Essential Guide to the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

There’s a reason why the Pochette Metis has become one of Louis Vuitton’s best-selling (and often sold out) bags. Originally launched in classic monogram coated canvas, the bag has since taken on a life of its own, with limited releases each season in a variety of materials and colors. A versatile bag, this style can be carried by hand with the built-in top handle, over the shoulder, or cross body with an adjustable, removable strap. The interior features two compartments and pockets to keep your essentials organized. The exterior features a handy rear zipped pocket for easy access to your keys or phone. The push lock closure is not only beautiful as a decorative feature, but also secure and easy to use. All-in-all, a great daily bag for running errands, or for worry-free travel, but also sleek enough to carry to work. Sized at 9.75” w x 6.75” h x 3” d, it’s small enough to be carefree but large enough to easily fit a full-sized wallet, sunglasses, phone, keys, and small makeup essentials. And a mini version, highlighted below, provides an even smaller silhouette perfect for evenings or times when you simply want to travel light.
