Fontanelli offers a relaxed take on the classic bucket bag with this multicolored striped number.
This bucket is more squat, and more slouchy than the average. That works with the gentle spring-time toned stripes and gathered top to create a look that's perfect for lakeside picnics and lunches at al fresco cafes.
This bucket bag offers more luxury than many casual accessories though. It's made of suede accented with real leather stripes. These high quality materials are complemented with rich polished gold-toned hardware and whip-stitched handles.
The interior is spacious and kitted out with a zip and cell phone pocket. I would have appreciated more features to make this generous space more manageable, but this isn't the most disappointing thing for me. Rather than using real leather as it does outside, Fontanelli has opted for a cheap synthetic alternative. Perhaps it figured no one would know what's tucked inside, but that corner cutting is unfortunate.
This is a lovely bucket bag, and its $490 price tag isn't exorbitant for an accessory of this size of quality. However that's still more than I'd want to pay for something with such a relaxed style.
