May of this year I want to Portugal to visit my family for my grandmother’s birthday and also to celebrate my own birthday in advance. While in Portugal I went to the Louis Vuitton store in Lisbon.
I had been looking to get the Pochette Metis bag in the monogrammed design but couldn’t find it anywhere. The bag was sold out everywhere! While at the store they showed me the same bag but in the Empreinte Noir design. I loved that bag but I couldn’t get both! That’s when I had to make the difficult choice between buying the bag in empreinte noir go continuing to look for the bag in monogram.I decided to get the bag in the Empreinte Noir as I thought it would be more versatile in the long run. Now half a year later I have worn my Pochette Metis to death and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.
The Pochette Metis in Empreinte Noir is the perfect everyday bag. It goes with every outfit due to it’s color and it is super resistant due to the amazing leather. I am 160cm and I can wear the bag over the shoulder, crossbody or just by the top handle. The inside of the bag is super roomy, it has two main compartments, two slit pockets inside of the bag and one on the back of the bag. It fits all the essentials I will ever need!
I did have and issue with the bag after only 4 months of use I noticed the gold color from the hardware was starting to stain the bag gold. I took the bag to the store in Amsterdam and they immediately replaced my original and defective bag with a new one. I have not had the same issue with my new bag so it was probably a defect from the hardware on that specific bag and not on all of them.
