Ever so often I get emails from readers asking for reviews on specific bags, and for today’s post on the Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Pochette Métis, you have Lisa to thank.
Launched early this year in January, the Monogram Canvas Pochette Métis measures 24 cm by 19 cm and is as straightforward a bag as you’ll get. Made of supple Monogram Canvas and priced at SGD1870, a simple front flap opens up to reveal 3 interior compartments and a flat pocket all lined in microfibre, and all roomy and functional. At the back you’ll find a flat zip pocket which is always handy.
Topped off with a short handle in leather, it also comes with an adjustable/removable shoulder sling that’s strangely also made of Monogram Canvas, which also happens to be the only feature I’m bugged about. It would have been more interesting to just use leather for the sling, which besides adding contrast, would be more durable as well.
In other words, I’ll pass and recommend that Lisa (if you’re reading this) get something else instead, like the Monogram Canvas Eden, or a hobo like the Monogram Canvas Sully.
