Just launched on 1 January, 2014, this pochette by Louis Vuitton is the perfect way to start the new year! Retailing at $1,000USD, this stunning pochette is an extension of the W bag, which has been a recent hit among Vuitton collectors and handbag enthusiasts.
The W tote retails for over $4,000 and has two options in most styles--the PM or the GM. For the price point and the practicality, I highly recommend this piece for your accessories collection.
With similar design to its bigger brother, the W tote, this style has Chocolate Veau Cachemire calfskin and monogram canvas.
The interior is practical and spacious for a pochette. Its calf leather lining includes six card slots and a pouch inside, perfect for receipts and cash. The pochette easily turns into a wallet, and is large enough to fit an iPad mini inside the main compartment. It can easily fit an iPhone inside. I would only recommend fitting one device inside as to not stretch the pochette.
As you can see from the side, even when filled with an iPad Mini, credit cards, tissues, cash, and receipts, it is comfortable and not overly stuffed. It is quite the chic and practical accessory, with a loop to carry it on the hand. The W Pochette measures at 10.6" x 7.1". It is perfect for running errands and also for a night out with friends!
Getting this W Pochette was a great start to the new year! I've already used it a bunch of times for both errands and a night out in Manhattan with a best girlfriend of mine. I must add that it particularly came in hand whenever I had to carry two Starbucks lattes out of the store along with a hot pretzel--the pochette just dangled freely from my wrist, making the task so simple. I'm not a clutch kind of gal, but this pochette converted me! I'm usually one to go for big bags and totes, but I've been trying to downsize. And the W Pochette is my favorite new small accessory!
