The bucket bag continues to hold its position as one of the most trend-focused accessory shapes on the market and the Madison is our SS17 interpretation. Inspired by traditional silhouettes but given a unique twist, it has statement turned-out edges and features subtle additional details that nod to vintage designs. It’s hand-crafted and finished in Italy using the same premium-quality leather as the Bleecker and it comes in a striking oversized design that’s at once stylish and unquestionably functional. The drawstring top feature can be used to slightly alter the shape of the top opening and there’s an internal magnetic fastening and a zipped pocket for additional security. Much like the other bags in the SS17 series, the Madison is edged with hand-painted detailing that gives it a personal touch. The bonded lining showcases the precision craftsmanship and premium quality of the leather and it’s finished with a removable leather strap that has been carefully positioned to provide the perfect drop when styled over the shoulder.
The Madison backpack follows the same design specification as its bucket bag counterpart but it’s slightly smaller in size to suit its alternative styling suggestion. The back straps are adjustable in length and completely removable, as is the structured top strap, so it captures two of the season’s most covetable designs in one.
HOW TO STYLE IT
“The Madison is a trend-focused piece that you can carry to put a detailed spin on understated looks. The oversized structure is really practical but it’s the design details like the hand tack side seams and vintage inspired construction that will really elevate a look.”
