After having this beauty in my handbag collection for over two years now, I am finally sharing my thoughts. This has to be one of my most asked about bags. Originally, I purchased the first version Louis Vuitton launched in February 2017 which was the monogram canvas version with black leather details. Check out this blog post to see what happen with that bag.

This bag is 10.2″ in height, 10.2″ in length & 6.9″ in width. I have the black Epi cowhide leather with smooth leather trim. The interior is a mircrofiber (also black) and has beautiful silver hardware.
The interior is separated into two areas by a zipped central flap pocket that is not detachable. There are no other pockets. Unlike the original version, this one comes with top handle that is removable as well as a shoulder strap that converts to a cross-body strap. That is also removable. And of course, this bag features a drawstring along the top.
Epi leather is such an under appreciated leather. It is so durable and structured. In the two years I’ve had this bag, it looks brand new. Still structured and has zero scratches on the leather. The versatility of this is the biggest pro for me. You can wear it as a top handle, cross-body and shoulder bag. Both straps are removable so you can add a different strap. Something I like to do is tie a bandeau or twilly around the top handle to give it a different look.
This bag is also very lightweight. Even once you start to fill it up, it still remains comfortable to wear. The craftsmanship is just amazing. No stitches have come undone. It’s as perfect as when it came home with me from the store.
The only con is that the bag does not become supple over time. I know I included the structure as a pro, which for me it is, but for you, it might not be. When worn crossbody, the structured silhouette can be bulky. Again, for me this isn’t a big deal but I thought I would point that out. Opt for the canvas Neo Noe is you want to be a little softer. Actually, another con would be that the interior is a black hole lol. I have grey bag organizers inside so I don’t have this problem but at first, it was hard to find my items.
Whether you are looking for the all leather version or the canvas version of this classic bucket bag, trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed, Queen. This bag is just so easy to care for, very low maintenance. As always, please let me know if you have any questions!
