Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis vs. Saint Laurent Sunset

Today, I have a handbag comparison for you. As mentioned in this post, one of the disadvantages of the Saint Laurent Sunset bag is that it holds very little. Since the leather is so structured and rigid, the bag does not have much give. I love the style of the bag but could not fit all of the necessities. I thought about getting the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis as a replacement. Even though I am not too keen on the all over monogram print, the bag is seriously growing on me. As you can tell, both bags are very similar in style. I was #86 on the waiting list at my local Louis Vuitton store. I found a pre-owned one in great condition and decided to pull the trigger. I was looking forward to see the bag but sadly, it did not do it for me.

- The Pochette Metis holds an incredible amount of stuff and is the perfect cross-body bag
- 3 large compartments make organization a breeze
- The shoulder strap is adjustable which is a bonus for a short gal like me
- Since the strap is made out of canvas, it's very stiff and does not lay flat
- Too much monogram (I wish the strap is made out of leather)
- Overall, the monogram canvas version just looks cheap in my opinion
I know this bag is highly sought-after and extremely hard to get but it did not live up to the hype for me. I sent it back and got the Saint Laurent college bag instead. I did however, returned the Saint Laurent one as well but that's another story for another day =)

Thanks for reviewing it! Have you tried Pochette Metis Empreinte leather?

One of my girlfriends has the Empreinte version. While I think it looks and feels way better than the canvas one, I am not looking to get a solid colored bag
