While the style is totally timeless, the bucket bag definitely has seen a surge in popularity since Mansur Gavriel's version has been spotted on a boatload of style stars's shoulders. Like most of you, we've also often lusted after the NYC-based brand's now-iconic bag (and their backpacks...and shoes...and pretty much all their chic goods) but since we also like to give local lines plenty of love, we've gathered some of our favorite buckets by LA brands for your shopping pleasure.
Whether a candy-colored mini, a roomy canvas sack, or a classic leather version is what you're in the market for, this list ought to help you zero in on your dream bag. And for those of you with a budget in place, we've even included a handmade version that's priced well below the $200 mark.
