About ten years ago, girls in boarding school stole their mother's Louis Vuitton pochettes, which were kept inside larger handbags to hold makeup, keys, and other travel necessities. The girls transformed the bags into actual purses, often linking a Vuitton keychain into the strap to make it longer and easier to carry. The new accessories were toted to New York on school break, Patricia Field picked up the trend for Carrie Bradshaw, and now the pochette is such a staple purse, it's price has jumped about a hundred dollars. Meanwhile, Dior Parfum has a new product that might take over the pochette's reign as a junior status bag. Their latest makeup case comes stuffed with various perfumes, but looks like an extension of their famous '05 couture collection, made famous when Kate Moss wore its nude colored corset to the CFDA Awards. (And yes, fashion junkies, Dior's Spring '06 collection had the same lingerie feel as its couture mothership, so the bag could be inspired by that, too). Anyway, we've spotted the Dior makeup pouch clutched by a few prep school girls, and we wonder: is this a 10th grade fad, or the beginning of a new tide...
