Louis Vuitton Croisette Bag Or Metis Pochette Bag?
The Croisette Bag
Last year in May, Louis Vuitton introduced the Croisette Bag for the first time. It was an instant-hit and we received a lot of positive comments. The Croisette Bag is compact but has flawless functionalities. The design is chic with sophisticated detailing. It comes with a boho-chic tassel, but can be removed if you don’t like it. You can carry this bag for special events or match your casual chic outfit.
The Metis Pochette Bag
But then a competitor arrived in 2012; it’s the Louis Vuitton Metis Pochette Bag. This bag is bigger, but has the same functionalities like the Croisette Bag – both come with handle for hand carry and leather strap for shoulder carry. The Metis Pochette Bag has a rectangle shape and has more pockets and compartments than the Croisette Bag. While the Croisette is better for casual days or the weekends, the Pochette Metis is a better choice as a workbag or for the busy woman who needs to carry a lot of essentials everyday.
The expansion of the Metis Pochette Bag line
If you look at what Louis Vuitton has done lately, the Metis Pochette bag has been extended from basic Monogram Canvas to Monogram Empreinte and other rare prints like the Monogram Reverse Canvas. The Monogram Empreinte is luxurious leather that changes the look to modern elegant.
The journey of the Croisette Bag was less exciting. Until today it’s only available in Damier Ebene Canvas or Damier Azur Canvas. So what does this mean? Is the Metis Pochette Bag more popular?
Which one is better?
I think each of them have their own style and use. The Croisette Bag is smaller in size and has less compartments but it’s nice to wear for the shopping days or at lunch meetings. The tassel is playful and will go well with simple casual outfit like jeans and tee’s
The Metis Pochette Bag is bigger and has lots of useful compartment. It’s ideal for work but can be carried in the weekends as well. It’s a practical bag especially when you need to carry a lot of essentials. The Metis Pochette in Reversed Monogram or Monogram Empreinte creates a different look for different occasions.
In terms of pricing, the Croisette Bag is slightly cheaper, it’s priced at $1590 USD in Canvas. The Pochette Metis Bag in canvas is priced at $1780 USD, but it’s also bigger.
In terms of sizes, the Croissette is measured 9.8′ x 6.7′ x 2.5′ inches (L x H x W) while the Pochette Metis is measured 9.8′ x 2.5′ x 3.5′ inches (L x H x W). So the length is the same, but the Pochette Metis is bigger in height and width because of the extra compartments.
What do you think? If you need to choose, which bag would you go for and why?
