I’ve also known folks who stalked the Louis Vuitton website and saw it become available for purchase online. If neither of those strategies work, you can always go the preloved route . All in all, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is a great designer bag to invest in. It has a classic shape, is versatile and is conveniently sized. It is also a bag that will remain an active wardrobe piece forever, and is not dependent on a particular trend coming back in style.
Untreated leather is prone to water stains – meaning you need to check the weather before you venture out with your expensive bag. Perhaps one of the most desired Pochette Metis styles, the Monogram Reverse Canvas remains one of the most difficult versions to get your hands on. Its contrasting Monogram and Reverse Monogram prints make it truly unique, while its black leather top handle makes it an easy-to-maintain handbag. The Pochette Metis handbag is one of the last creations that Marc Jacobs designed for Louis Vuitton. It’s characterized by its structured yet sleek silhouette and its ultra-versatile style that makes it a great option as an everyday bag.
Instead, I will focus on matters, which might be pertinent to the model shown in this review, namely Pochette Metis in Empreinte leather. If like me you have a weakness for beautiful bags you might also enjoy my post on the following luxury items. But having young kids myself I can see how at this point in life it’s a bit tight for what you need.
And the price of the Pochette Metis makes no sense to me. To their credit, the Louis Vuitton corporate customer service agent was incredibly helpful. I was given store credit and able to select another bag – something more durable. Let’s discuss the ins and outs of this expensive and popular little bag in this Pochette Metis review.
In fact, it is nearly impossible to open the bag without having to use both hands, one to hold the handle and the other to support the trunk and operate the rather tricky lock. The bag has a flap opening with an S Lock closure, inside there are three compartments, two larger ones and a narrower slip pocket on the back inner portion. The textile lining is a grey material with a black vertical stripe throughout. On the rear of the bag is a pocket with zip closure again featuring gold hardware and a leather tab. The side profile of this bag is slightly reminiscent of an accordion-style silhouette.
Keep in mind, any review I share will always be based on aspects that are important to me, which may not be the same for you. Plus, you can put an asterisk next to all of this because I clearly thought this bag was much larger and that was totally my own user problem. While I can tell you things I find wrong with it, it’s a bag that I didn’t for a second think of returning. All of that aside, I totally understand why this is such a popular bag. The style pairs classic with casual so well while delivering all of the iconic Louis Vuitton nods we love. I have had my hands-on various Louis Vuitton handbags in real life both in the boutiques and in the wild too.
For a bag which is bound to be regularly used, Pochette Metis offers a good value for money. In addition, if you are lucky enough to land one in Monogram Canvas, this style is likely to preserve, and even increase, its value in time due to the scarcity of the model. Those who like to keep their bags in a pristine condition may also want take note of the fact that Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is prone to becoming a bit mucky. Firstly, there is the top handle which, due to the design of the bag, ends up being in frequent use. Unsurprisingly, the more we grab the handle, the more it collects residue from greasy hand creams, harsh alcohol-loaded sanitisers, sweat and dirt.
This listing is for hardware protecting clear stickers for the Pochette Métis by Louis Vuitton. Even though this blog is no longer 100% dedicated to petite fashion, businesses cater to this niche market will always have my support. If all these issues bother you, think twice about getting a Pochette Metis on canvas. It doesn’t necessarily bother everyone but some Pochette Metis owners feel that this front part of the lock is crooked. You can still bring it in but a Louis Vuitton Sales Assistant will ask if you have a receipt to identify the purchase.
It’s taken me months to adjust to our new norm, which I am sure goes for many of you as well, and now I want to focus on posts that you and I both love . Though many think the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is only a couple years old, it was first released in 2013. However, in 2018 it quickly became the must have bag from the brand.
It will not keep your personal items secure, but it’s also an exquisite one-of-a-kind detail that is exclusive to Louis Vuitton’s designs. A hard-to-find limited-edition style is the Infrarouge, a black and red version of the classic Louis Vuitton Monogram print. It has an olive green interior lining and silver-tone hardware. Other special versions include the Trunks and the Master’s Collection, which are very rare and are considered as highly collectible pieces with high resale values. I’ve always loved Louis Vuitton in fact as a child I remember fondly admiring the collaboration with artist Takashi Murakami. This is the first memory I have of taking an interest in the iconic luxury brand.
