I can’t remember the last time I felt the urge to drop everything and run to the store to buy something, but that’s the exact feeling that I got when I discovered the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette. First spotted on Valentina Ferragni a mere ten days ago, we weren’t even sure of the exact name of this bag (bags?) at first. In the days prior you guys helped to identify it, and I soon spotted this interesting combination of Pochette accessories worn by both musical superstars (think Rihanna and Dua Lipa) and influencers alike. Though by now it seems consumers are over the in-you-face tactic of influencer marketing, this time around I was bitten by the bug and I’m not afraid to explain why.
It’s no secret that Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas has a rich history—it’s been around for over 150 years and has been reimagined a ton of different ways. Featured first on trunks, then handbags and accessories, Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas is timeless. Take for example the Monogram Speedy bag that I’ve had for over 10 years, and despite it sitting in my closet untouched for much of that time, whenever I’ve taken it out, it’s been relevant. I haven’t lusted after a Monogram canvas bag in a very long time, but something about the juxtaposition of classic monogram canvas and the multi-bag shape coupled with the utility crossbody strap caught my eye. I couldn’t stop thinking that the bag was just so cool, and despite seeing it on the bodies of one too many Instagram stars I still can’t get it out of my mind.
A further look at the Multi Pochette proves that it’s also quite a value. For $1,550 you’re essentially getting 2 bags in one. This bag is a hybrid of sorts, featuring a large Pochette Bag, a Mini Pochette Accessory and a round coin-purse. It also comes with a gold cross body chain as well as an adjustable Louis Vuitton etched Jacquard strap (in rose or kaki). The cool thing is that this bag can be worn a few different ways. I imagine this worn with jeans, a white tee and cool Nikes during the day, but the smaller pouch alone with the gold chain is perfect for an evening look. The bag is currently available in the US in ‘limited quantities’ for pre-launch via Louis Vuitton. Excuse me while I go “call for availability“.
