a great addition to my wardrobe. This gives me a couple of bags to check out. ????????

    I do, however, have an issue with contemporary designers as a whole. A lot of these bags are derivative of designer bags. While I don’t have a problem with that in theory, why can’t contemporary designers offer DESIGN? MK’s bag is the Antigona, buckets are done to death…

    This is a great post. I think that many of forget or take for granted that everyone with great taste (including many of us on Purseblog) can’t always afford the bags we so often lust after. For instance, I adore the Antigona, but that MK is a pretty nice looking and kinda fancy alternative in a price range that doesn’t hurt my wallet. Not all of us have thousands to blow, and not all of us like having to save up for a bag either. Some of us just have a comfortable price that we set- if something great comes along, we can purchase it without much thought or regret. As time goes on and our finances increase, so does that price. But for now, I appreciate getting a look for less when the less is still leather and made by some pretty great brands. High end level disposable income is my goal, but for now, I totally appreciate the working girl versions of my favorite designs.

      There’s a website called the RealReal and they offer a program called Affirm where you pay a portion of the price for a gently used bag over time! And the best part is, you get the bag up front!
      I’ve used it before and it’s so nice to be able to pay it off instead of having to save for months.

      I couldn’t agree more and I commend you for saying it. There are reasons these big designer bags cost so much; the “design”. They are the brain behind the trend. These trends kicks off and are made in more affordable brands. We see it in clothes, shoes, etc.
      MK does it and is out right open about it. But who cares? We all know that’s not a real Antigona. It says MK on it. He makes affordable luxury for those who’s budget wouldn’t otherwise allow them to have a gorgeous bag they could wear with pride. Also for those who CAN afford higher end but simply won’t pay 2,000 dollars.
      Keep doing what your doing MK.

  • I can see Michael Kors has released their Givenchy Antigona knockoff. I’m surprised it took this long.
