You know that the bucket is the key shape of seasons to come when Burberry decides to release its latest FW15 bag in stores ahead of schedule.

Pre-launching the Bucket Bag before its ready-to-wear counterparts hit stores in July, the British heritage fashion house has selected 12 Burberry flagship boutiques — London, Paris, Barcelona, Hong Kong, and Shanghai among others — to carry a limited selection of its new silhouette.

The latest design to join the Burberry accessories family, the Bucket Bag is available in 12 different variations. Among them: soft English suede, animal print shearling, and tiered fringing in a variety of colourways.

However, if you're a die-hard mini collector, you might want to wait till November when the Baby Bucket Bag and Baby Bucket Backpack are released as part of the brand's spring/summer 2016 pre-collection — that coincidentally, just made its debut on the brand's menswear runway show at London Collections: Men
