I Really Like This Louis Vuitton Monogram Wallet on Chain

New in, it's inspired by the Sac Recoleta handbag from the 2000s

Another day, another archive-inspired design.

But seriously, I don’t know how to introduce these latest (oldest?) designs from our favorite design houses anymore, as with each season comes a new cohort of revivals, and even I am getting tired of listening to myself talk about them. However, the latest, which comes to us from Louis Vuitton, is one I actually really like. And those who love the classic Pochette Accessories will likely be fans of this trendy new bag too.

New In, Inspired by the Old

For spring 2023, Louis Vuitton again looks to its archives to introduce its latest monogram bag. Inspired by the Sac Recoleta bag from the 2000s, the Louis Vuitton Ivy Bag is a wallet-on-chain style carryall that feels anything but dated. With a Vachetta leather shoulder strap and a sleek silhouette that easily tucks under the arms, it feels like an elevated version of the often out-of-stock Pochette Accessories.

The Wallet On Chain Ivy bag features a thin baguette-like body with a flap finish and an adjustable strap for shoulder carry or longer crossbody wear. The gold-toned chain adds a bit of a dressed-up touch, allowing this bag to easily transition from day to night. Both straps are completely removable, so you can wear them both together or use the leather strap for daytime wear and the gold chain strap for nights out.

The interior of the bag has 3 card slots and an interior zippered pocket, so you can skip a wallet or card case and instead utilize the interior for your phone and other small essentials. Overall dimensions are 9.3 x 4.7 x 1.7, and the retail is $1,760 via Louis Vuitton.

What do you think?

This is cute but *so* not worth the $1760 (plus tax) price tag 🙄 I do like that both the chain and the strap are removable so you can play around with different straps or wear it as a clutch… still, it should not be above $1300-1500 at most.

I know a lot of people will love this, but this is the most boring and uninspired design I have ever seen. It’s a no for me.

The LV website stated that the bag won’t be shipped for 27-41 days due to high demand.

The only 2000 era’s bag i like is the pochette accessories. Easy to use since its zip and because of the shoulder strap.

You may as well just buy a vintage mini looping bag. Same vibe.

I keep saying this but they need to STAHP with the reissues. It’s exhausting, overpriced, and no one cares, which is why they keep getting discontinued 🤮🤮🤮

Your assessment is incorrect. Louis Vuitton’s strategy has been, for many years now, to release and discontinue bags more often to maintain a high volume of new products in store throughout the year.

I saw a review where this bag already was cranking on both flaps. Will be interesting to follow!
