Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis is the most popular bag from Louis Vuitton in this decade. There are waitlists for the mono/reverse version all over the world. However, there's one more Louis Vuitton bag which is almost the exact copy of the Metis, Mylockme.
Louis Vuitton Mylockme comes in 6 colors - Caramel, Rose, Bleu Jean (this is our baby), Vieux Rose, Nor, and Vanille Noir. There are also some limited editions released.
Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis comes in traditional monogram print and reverse monogram print. It was also released in Empreinte leather (Creme, Freesia, Papyrus, Marine Rouge, Cerise, Noir, Rose Poudre, Rose Ballerine, Scarlet). There are several limited editions of Pochette Metis. At the end of 2018, we got a new interpretation of Pochette Metis, the one with the braided handle.
What's the price of Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis / Louis Vuitton Mylockme?
Pochette Metis retails for 2300$ plus tax while Mylockme is 2970$ plus tax.
Empreinte leather is thick. Pochette Metis in Empreinte leather keeps the shape good.
Mylockme is made from calfskin, which is a little thinner than Empreinte. These two bags are new so it's hard to say what they would look like after you use them for a while but my personal opinion is that Mylockme leather will be showing more wear.
Very similar. Pochette Metis is a little heavier - just a little.
Mylockme is a little larger and the compartments inside have more space.
Seems like overall Pochette Metis has more pros. It's cheaper, has more color options. It holds the value. However, Mylockme will be an excellent option for those who want a unique bag that is larger than Pochette Metis.
