It's always nice to start the morning with good news, so we're here to provide some. A lot of you are already fans of the Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis, which is a relatively new offering from LV that was at first available only in traditional monogram canvas. In fact, just a couple months ago, we listed it was one of the most important bags for Vuitton newcomers to familiarize themselves with.
The monogram Pochette Métis has become so sought-after that it can be at times difficult to track one down for purchase in an LV boutique, but now shoppers have a handful of additional options with the Spring 2017 debut of the bag in monogram empreinte, which is a soft, textured leather embossed with the brand's signature monogram. Because there's no color contrast in monogram empreinte, it's a more subtle logo than LV's printed canvases.
Other than material, the bag is basically the same, and the full leather version will only set you back a couple hundred extra bucks: the four available monogram empreinte colors are all $2,140, while canvas versions range from $1,780 to $1,830. For a big materials upgrade, that's a relatively reasonable price increase, percentage-wise. Check out the available leather bags below.
