Multi Pochette Bags: Trends or Statement Pieces?

Three in one? At least that the promise of the Multi Pochette bag. So yes, technically, you are getting three bags in one!
Then you might think why would I buy one, when I can get multiple for the same price? Well thats one way to look at things regarding the Multi pochette Louis Vuitton or the Multi Pochette Prada (also called Hobo). However the Multi Pochette style is not for everyone.

Celebrities, such as Gigi Hadid, Chiara Ferragni and Hailey Bieber. Even many well known influencers like Caroline Daur, Sarah Ellen and Veronica Ferraro have been spotted with these two “it-bags”.

Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette

Let’s take a second to focus on the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette. Louis Vuitton described it as a “totally versatile everyday bag”. And that’s actually true. This bag is a hybrid of sorts, featuring a large Pochette Bag, a Mini Pochette Accessory and a round coin-purse for $1,550! Another cool thing about this bag: you can wear it in many different ways! From your casual everyday streetwear such as jeans and a t-shirt, through to a night out with just a simple dress and the gold chain purse on its own!

If you are looking for even MORE personnalisation, you can go for the “Multi Pochette Accessories My LV World Tour“. You have multiple options such as adding stickers on the Louis Vuitton Monogram.

Why the Multi Pochette bags are trending right now?

Another popular example of this trend is the Prada Multi Pochette Bag Re-Edition 2005. The Prada Re-Edition bag, which is a revamp of the 2005 Bandoliera Tessuto, is also known as the “Prada Hobo”. It features the brand’s signature nylon finish with a small but recognisable logo, a chain handle, and an accompanying shoulder strap, which also includes the word “PRADA” along the side.

The LV Multi Pochette is a modern version of the iconic Pochette accessories from 1992! It’s definitely coming back in fashion because of the street style looks being promoted these days. Such examples can be seen on the gorgeous Isaya Elais below:

Are the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette or the Prada Hobo good investments?

I wouldn’t think so. Only because it’s a trend since summer 2019 coming back from the 2000s vintage look. It is certainly a hot trend for now, but how long will it last? That’s always the re-occurring question when it comes to “it bags”.

Therefore, if you are looking for a bag to invest in, I would’t recommend this to be your first choice. If you’re looking for a standout piece to invest in at a reasonable price? Check out my article about the Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis.

The French Opinion:

Take a minute to think before you add these bags to your wish list. Do you truly like the design? Does it mix well with your style? OR is it because you’ve been seeing it for months all over Instagram, on the shoulders of many prevalent Influencers? Marketing, that’s their trick! If the answers to the first two of these questions are a YES, then go for it!

“Life is too short to wear boring bags.”

–Who knows who was the author, but she was damn right!

From my view point, the Multi Pochette bags doesn’t quite do the trick. It’s cool but it is not a “versatile” bag to have in your closet, and you are limited as to what you can and cant wear with it. I think it’s a matter of months before this trend will pass, and the bag will go out of style just as quickly as it had come.

Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette & Prada Hobo Selection:

This is not the kind of bag I would personally go for, but never say never! So, for the true fans of the Multi Pochette look I’ve prepared for you a selection of Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette and Prada Hobo bags. From second hand to brand new, this selection will give you the ability to make a price comparison between vintage and retail prices. This will help you to determine if it is a more viable option to go vintage, with that being said you would still be better off buying it brand new if you get the chance!
