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 November 2016; 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?

Louis Vuitton x Kakao Novelty Collection

Categories:Louis Vuitton

IMAGE: BAGAHOLICBOY

Just when you thought you had enough of Louis Vuitton’s various collaborations, especially after recent launches with the likes of Fragment, Jeff Koons and Supreme, here’s a really cute one that no fan of the French luxury house should be without.

Not a real collaboration in the sense that there aren’t any RTW, bags or SLGs up for grabs, this collaboration is also only available at LV’s ongoing Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in Seoul. Fittingly, because it is in Korea, LV hooked up with Kakao Talk and released a couple of adorable novelty pieces that you know you want.

From a pack of 8 stickers (KRW36,000) to large A3 posters (KRW27,000each) featuring various Kakao Talk characters that are frolicking amongst LV’s trunks, there are also embroidered patches (KRW89,000) and embossed luggage tags (KRW245,000 each) for sale, much like the one above that features Ryan with his very own piece of LV luggage.

The bad news? You can only purchase these merchandise after you’ve visited the exhibition which is at Dongdaemun Design Plaza. The good news? You have until 27 August 2017 to make a trip into Seoul if you really want these fun collectibles. Or, beg any colleague/friend/relative who is making the trip soon, because once the exhibition’s over, they won’t be available anywhere anymore.

Louis Vuitton builds plush trunks for the 2017 French Open Trophies

Categories:Louis Vuitton


It’s time for the second grand slam of the year and we cannot wait to witness our beloved hotshots, (read Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Angelique Kerber) sweating it out for the legendary Roland-Garros’ trophies. Amidst the high-power struggles and some on and off court drama, one news that has managed to catch our eye is the unveiling of the novel LV trunks that will house the Grand 2017 French Open Trophies.


The French label has specially created two trophy trunks for the Suzanne-Lenglen Cup and the Musketeers’ Cup, each of which is awarded to the French Open Women’s and Men’s champions every year. Manufactured by Maison Mellerio, the oldest and probably the most revered Goldsmith in the world, the two trophies are a result of long hours of work and excellent craftsmanship. It’s no wonder then, that the prestigious cups have found a home as luxurious as the LV trunks.

Meticulously produced at the brand’s historic workshops in Asnières, the LV trunks boast of terracotta-colored interiors as well as the signature brass corners and lock. Adorned in the iconic Monogram canvas, one can also catch the quintessential ‘V’ mark on the front of them for an added dose of charm. It will certainly be exciting to know who bags these luxe LV trunks (and the French open trophies) this year.
