    If You Like the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis, You'll Love...

    Two Pochette Metis handbags are better than one! Love the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis in Monogram? Yoogi's Closet does. Shop authenticated pre-owned luxury at yoogiscloset.com

    The Pochette Metis is one of our favorite newer style Louis Vuitton bags because it's one of the most functional pieces they've designed. The Pochette Metis, a small "school satchel"-style bag, has a top handle and an adjustable shoulder strap,  a rear zip pocket, a secure flap closure, and a spacious fabric interior with different compartments. But the Pochette Metis is notoriously hard to get your hands on: it's usually sold out in stores and it's very hard to find on the resale market.

    Luckily, there are quite a few alternatives with the same style on the designer handbag market. If you'll looking for bags like the Pochette Metis, scroll on.

     

    The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

    Before we dive in, let's talk about why the Pochette Metis is so popular: its features and functionality. The Pochette Metis has a soft rectangular shape and an envelope flap closure style, complete with Louis Vuitton's signature S-Lock closure. The S-Lock closure opens with a pinch of two golden knobs to reveal three spacious compartments.

    Measurements: 9.75" L x 2.75" W x 7.5" H
    Exterior Pockets: One rear zip pocket
    Interior Pockets: Three interior compartments

    The original design from the Pochette Metis is inspired by the Monceau. The mini briefcase design with two interior compartments, original S-Lock (the same lock from LV trunks), a short top handle and a long crossbody strap.

    Louis Vuitton Black Epi Monceau 28 Bag

    Like its Monogram Canvas cousin, the Monceau 28 has the same small briefcase design with two interior compartments, an S-lock closure and can be hand-held or carried on the shoulder. The Epi leather version of the Monceau was available from the late 1990s to the mid-2000s and can only be found on the resale market. If you find one in good condition, this bag will last you a lifetime in Epi leather.
