The innovator of the modern bucket bag is the famous French brand, Louis Vuitton. Known for its impeccable collection of luggage and trunks, it introduced the bucket bag as part of the women’s accessory department. Up until 1932, this bag was never designed or manufactured to be a part of women’s’ daily and personal use. It was then when Gaston-Louis Vuitton, the grandson of Vuitton founder, who decided to create the so-called Noe utilitarian bag. This bag was used for carrying champagne, precisely with its practical purpose of not having the bottles smashing into each other. Having that in mind, today’s modern bucket bag has a rectangular base that, if you try, can hold up to five bottles of champagne. The drawstring closure on the top is what keeps the top of the bottles together without them breaking. Pretty interesting and unique history, no?
