Dream Bucket Bag – Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag

May 5, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram, you would know that I am currently in Sweden for a 6-weeks business trip. I’ve been here for about a week now, and other than missing my family like crazy, I really enjoy every aspect of “living” in Stockholm (yes I live like a local here). This city was never on my travel radar as it’s just too far away from Australia, and to my pleasant surprise, Stockholm is such a lovely place to visit (but make sure not in winter…). It’s a beautiful charismatic European city, with a great selection of international food. And most importantly for the fashion lovers, the Scandinavians, if not better, are just as chic as the Parisians.

As you would expect, I did some serious shopping over the weekend, and I could not believe I found this Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket bag – it is the bucket bag of my dream! If there was one bag with a waiting list that rivals the Hermes Birkin, it would be this IT bag of the moment. I have been eyeing this bag for about half a year now and it’s never been available. Who would have known that I would find this in Sweden, which happened to be the only bag the shop received!

This bag fits me perfectly. The mini size is cute but still quite roomy to fit my everyday essentials in. The bag is made of smooth black leather with a soft buttery touch to it. It is very light as the leather is paper-thin, and there is a special hard coating inside which makes the bag feel solid and doesn’t lose its bucket shape. I particularly like the drawstring ties as it adds an effortless touch to such a minimalist design. The strap is adjustable so you can carry it either cross body or over the shoulder. As a designer handbag that is made in Italy, the price is very reasonable. Highly recommend if you are after a bucket bag – you can also try your luck here or here. Otherwise there are a lot of other great options available such as this Sophie Hulme bucket bag, or this cute one from See by Chloe.

I have already located where the Acne Studios and the Byredo shops are, so I am definitely heading there this weekend 😀
My bag has the silver interior, I don’t really mind it, but I agree that the red interior is even nicer!

Gorgeous bag! You’re so lucky you can travel to such great cities for work…but 6 week would be too long for me. Ha. I’m sure that was a looong flight from Australia!

Yes 6 weeks is wayyyy too long for me. As much as I love this city, I am terribly home sick! If it wasn’t that cold in Sweden, I would have brought my son with me 😛
