Authentic Papillon Pouch
The Papillon is a Louis Vuitton Classic. Designed by Henri Racamier, the husband of Louis Vuitton’s great granddaughter and launched in 1966.
Papillon means Butterfly and was a staple of the Brand until the late 20teens. Completely discontinued in it’s original form the Papillon has been resurrected in a much different form in the last 2 years.
The Papillon pouch was always originally sold with the Papillon handbag, but original owners often found the pouch made a small, but very wearable bag in it’s own right. This led to the pouch often being sold separately once Pre-owned. Sometimes to be used as a “catch all” in any handbag, sometimes as a clutch for those times when all you need is lipstick and keys and sometimes they are gifted to a teenage daughter or granddaughter as a start to their Louis Vuitton Collection.
The single strap ensures a very comfortable hand carry, but can also work on the shoulder of a smaller person. If required an extension strap can be added to turn this lovely and useful piece in to a Crossbody Bag!
