It’s no secret that bucket bags are one of the biggest trends in fashion as of late, with nearly every fashionista snapping Instagram pics with their favourite designer bag.  We’ve tried and tested multiple bucket bags, whether in classic black or with a pop of color in a sleek tan or burgundy.   A local favourite has edged out the competition and emerged as our favourite bucket bag, the Fiko-Fiko, a Sometime by Asia creation.

The Perfect Bucket Bag

The synthetic leather Fiko-Fiko is, as designer and co-founder of Sometime by Asia claims, #theperfectbucketbag.  We love the simple and minimalistic design and choice of colours.  While many bucket bags are available only in classic black or tan, the Fiko-Fiko is available in a variety of colours, including forest green, wine red (a medium-toned burgundy), iron grey (a soft blue grey), black tangy (a classic black), and two leather-toned bags, sherwood tan (a light, milky tan) and ochre brown (a bright, more vintage brown).  For a look at the complete collection, check out the Niko-Niko collection on

An Instagram Favourite

Taking a cue from Instagram darlings, we prefer colours like forest green and burgundy.  Like Vivy Yusof, we recommend pairing colourful bucket bags with classic black outfits, which allow the bags to perfectly complement a dark silhouette.  With many opting for a classic black bag, the colourful is also a way to tackle the bucket bag trend without falling into the trap of wearing the same as everyone else.

Our favourite feature? The Fiko-Fiko has a unique inner lining, whether the pinky red lining of the iron grey edition or the yellow lining with the forest green, we appreciate the attention to colourful details that make this bag unique, and not just another reproduction of a mainstream trend.
