There will always be bag trends, but every couple of years there’s a bag so powerful that the mere sight of it causes impulse purchases everywhere. Mansur Gaviel’s bucket bag did just that and was even crowned the first post-recession “It” bag by Business of Fashion in 2015. waiting in the thousands, but in 2022 it’s also causing the unexpected resurgence of the bag style he put on the map.

Right now there are a lot of bags coming in. The Balenciaga Le Cagole being a staple that everyone in Hollywood seems to own and everyone on TikTok seems to want. But there is also a recurring theme: since the start of the pandemic, people want practical bags more than ever. Obviously, they want the type of bags that can easily be slung over your shoulder and preferably hold a lot of stuff. It was only a matter of time before the timeless bucket bag started popping up everywhere, and now Mansur Gavriel has a whole new take.

The brand recently launched the Lilium bag, an evolution of the iconic bucket bag style inspired by lilies. Just looking at the bag is enough to make you dream of walking through a botanical garden, mainly because the drawstring alludes to the opening of the buds and the revealing petals. It’s also the type of bag you’d want to take with you to the park as it will hold everything you need for a weekend outing.

Floriana Gavriel told us she’ll use the word “bloom” to describe the latest design: “It’s like a flower opening, with beautiful golden proportions and a thoughtful form inspired by nature.” Rachel Mansur adds that the shape is classic and it’s always hard to predict bag trends, but she’s “excited about larger bags and the reimagining of the classic bucket bag shape.” While the price of the new Lilium ranges from $745 to $895, there are still plenty of classic Mansur Gavriel bucket bags that cost less than $500, which is a major steal when it comes to viral designer bags.

If you need more proof that bucket bags will gain popularity, look no further than trending North Star Katie Holmes, who was spotted with the bag style in September and then again in November. Suki Waterhouse partied with one to kick off the New Year while wearing a yellow Saks Potts coat, Reese Witherspoon posed with one of her own designs on Draper James’ Instagram, and Jennifer Aniston was spotted aboard a plane to Hawaii with one by Céline last month. As history likes to repeat itself (especially when talking about trend cycles), it’s only a matter of time before they’re all spotted with the Lilium bag, which Instagram fashion girls are already obsessed.

Thankfully, unlike 2015, the bag isn’t as difficult to acquire (yet) and is a must-have for the season. Turns out flowers for spring can be revolutionary, at least when you carry them in the form of a sculptural bag that looks like it’s in bloom.
