Is the "Backet" the Next It Bag Shape?
The bucket bag is one of those classic shapes that will never go out of style, so it comes as no surprise that the accessory is popping up everywhere this season. However, today we were introduced to a hybrid bucket-backpack silhouette we've never seen before (and are now kind of obsessed with). Meet the backet, our self-coined term for the new shape brought to us by Acne Studios.
The Swedish fashion label introduced its S/S 16 collection today, and its Trash bag instantly caught our attention. Its unique shape has everything we love about a bucket bag—the medium size, easy drawstring closure, and casual look—with the convenience of a backpack (because sometimes we just want to be hands-free).
The luxe retailer made the marine-inspired bags in two colorways, each constructed with leather and canvas. Sure, it'll cost you a pretty penny ($1100, to be exact), but the Italian-made backet will likely never go out of style.
