A popular Louis Vuitton 3 piece bag that you might’ve seen on the celebrities’ shoulder is called Multi-Pochette.
Introduced on September 27, 2019, just as the trend for small purses was arising, it quickly became the next big thing.
It’s interesting that the actual Multi-pochette set is comprised of the three existing (and a bit reinvented) Louis Vuitton items: a Pochette, a Mini Pochette and a zipped coin purse attached to a thick fabric strap. Additionally, this set also contains a small chain strap.

Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette Price History
Here’s how price of this French brand’s 3 piece bag was changing since the purse was first introduced. The prices are in the US dollars.
When the purse was first released in 2019, Multi Pochette was listed on the official website for $1,550. Nevertheless, it seems that one week later the sales analysts have received a confirmation of high demand and the price was raised by $90.
Louis Vuitton stroke its fans with major price increases in 2021 and 2022, due to COVID pandemic.
As a result, in four years, the price of Multi Pochette Accessoires 3 piece bag has gone up by impressive 40%. That’s just off the charts!
Is Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette Cheaper in Europe?
As COVID19 restrictions are gradually lifted, we are gradually considering purchasing a nice handbag during a vacation in Europe again. Let’s see if it makes sense.
US retail price of the Louis Vuitton Multi Pochette 3 piece bag is $2,570. In addition, you are paying sales tax so the final price will likely be at least plus 5,09% to retail (average sales tax in the US).
$2,570 + 5 % ($130,8) = $2,700
In Europe the same Multi-Pochette Accessoires purse is 1,900 €. The price is the same in all European Union. As a tourist, you are entitled to shopping tax free and you can receive a VAT refund. While VAT refunds differ from one country to another, you can definitely expect to return at least 10% of the retail price (it’ll likely be a little higher, like 12-13% but I like to manage expectations in the right way).
1,900€ – 190€ = 1710 €
The price difference is already impressive but let’s go even further and convert this amount to USD.
1710 * 1.07 = $1,829
With an exchange rate of 1.07, it seems that by purchasing in Europe you can save about $900 on a new Multi Pochette. That being said, you also need to be very lucky as this purse is extremely hard to come by.
