Even the Louis Vuitton Stores in Paris Don’t Have the Multi Pochette Accessoires

A single of 2019’s most hard bags to acquire remains in the wind

Ahead of leaving to Paris a handful of weeks ago, I told Kaitlin I would go to as a lot of Louis Vuitton shops as I could, such as the flagship, to inquire about the availability of the Multi Pochette Accessoires.

Here’s a swift refresher: Considering the fact that debuting about 3 months ago, the Multi Pochette Accessoires has positioned itself as a single of this year’s most sought-following products. On the other hand, with the quantity of press, influencer advertising and marketing, and all round recognition, it feels like this small bag has been about for years.

As the Multi Pochette Accessoires gained recognition, the unique style became nearly not possible to acquire freely, unless you are of influencer or celebrity status. It sold out practically everywhere, such as on-line and in nearly all boutiques about the planet. About a month ago, I referred to as Louis Vuitton corporate to confirm. (The only instance exactly where a bag may well be out there is if a single is randomly returned straight to a boutique.)

The bag is out there to acquire by means of a handful of reseller web pages, nonetheless it will price you far beyond the original marketplace value.

Get in touch with this a far-fetched notion, but I had a feeling if I inquired about the bag in Paris, somehow I would be fortunate sufficient to get my hands on a single. Just after all, Louis Vuitton is primarily based there and shops about the city generally have stock that is not but out there in the U.S.

However, I was incorrect. A sort Parisian SA informed me that the bag is extremely sought following about the planet – such as in France – which implies the only way to have a semblance of a likelihood at getting a single is adding your name to a waiting list at your preferred LV shop (in your house nation). That implies I have to add my name to a shop right here in Miami, although there’s no telling when the bag may well or may well not return. (I in fact have my name on lists at very a handful of neighborhood stories in South Florida, so fingers crossed!)

The SA also informed me that the bag may well by no means come back as readily out there for acquire. As an alternative, it may well usually contain some sort of “waiting game,” in which a potential purchaser, like myself, would have to sign up on a waiting list. I’m not certain how truthful this statement was, in particular due to the fact it goes against what some other SAs in the U.S. have told me. I believe all we can say for particular is no a single genuinely knows what the deal is with this bag in terms of price, availability, and an anticipated return date.

Anyway, do not kill the messenger! I know the Multi Pochette Accessoires is a quite divisive subject. Some adore it, whilst other folks uncover it impractical and tacky. If you ask me, I believe it is entertaining and sporty.

Have you place your name on a waiting list but? If you have, let’s bond!
