There are bags that try as you might, never really become anything more than last season’s forgotten wares. Then there are those that become instant hits the moment they hit the shelves without even a huge publicity campaign behind it. Ones that are fuelled only by the bag’s good looks, functionality and of course, its relative affordability, that’s as rare as a unicorn as far as luxury bags go in the marketplace these days.

Which brings us to Louis Vuitton’s Pochette Métis, the triple threat entrant to the French luxury house’s family of bags that’s still a hit today even though it has been around since 2013. Measuring just 25 cm by 19 cm, it looks familiar because it was inspired by the Monceau, its stiffer, more severe predecessor. In the Pochette Métis you’ll see the similarities between the two, the briefcase-like style with its front flap, that unmistakable clasp, the top handle but with a more rounded body, and better function. In the Monceau you had a smaller compartment attached to the front of the bag; in the Pochette Metis you have two similarly-sized gusseted compartments with a zip patch pocket at the bag.

First made available only in Monogram Canvas (which is still highly sought after), the Pochette Métis has since been released in Monogram Empreinteleather (Pink as well as a Dark Blue with red piping), Monogram Infrarouge(that’s red monograms on black coated canvas) and most recently Monogram Reverse, which is the darling of the moment.
Priced from SGD2510 for the one in Monogram Reverse (I’m assuming it is more or less the same for the ones in coated canvas), you could wear it across the body or over the shoulder, remove the sling completely and use a twirled-up scarf as a sling, even wrap the handle with a silk bandeau to give it a completely new look. One bag, many different looks. Which in my books makes it even more desirable than the next.Handbags
Louis Vuitton always work its magic whenever it releases its newest bags so no wonder it received a lot of praise from the public when the Louis Vuitton Monogram infrarouge Pochette Metis Bag hit its stores.
Since this beauty is an instant crowd favorite, it’s time to take a closer look and pay attention to the tiniest details. With its compact size and organized compartments, no wonder it is loved by many.
With its infrarouge coated canvas in black and red, this one is striking to the eyes paired with golden colour metallic pieces. It also has a natural cowhide leather trimmings for an added touch of elegance. This bag is also about functionality! The elegant handle and the adjustable and removable cross-body strap make it an ideal handbag, shoulder bag, and a cross body bag.
For those who are into compartments, this one won’t fail you since it has 1 exterior zipped pocket and 3 interior compartment.Accessories

And we can’t agree more, the interior comes with two removable pockets – one zipped pocket and a flat pocket with 8 credit card slots.
It’s much more than a wallet, it can be transformed into a clutch bag or a small pouch whenever you want, just remove the golden chain.
Obvious the Louis Vuitton Pochette Felicie Bag comes in several different styles – the Monogram Vernis Leather, Monogram Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. It’s available in purple, red and pink.
But Fev LSM chooses Monogram Canvas and we can understand why, because it’s stylish, elegant and the Monogram Canvas is Louis Vuitton’s most iconic print.

The bag has a long gold metallic chain which can be worn over your shoulders or as a crossbody for that extra kick (and “wow” factor). You can even use this as an inside bag and storage for your knick-knacks (although if we could suggest, this is too good to be kept under wraps).
