What do you know about the origin story of the bucket bag? Gaston-Louis Vuitton was the great-grandson of Louis Vuitton and designed the Noe utilitarian bag in 1932. It was meant to be used as a container for champagne bottles. It was difficult to transport a bottle of champagne in those days. This is a very fancy problem! Gaston-Louis Vuitton could solve this problem! The Noe bucket bag, Fashion World’s first, could hold five bottles of champagne. Four around the base, one in the middle, and one in each corner if placed upside-down. The drawstring closure held the bottles together and prevented them from bouncing around or breaking. This is a great solution! Instantly, the Noe bag became a favourite among partygoers.
The first bucket bag was not originally designed to be a women’s bag… but it has definitely evolved into one! The Louis Vuitton Noe is available in many sizes and variations. The iconic shape of the LV Noe is a major inspiration for the bucket bags that we love and use today. Bucket bags are loved for their practicality and spacious structure. The bucket bag trend really took off in recent years. Designers have reinvented bucket bags over the years. Bucket bags are now available in a variety of sizes and materials, while still keeping their iconic shape. Are you thinking of adding a bucket bag in your handbag collection.
