Pochettes seemed to be out of the fashion radar lately… but now they’re back! Dethroned from the runway shows’ front rows and glamour red carpets by crossbody, mini and belt bags, pochettes regained their cool factor thanks to Chanel and Gucci, that both decided to put these bags under the spotlight again. Do you want to discover the pochettes that will be your MVPs in the upcoming months?

 

Chanel e Gucci: pochettes are the star of their Cruise 2019 collections

Who made the pochette come back? Two of the coolest brands of the moment, Chanel and Gucci. At their Resort 2019 collection shows, staged a few weeks ago in Paris and Arles, we saw again on the catwalk this bag, that we almost forgot in these years. Crossbody and mini bags took its place, actually, maybe because they were way more comfortable. To be honest, pochettes weren’t so easy to wear. A metallic chain, sometimes, can save our lives!

 

But it seems that comfort and practicality are not so important, at least according to Alessandro Michele and Karl Lagerfeld! Prepare to a pochettes’ invasion in your Instagram feed: we’re sure you’re going to see every day your fave fashion icons wearing on their forearms the most fashionable ones! What do you prefer: Gucci Seventies style or Chanel shining embroideries?

 

Pochette endorsers: Kaia Gerber

Sometimes, a trend needs a celebrity endorsement to spread out. There’s no one better than Kaia Gerber, the ultimate it girl, to make a shout out to the pochette’s come back! On the CFDA Awards red carpet she stunned in her Alexander Wang‘s total look. All the eyes were on her hands, that were grabbing a silver shimmering pochette. Not very easy to wear, actually, but the most amazing we saw that night!

How to choose the perfect pochette 

We already said it: pochettes are amazing, but not so easy to carry and not very spacious. That’s why the search of the best pochette ever is like a challenge we must face! When you’re choosing your pochette, think about the one you would carry without problems. Are you going to a fashion show? Find a wrist pochette. Do you need space for more than just smartphone and credit card? Choose a maxi pochette: you’ll be surprised when you’ll see how many things you can put inside!
