I completely understand that women need to do a lot of research before they purchase a handbag - because it quite simply is a huge investment.
It’s like a marriage of style, you’re going to have it forever and it needs to follow your life’s journey along-side you, quite literally. And with this awareness of longevity, comes the pledge of knowing you truly love it and are investing your money cleverly. Enter the bucket bag.
The bucket bag achieved handbag fame about three years ago – they were everywhere. This was due to the new wave of minimalist accessory labels releasing super sleek, clean design with an attainable price tag.
The bucket bag has managed to outgrow the short-lived trend curse, and is now firmly sitting as a wardrobe staple amongst the sling, tote, and shoulder bag styles. If you are yet to try one, now is the time. The classic silhouette with carry-all capabilities will always be in style, and now you will find plenty of options for colours, prints, fabrics, handles and hardware.
The bucket bag appeals to so many women as it is unfussy and spacious. The drawstring top provides peace of mind that you’re not going to lose anything. It’s more than big enough to hold your necessities, yet smaller and less bulky, than your regular tote. The bucket bag is really the perfect size for every day. And it’s an easy style to pair with any outfit, throw over your shoulder and away you go.
Balincourt’s range of everyday essential bags includes a sculptural bucket bag in black vegetable tanned leather, with a contrasting red interior, and gold highlight hardware. Balincourt have invested time to make sure all styles in their range exist to make your life easier. And they’re limited edition, so you won’t be seeing them all over town - coming soon.
