Trending: Bucket Bags

Bucket List


It all started with Laurel Pantin’s video for Look TV’s “A Stylish Life.” The opening scene shows Lucky magazine’s former fashion market editor sitting on her UES stoop, sharing the spotlight with her Mansur Gavriel bucket bag. After that, the purse quickly became the Holy Grail of bucket bags, coveted for its minimalist style, simple silhouette, versatility, and reasonable price.
We’re not all so fortunate to have a Mansur Gavriel, but lucky for us the whole fashion world has hopped on the bucket bag bandwagon.

Mood Board Monday: Gray

Bona Style Gray Moodboard

I have a weakness for gray in every shade, especially when it’s cold outside. I love it light-hued, heathered, and strewn across my couch in the form of a comfy, cashmere throw. I love it as a rich, charcoal turtleneck that warms my senses and my skin. I love matching it with shy pastels during the day and brazen metallics at night. I love it for its muted elegance and for its demureness. I love that I can spell it two different ways: gray or grey. And most of all, I love it for all of the possibilities it offers.

  1. T by Alexander Wang Grey Scuba Stripe Jumper, $350.
  2. Burberry Beauty Nail Polish in Storm Grey, $22.
  3. J.Crew Covered Hangers, $22.50.

This Fall, Hearts are Aflutter
