It’s hard to believe that the Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis has been around for a full decade, but this year, in fact, marks its 10th anniversary. While the bag has lived as part of the Louis Vuitton lineup for an entire decade, it’s also worth noting that it remained largely under the radar for the first few years of its life. Our very own Amanda Mull reported how it remained inconspicuous until around 2015 when suddenly, the bag’s popularity grew exponentially.
The classic Pochette Métis in Monogram canvas became so sought-after that it became extremely difficult to track down at times, spawning wait lists at many boutiques around the globe. Even Megs had a difficult time snagging her beloved bag. While it’s currently readily available online in both Monogram and reverse Monogram canvas, Louis Vuitton has just updated this fan-favorite bag, and it definitely will delight Pochette Metis fans, both new and old.
A Fan-Favorite, Updated
This month, Louis Vuitton releases a brand new Pochette Métis in an elongated East/West shape and a strap that perfectly transforms a beloved silhouette into an of-the-moment shoulder bag. Currently available in classic Monogram canvas with natural cowhide leather trim, the Pochette Métis East West bag features its big sister’s signature S-lock detailing with subtle updates allowing the bag to feel modern and fresh. There’s the addition of a chunky gold chain which is very of the moment, as well as the aforementioned strap that allows for fashionable shoulder wear. Shoulder bags are here to stay, and this update is right on time.
As for the sizing, it’s large enough to store an iPhone 13 and has 3 interior compartments, a zipped pocket inside, and another outside. Overall dimensions are 8.5 x 5.3 x 2.4 inches. Retail is $2,910 via Louis Vuitton, and yes, the bag is available now, but like most new releases, that might change soon. Be sure to join the chatter going down now on TPF about this brand-new drop and let us know if you’ll be snagging one before it’s too late.
