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.
