We love it when form and function collide. The sturdy bucket bag is a design meant for practical women with much to lug from sippy cups to sleek portfolio cases. Canvas lining and nylon straps will often feature prominently. But make it bubble gum pink and the connotations start to seem a little less clear. And we grant if it were just some frustrating pink canvas bag meant to make pragmatic women feel as if there is some whimsy in their lives we might not give it a second glance. But make it a Marni Bucket Shoulder Bag in Rouge Red Eco Leather and we are liable to throw around the word genius and inspired. Call us a slave to labels but only Consuelo Castiglioni could help bring together these disparate worlds and not make us feel as if its a bag meant for a frustrated Park Slope mom, an insufferable graphic design geek girl, or a McKinsey consultant.
