Why give up a good thing? It seems Louis Vuitton thought just this when launching their latest handbag – the New Wave Multi-Pochette.
That’s right, Louis Vuitton have released another Multi-Pochette style bag. Following on from the success of the house’s existing multi bags, this new piece turns LV’s popular New Wave Chain bag into a compacted, multi-functional and hands-free accessory.
The brand enjoyed instant success with their Multi-Pochette Accessoires with the unique bag becoming a cult classic popular amongst celebrities and influencers alike. Next Vuitton launched the Twist and Twisty – a clever twist to the popular multi bagging trend (pun most definitely intended)! This design consists of a mini version of LV’s popular Twist bag layered on top of a larger style of the bag.
It seems Vuitton didn’t want to end the success of this trend there! Enter the New Wave Multi-Pochette.
The bag is comprised of a smaller version of the New Wave bag which comes in quilted calf leather and features a flap with the house’s signature interlocking LV logo at the centre. This pochette comes with a chain strap and a round coin purse, also in quilted calf leather, clipped onto a longer material strap. This cross-body strap is embossed with the words ‘Louis Vuitton’ written in slanted font, typical of Vuitton’s New Wave collection.
Priced at $2,300, this new design will set you back several hundred dollars more than the house’s original multi bag, the Multi-Pochette Accessoires which costs $1,860.
It is also worth noting that this new multi bag option from LV has two compartments compared to the Multi-Pochette Accessoires’ three.
The new design’s main pochette is also considerably smaller than that of the aforementioned Multi-Pochette Accessoires.
Currently the New Wave Multi-Pochette is offered in three colors – Black, Snow and Kaki. The new design is available to purchase on the Louis Vuitton website and, much like the Multi-Pochette Accessoires, can also be found on some resale sites due to high demand.
Louis Vuitton’s decision to launch a multi bag version of their popular New Wave Chain Bag seems to have further consolidated the multi bag style as more than just a passing fad and instead what could potentially be an iconic style for years to come.
