I’ve always loved the bucket bag

and I don’t think they’ve ever really gone out of style.  Although right now it’s very “of the moment” and most designers seem to feature one.

A friend of mine just bought one in a very neutral shade in between white and beige but now she’s not sure whether she wants to keep it.  Maybe after seeing these she’ll change her mind.

style & substance – on my “bucket” list

is a champagne carryall – the Louis Vuitton iconic Noé bucket bag which has just been re-released in various shades of leather and monogram canvas.

In 1932, a Champagne vintner commissioned Louis Vuitton to design a carryall for his precious wares and voilà – the original Noé bag was born.  The result – a simple leather bucket bag that safely and stylishly housed five bottles of champagne – four upright and  a fifth place upside down in the middle.  Now I know why I always loved this bag!

 The bag came to represent the free-spirited, effervescent lifestyle of liberated women.

 Now, 81 years later, and available starting this month you can find the pint size version – the Noé BB, more suited to the bare essentials – and room enough for a Veuve Clicquot mini or Sofia Coppola blanc de blanc, possibly both.
