Did you know one of Louis Vuitton’s most popular styles was never actually meant for the spotlight?
Originally tucked inside the Noé or the Bucket, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessories started out as just an appendix for keeping makeup, keys, money, and other small trinkets. It wasn’t until 1992 that the Pochette was first sold on its own and marketed as a bag that could be carried casually during the day or dressed up at night.
The Pochette became a highly coveted piece almost instantly, and to this day it is still one of the brand’s most popular styles. In fact, we recently sold three Pochettes in just a matter of hours after posting a photo of one. A lot of our followers then reached out to let us know the Pochette was their first designer bag and the photo helped bring back some sweet memories.
Over the years, artists like Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, and Yayoi Kusama have added their flare to the Pochette bag during their collaborations with Louis Vuitton, and fashion insiders have taken a special liking to them. Kendall Jenner, pictured below, is carrying a Stephen Sprouse X LV Pochette that she purchased from WGACA.
The Pochette is also an incredible investment piece. While they can be tricky to find, they are actually pretty reasonably priced and will only appreciate in value over time. This timeless and recognizable design has just enough room to carry your essentials, making it the perfect grab and go handbag for a woman on the move.
