Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis Handbag Review

by - April 07, 2021

Hi guys! Today I would like to review my latest handbag purchase: The Pochette Metis bag, which is in fact, in my opinion, one of the best investment bags for 2020 that will keep its value for a long time and one of the most stylish and beautiful designer handbags. 

Just a quick disclosure: the point of this post isn’t to brag about how many bags I have. For me, I believe that purchasing luxury fashion is an investment. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I really enjoy seeing other people’s handbag collections and reading their reviews, so I wanted to share my collection in case anyone is contemplating buying any of these. I know this is crazy! I never thought in a million dreams that I’d be writing a blog post about a luxury item that I own. I feel like I have started this year right, by focussing on me and trying to achieve my goals in life!

Anyway, if handbags aren’t your thing, or if you think I’m just wasting all this money on bags, please feel free to close your browser and go away from my blog. I am just very grateful for finding this bag and very proud of myself for treating myself to something that I have wanted for a very long time. I work full time (very long hours at a very stressful job), and don’t have a “sugar daddy” who sponsors my bags. I am frugal in many other areas of life that I don’t necessarily always talk about, for example I don’t own a car and take public transit as my primary mode of transportation. Just some thoughts before you read on, ok!

With all that in mind, let’s get back to what we’re all here for, my first impression and honest review of the Louis Vuitton POCHETTE METIS. Through stalking the Louis Vuitton website I finally saw a chance to buy the Louis Vuitton POCHETTE METIS. I’ve wanted this bag for a while and I am so glad that I finally added it to my collection. I honestly didn’t realize how much I really loved it until it was mine and I started wearing it. It really is a classic beauty.

I asked the shop assistant in the LV store in Gangnam: “It might be a stupid question, but do you have the classic Pochette Metis in black color.” I am not a Louis Vuitton Monogram lover. Some people go crazy over the iconic pattern. Me? I'm neutral. What I do love is the craftsmanship and quality that come with Louis Vuitton or other brand's products. The Pochette Metis is the first Louis Vuitton handbag I've ever purchased. I thought this crossbody would be a great asset to my handbag collection that could tell a story. I was the happiest kid on earth stepping out Louis Vuitton store with my new baby!

The bag comes in a huge Louis Vuitton box and dustbag. 

To precede the authentication part below, here's proof of authenticity: official receipt of the bag.

As I stalked the Louis Vuitton website, I noticed two things; the bag was always out of stock and the price grew a few hundred Won every few months. When I bought the Pochette Metis, I told myself that it would be the last bag I’d buy, but then a month later I picked up the Rosa.K TRAPEZE MONOGRAM MINI TOTE SECRET in black cow leather.

The Pochette Metis handbag features a classic satchel silhouette in a compact, stylish version. This item is made of soft Monogram Empreinte leather that is attractive enough to be held, and features an S-lock closure inspired by the historic house trunk. Check out the versatile design with a stylish top handle, a detachable strap that can be worn as a shoulder or crossbody bag, and a small but generous storage space.

I’ve been using my Pochette Metis handbag non-stop for a few days now, also to evaluate its potential in terms of outfit combinations and its practicality in everyday life. I love this bag and ultimately I am so happy with it and has a bit of an edgy look which I love. I can’t purchase things that are just for evening wear or travel. It’s important that they are suitable for lots of things. I’m not always careful with my bags and I’m always in a rush, and sometimes my bags suffer from that. So, I try to be as careful as I can, but I know if I’m in a rush it won’t get scratches that easily.

The bag is exactly as I expected and even better in terms of visual impact once worn. After about 6 or more uses, the leather will begin to soften and expand for a little to accommodate more stuff. The strap is adjustable which makes it perfect for any height or body type, and this size is totally perfect for me. With my busy lifestyle, I definitely wear this bag crossbody the most, and it’s super easy to go with literally every outfit I own, and can be worn both casually or more dressed up. It’s extremely versatile. I wear this both with and without the strap, depending on the look I am going for and love it either way. I haven’t worn it a ton, but it surprisingly fits more than it looks and it’s so unique, and chic.

At the back, there a small zip compartment – perhaps good for popping a mobile phone.

So let’s wrap things up, shall we? It’s a joy to wear and no matter what color you get, this bag is such a great bag to have. Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis, this is a go-to bag for me. It’s perfect for year-round, grab-and-go, or just a daily handbag. It’s also very comfortable and lightweight to carry and it fits all my daily essentials and this bag has never felt heavy to me at all even with its packed full of contents.

Dress: Jillstuart
Shoes: Michael Kors
