Whether you’re looking for a minimal look or something with a little more pizazz, the MK bucket bag fits the bill. These sleek bags were a hit on spring runways, but their timeless shape can be worn effortlessly year-round. They come in dark winter hues, or light flirty spring patterns and they shine even when dressed up with elegant lace or structured suiting. Stylishly secured with drawstrings, they’re easy to carry and super user-friendly. Some, like Hozen’s mini version, have two straps that allow the silhouette to be adjusted for different lengths of wear as chic shoulder or longer across the body bags.
While the bucket bag’s basic silhouette has remained unchanged for decades, contemporary brands have always been eager to re-image this versatile style. Mansur Gavriel popularized the look in the mid-2010s with a refined yet glittering take on the silhouette, while other labels like Nanushka and Anya Hindmarch crafted modern takes that are soft and refined.
MK has a handful of classic logo-printed bucket bags to suit any style, but the brand also offers reimagined styles like this Reed bag that infuses glamor into the utilitarian bucket silhouette with luxurious hardware and a belted feature. Finished in smooth leather, it’s punctuated by a detachable crossbody strap for versatile carrying options. The interior has a zip pocket and plenty of pockets for wallets, keys, cell phones and more. A padded pocket on the inside front wall is ideal for a tablet or laptop and there’s a medium-sized zippered compartment to hold sunglasses, makeup and a lip gloss or compact. MK bucket bag
