Sometimes, the bags with the most staying power are those that have originated from ideas with entirely different purposes – other than merely being bags.


One of Louis Vuitton’s most famous LV bucket bag styles was created to carry champagne bottles and has since evolved to become a versatile bag capable of carrying more than just beverages. In the ultra-luxury world, the Noe and Neonoe bucket bags from Louis Vuitton have surpassed expectations. The LV Noe and Noenoe have proven their staying power and continue to be sought after, given the range of size and style options. Find out more about these iconic bucket bags from Louis Vuitton.

The Louis Vuitton Noe Is The First Designer Bucket Bag to Be Created 

If you Noe, you Noe. The Louis Vuitton Noe bag was created in 1932 as a custom order for a champagne producer who wanted a stylish bag to accompany their bubbly. It was strategically designed to carry five bottles of champagne. Crafted with Louis Vuitton’s signature monogram coated canvas, the Noe bucket bag has a distinctive cylindrical shape and a sturdy drawstring closure, ensuring the safe transport of delicate bottles. 

Over the years, the design of the Noe captured the attention of many looking for a unique and practical bag. As the decades passed, the Louis Vuitton Noe bag gained greater popularity, transitioning from its utilitarian roots into a functional bucket bag in the fashion world.
