Louis Vuitton's Legendary Heritage
It was 1854 on Rue Neuve des Capucine in Paris, and luggage maker Louis Vuitton opened the doors of his first shop. Nearly two centuries later, Louis Vuitton is solidified in fashion history as one of the world’s most influential and timeless luxury brands. Sported by the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Rihanna, LV’s iconic handbags have naturally withstood the test of time. Hence, these bags represent so much more than a status symbol. With a Louis Vuitton bag slung over your shoulder, you become part of the brand’s legendary heritage. From the Speedy to the Neverfull, the abundance of bag styles can appear overwhelming. But, if you are seeking the ultimate Y2K chic, entry-level Louis Vuitton bag, look no further than the Pochette Accessoires.
An Innovative Silhouette's Rise To Fame
The 1980s were an era of opulence and glamour, with innovative silhouettes taking center stage. It was during this radical decade that Louis Vuitton introduced a new line of accessories – utilizing the removable strap design – to accompany larger handbags. Yet, the Pochette Accessoires was so beloved by consumers that it quickly became a stand-alone silhouette. Despite the convenience of the strap, the Pochette rose to fame as a chic, mini shoulder bag during the height of the ‘90s and early 2000s.
A Canvas For Collaboration And Experimentation
As tends to be the case with Louis Vuitton’s most popular bag styles, size and material offerings grow and diversify. Initially designed in the iconic Monogram canvas, the Pochette quickly expanded to the likes of Damier Ebene, Damier Azur, Empreinte leather and more. But, most coveted on the resale market are the Pochette's collaborative designs, as reimagined by legendary artists Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, and Urs Fischer.
While the Pochette Accessoires is primed to fit your Zippy Wallet and other daily essentials, the Mini and Micro Pochette Accessoires are the even smaller extensions of this coveted silhouette. Thanks to its detachable gold chain, the Mini Pochette seamlessly transitions from tiny clutch to bag attachment. Likewise, with its sleek chain and hook, the Micro Pochette is the perfect zip-up pouch for your cards and keys. In all its variations, the Louis Vuitton Pochette Accessoires is a highly sought-after piece, and Sotheby’s ‘Buy Now’ selection of this style is bar none.
