The bucket bag is a staple. Not only can it fit your water bottle, wallet and a snack, it looks good with just about everything. But, as all good things, it must come to an end.
As the perfect place to spot emerging trends — and ones that are here to stay — New York fashion week has come out with a rival to the humble bucket bag: the top-clasp bag.
Ladylike and throwback in its shape, top-clasp styles have been spotted all over the city, from contemporary bauble versions to traditional 1940s iterations. And while they might not be paired with puffy prairie dresses (well, not all), this dainty take on handbagging is perhaps the biggest accessories takeaway from outside the shows. Whether it’s a supple leather or a pretty fabric, clasps are having a moment.
You might not see us giving up our bucket bag any time soon, but we’re totally on board for a top clasp bag to walk right into our lives. Please and thank you!
