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

Louis Vuitton x Kakao Novelty Collection

Louis Vuitton News

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY

Just when you thought you had enough of Louis Vuitton’s various collaborations, especially after recent launches with the likes of Fragment, Jeff Koons and Supreme, here’s a really cute one that no fan of the French luxury house should be without.

Not a real collaboration in the sense that there aren’t any RTW, bags or SLGs up for grabs, this collaboration is also only available at LV’s ongoing Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in Seoul. Fittingly, because it is in Korea, LV hooked up with Kakao Talk and released a couple of adorable novelty pieces that you know you want.

From a pack of 8 stickers (KRW36,000) to large A3 posters (KRW27,000each) featuring various Kakao Talk characters that are frolicking amongst LV’s trunks, there are also embroidered patches (KRW89,000) and embossed luggage tags (KRW245,000 each) for sale, much like the one above that features Ryan with his very own piece of LV luggage.

The bad news? You can only purchase these merchandise after you’ve visited the exhibition which is at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. The good news? You have until 27 August 2017 to make a trip into Seoul if you really want these fun collectibles. Or, beg any colleague/friend/relative who is making the trip soon, because once the exhibition’s over, they won’t be available anywhere anymore.

Louis Vuitton Introduces New Packaging

Louis Vuitton News

Since 2003, Louis Vuitton has been known for its chocolate-brown packaging, but now the 162-year-old brand is taking on a brighter shade.

Officially called safran impérial (imperial saffron), the ochre hue will be featured on the brand's shopping bags and boxes for all purchases. Cobalt-blue ribbons and bag handles will complement the bright color. 

The new packaging started arriving in stores over the weekend, along with a new rolling suitcase designed by Marc Newson. According to Michael Burke, the chairman and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton, the packaging will eventually roll out to the brand's 450 stores worldwide.

"We don't want the packaging to be fashionable. It's supposed to have quite a long life cycle," Burke told WWD. "In most cases, brand colors play off of black and white. We wanted to be different."

The label has a close relationship with the color scheme. The yellow hue was featured on a vintage Vuitton trunk, the Citroën, which was commissioned by the French carmaker for an expedition in 1924. The color is also similar to the shade of the brand's handles, trim, and labels since 1860. Since Vuitton's inception in 1854, blue details have been used for personalization in the form of initials and ribbons.

Most recently, Nicolas Ghesquière, the brand's artistic director, featured the shade on many of its popular handbags, including the Petite Malle and the Twist MM. Saffron also showed up on the fall and spring 2016 catwalks at various labels, including Gucci, Prabal Gurung, and Prada.

The new packaging is made to last longer than the old packaging—it's thicker and more resilient—and is more collapsible than ever before.

The new packaging will hit LV stores this weekend so don’t be surprised when your purchases are given the saffron treatment. “We don’t want the packaging to be fashionable. It’s supposed to have quite a long life cycle,” Michael Burke, chairman and C.E.O. at LV told WWD. “In most cases, brand colors play off of black and white. We wanted to be different.”

The color, or variations of it, have been seen on LV products before, it’s also been used in their “Volez Voguez Voyagez” exhibition in Paris. Along with boasting a new color, the new packaging will also be more durable thanks to increased thickness and more resilience.
