Fun fact: The first bucket bag to appear on scene was in 1932 when Gaston-Louis Vuitton created the Noé as a utilitarian bag to carry champagne in without breaking the bottles. The wide reinforced base was designed to hold five bottles while the drawstring closure cinched the bottles together so they wouldn't rattle around. Genius!

Over the years, the bucket bag has evolved in color and vibe while still maintaining its iconic shape. Designers like Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel of Mansur Gavriel have since made the classic style into their own. The duo introduced their brand by launching an iconic bucket bag in 2013. The minimalist accessory was so in demand that it garnered a waitlist and Business of Fashion dubbed it the "first post-recession It bag" in a 2015 article. Fast forward to 2020 and the love we have for the bucket bag silhouette is still going strong. It's become a constant in the fashion cycle and every few seasons, designers will churn out updates to this staple silhouette, whether it be a handwoven piece or an all-over logo style.

For this season, we rounded up our favorite bucket bags to shop right now. This handbag isn't going anywhere and yes, you can still totally use it to tote your bubbly around for the summer.
