Carrying a bucket bag today is like wearing a piece from Bridget Bardot’s accessory arsenal—it’s a polished treat for your own wearing and a visual treat for anyone lucky enough to see you in it. Whether it’s via behind-the-scenes shots or peeks into their daily lives, you have seen surely this trend worn by some of your favorite personal style bloggers and wondered what design house was responsible for the comeback.

While every major fashion house is reinventing the bucket bag for their collections, the most highly coveted bucket bag of the season and the one worn by celebrities and bloggers alike, comes from a little known design house founded only 3 years ago: New York City-based Mansur Gavriel.

Crafted from the finest Tuscan leather and featuring a red lined interior, the Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag is is an effortless way to bring the retro to the everyday.
