The bucket bag shape is the hottest must-have bag for the season – and as a new classic bag shape it’s one that is well worth investing in. So we’ve had a look around for you and discovered the new Emmanuelle bag from Saint Laurent Paris; the perfect bucket bag.

The Saint Laurent Emmanuelle is the classic “bucket” shape but it also has a removable tubular handle and a removeable and adjustable shoulder strap so it’s a little more versatile than a classic bucket bag.

Made of calfskin leather, the Emmanuelle has suede lining, a drawstring top closure with an exterior zip pocket (super handy so you don’t have to go digging around in your bag for your essentials) and brass “feet” so the bottom won’t get dirty if it’s on the ground.

Some of the various versions of the new Saint Laurent Emmanuelle bucket bag

The Emmanuelle is available in a number of sizes – including an awesomely cute mini version; there’s even one with fringe! – and leathers including a croc embossed version that looks great; and comes in classic colours like black, tan and red.

These are some of the reasons why we think this is the perfect bucket bag; there’s bound to be one that will suit your style.

The Saint Laurent Paris Emmanuelle bucket bag is available from the brand’s boutiques located at ION Orchard #01-25 and The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands #B1-116.
