The One Designer Bag That Sells Out Just Hours After Being Listed

If money were no object, you’d probably cruise over to a department store and buy every single bag that tickled your fancy, right? At least that’s what I would do. But yes, I know, this is real life, and here, when it comes to actually biting the bullet and splurging on a designer bag, thought and consideration are of the utmost importance. Sure, it comes down to whatever silhouette speaks to you most, but there are other factors to consider as well. For example, will the style last for more than a season? Will it hold its value over time? Well, if you’re looking for a classic style that checks both of those boxes (and then some), there’s one specific bag that reigns supreme.

We tapped Charles Gorra, CEO of the luxury handbag authority Rebag (with two stores that just opened in Los Angeles), to give us the insight into his best-selling style. The verdict? The Louis Vuitton Monogram Pochette Metis.

"Its versatility, size, and construction make it one of the brand’s best-selling bags,” he tells us. "However, its limited availability in-store and online, combined with its slower-than-usual and unpredictable restock patterns, make it nearly impossible to attain from a retail standpoint. Which means when it becomes available on Rebag it usually sells within hours of being listed.”

We’re clearly also down with the classic LV silhouette. It’s timeless in nature, and thus totally worth the investment.
