This just might be the cutest bag ever. Most “bucket bags” aren’t actually buckets…but this one is, literally. As in, with a fully open top and a real handle, as if you’re Jill going up the hill to fetch some water. Looks like old Jill has received a snobby makeover!
The laser-cut leather, Azzedine Alaïa’s signature, doesn’t just introduce optic elegance to the bucket. It also adds plenty of chic sophistication, elevating a totally unserious bag into something you can take virtually anywhere. To quote Cher Horowitz, it’s by, “like, a totally important designer!” Yes, this is expensive for a fun novelty bag, but it’s so damn cute, I really do think you will find more occasions than you think you will to wear it. Beside, for an Alaïa this is kind of a bargain!
On Matches for $1,106.
Pair with: Capitalize on the romantic vibe with a pink manicure that’s just sweet enough (but not saccharine). Jin Soon’s French Lilac is a shade that walks the line as you transition out of summer. On NET-A-PORTER for $18.
