An in-depth Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis Review – Catch my drift

I was struggling between the classic monogram LV metis or Empreinte leather but didn’t find any luck on the brand’s website. So the preloved market came to my rescue! I believe purchasing Louis Vuitton handbags and purses is a luxurious fashion investment and therefore it is important to validate the authenticity of the preloved market. The price of Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis in the retail market is $2,570.00. But if you want to save yourself a few dollars the LV Pochette is for sale at DDH costing only $2,495. 

Dallas Designer handbags boast an exponential market for used Louis Vuitton purses and if you are overhauling your designer wardrobe, DDH is the top-notch preluded market to score top dollar cash. So let’s see if it lives up to the hype for me!


The immediate reason I fell for this Louis Vuitton crossbody Pochette was that the beauty of LV Metis swayed me and I succumbed to the allure of this iconic staple. While on average, the satchels are not considered to flaunt the most alluring of styles yet with its on-trend satchel silhouette, the Pochette Metis in black has become an object of desire for many. The petite structure, soft silhouette, and gold-toned hardware scream a visible feminine feel to corroborate my minimalistic aesthetics.

this compact go-every model in the House’s Empreinte leather has a Monogram print throughout featuring the dimensions of 25 x 19 x 7cm. Moreover, it flaunts the distinctive supple-grained cowhide exterior adorned with a front flap decorated with a gleaming gold S-lock closure with a Vachette tab pull. 

The adjustable strap adds versatility

Versatile and classic, this luxurious Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis messenger satchel is fitted with a chic top handle that gives my semblance a touch of elegance and charisma as I carry it like an oversized clutch on casual evenings with my friends. Carry it over the shoulder or across the body, its detachable and adjustable long strap makes it perfect for any height and I love how it fits perfectly over the shoulders. I always carry my Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette as a crossbody, making it a lot easier to shop around and work. 


At first, I was very much paranoid about stuffing the bag. But over time, I found that the compact Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is accented with a roomy micro-fiber interior boasting ample space to perfectly store my go-to essentials. It has three main compartments, comprising two expandable compartments and one spacious slip pocket.

Compartments help with organization

I am one of those particular about perfectly organizing their essentials in the bag to retain its original shape. The best thing about Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is that it notches up the interior with its compartment design. Of course, the bag can’t accommodate everything but the compartments allow me to organize the daily essentials efficaciously.


Once you start using this petite silhouette, it quickly becomes apparent why Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is immensely popular in the fashion streets. Accentuating a perfect blend of size, structure, and oversized design, this LV Metis prompts comfort and utility for every genre. The bag almost features an accordion-style design which makes it utterly functional for minimalistic people.

From decent-sized and well-positioned pockets to the external back pocket, the design doesn’t feature compartments solely for decorative purposes. Instead, the rear pocket is spacious enough to store cardholders, face masks, sanitizers, or a cellphone without looking bulbous. Opening the large flap can be a little finicky for me so the easily accessible slip pocket for storing grab-and-go essentials is heaven-sent. When you expand this bag its standard depth appreciates from 7cm to 13cm, and that too without compromising the visual appeal of the bag while retaining its elegant profile.


Synonymous with the timeless fashion staples, as expensive as it is, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis’s luxurious leather exterior can’t be beaten on quality, craftsmanship, and sturdiness. As Empreinte is more resilient to impacts the leather of my bags hasn’t shown any signs of wear and tear.

Is it worth investing in?

Holding an exponential resale value in the preloved market, all in all, Pochette is a great investment piece. Over the last year, it has become my all-time active go-to bag that compliments every outfit in my wardrobe. If you are looking for a practical bag with a hint of elegance, adding this beauty to your collection is worth every penny.
