Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis : Luxury Reveal

Louis Vuitton Pochette Métis monogram print unboxing
My Louis Vuitton appreciation has skyrocketed, and it's quickly become my favourite lux brand next to Gucci, as you probably can tell from my ever-increasing monogram collection.

In December 2018 the Pochette Métis really came to my attention and headed no1 spot on my Thingspiration Wishlist. I went on a crazy pinning spree saving every image on Pinterest and watching every 'Pochette Métis Monogram review' & 'What's inside in my Métis' available on YouTube knowing this would be my dream bag! 

In the past year, my bag lusts have steered more toward crossbody style, which all began with the Gucci Marmont camera bag. I have found it so comfortable to wear and perfectly sized for my daily needs. Still, the beautiful Pochette Métis is a hugely coveted bag, and with a waiting list as long as your arm I was resolved that it would be no easy feat to acquire and to merely keep dreaming!

What makes it so irresistible is the versatility of this bag, based on the vintage on the 1986 classic Monceau 26 it has that perfect vintage style;

I never imagined that I would find, let alone own this beautiful unicorn but the unbelievable has actually happened, and my fantastic #thebesthubby did it again! Not only did he make the impossible possible, but he also did it with style ... SWOON.

Within three days of speaking to our lovely SA and telling her how much he wanted to get me this bag as a VDAY surprise (I've seen the whattsapp messages), he managed to beat every waiting list, and my new bag was delivered instore ready for collection. 

It actually arrived a week before Valentine's day, but as this was a complete surprise for me, he cheekily hid it in plain sight in one of my real shopping bags on top of my display unit ready for the SPECIAL Valentine's day surprise. ♥️

You can imagine my confusion when on Valentine's day he pulled out the gift box from the LV bag that was there the whole time right in front of my eyes and when I opened the box I couldn't believe my eyes ... What a FANTASTIC man and what a surprise it was!! 

The Bag

This bag is fantastic, not only is the size perfection, I adore how I can transition this bag between work / casual weekends to a night out, and the soft, supple leather is mesmerising. Inside the three perfectly sized compartments with luxurious chocolate brown microfibre, fits enough of my daily essentials for this to be my perfect bag? 

I know this is a bold statement, but aside from the Dauphine bag (which I can tell you is up there in the perfection rankings) this bag is flipping amazing, and if your lucky to find this bag in stock I recommend you grab it with both hands immediately.

I did initially consider letting the top handle patina naturally, as I'll never be selling. Still, for now, I opted for an obligatory top handle bandeau to make it more personalised. 

When I went to show off my beauty in person to my lovely SA, I ended up picking up the gorgeous 'Jeu de Louis BB Bandeau scarf', and she kindly and tied it for me. The bandeau was the finishing touch to this divine and just perfect bag, thanks to the best man I have ever known.
