Ah, the bucket. Itâ€™s been one of mans most reliable tools for centuries and hereâ€™s proof that itâ€™s still continues itâ€™s legacy. For the coming fall season, Alexander McQueen gave the skulls a rest and went for the handy leather handbag thatâ€™s sure to please both the fashionista and the rocker chic in you.
Itâ€™s the Faithful Leather Bucket Tote and it arrives bigger and badder than all the other bucket bags out in the market right now. Rich leather forms the round classic silhouette of the tote while a hardcore belt keeps your essentials in place and tightly out of reach from everyone.
Although I must admit the belted detail is strangely cool, Iâ€™m not sure if itâ€™s cool enough to give in to. Besides the dangling belt detail, other features on this tote bring out the beauty and inimitable design of this piece. Silver chain links serve as the totes drawstrings rather than the typical leather strings found on most bucket bags. Another cool feature can be found at the base of this bag where an all-around zipper allows you to expand the height of your bucket for extra storage. I love the scarlet red lining and of course the chain straps rock. Ladies, whatâ€™s your input on this McQueen?
