LOUIS VUITTON MINI POCHETTE METIS BAG

Louis Vuitton News

Louis-Vuitton-Mini-Pochette-Metis-Bag

Last time when we wrote about the battle between the Louis Vuitton Croisette Bag and the Metis Pochette Bag, we knew that the second bag was winning. Not only did our bag community double confirm their choice for the Metis Pochette Bag, but the French Fashion House was showing their support as well by expanding the line with classic prints like Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte. And now finally, the day has come to introduce the Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Metis Bag for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection.

So the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis Bag has been downsized to an ultra-stylish mini size. But haven’t we expected this outcome? Since its first release in November 2016, it has been nothing than uphill for this bag and it kept climbing. It has now reached a stage where it could be joining the classic collection, so let us hope that this style will stay for a very long time.

The design

The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis Bag is designed in a square shape with an envelope-shaped flap. It also features the secure S-lock in shiny hardware on the front. This bag is famous for its beautiful look, but also for the practical interior.

The mini version is even chic’er than the bigger size because of the combination of double gold key chain with shiny Epi leather. The medium size Pochette Metis Bag comes with a leather shoulder strap, but the chain strap on the mini looks far more luxurious. And if you don’t feel like slinging it on your shoulder, you can always carry it by hand with the short leather handles.

For those that don’t like Epi leather, there are more options of course. You can choose the iconic Monogram or even the Monogram Reversed print.

The interior

The reason why the Pochette Metis Bag has become so famous is not only because of the iconic look, but in combination with the spacious and structured interior. It’s an ideal bag to carry as an everyday bag, so the investment is certainly worth it. Inside the Mini Pochette Metis Bag, you will find 3 inside compartment to carry all your personal items.

Is the mini something for you? Let us know in the comment section.

The Louis Vuitton Mini Pochette Metis Bag is measured 7.9’ x 5.5’ x 2.4’ inches, priced at $2490 USD, €1780 euro, £1660 GBP, $3050 CAD, $20600 HKD

The Croisette Bag

Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.

The Metis Pochette Bag

But then a competitor arrived in November 2016; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.

The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line

If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.

The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?

Which one is better?

I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s

The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.

In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.

In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.

What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?
