The pochette comes from the term "pocket", meaning a small pouch. 18th century women carried their money and small essentials in a pochette attached to their waist and worn under their dress. Today this type of bag has kept its main function : to contain a minimum although its size has changed slightly to become a cross between a clutch bag and a make up bag and thus is now indispensable night and day .Just large enough for your cell phone, credit cards, a couple of hundred dollar bills and a lipstick !
