The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was first introduced around 80 years ago; it was designed while Georges Vuitton (the son of the founder) was still in charge of the company. But since then, nothing significant has been changed about the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag.
In all these years perhaps the biggest adjustments were mixing colors like the Speedy Totem Bag, changing the cover like the Monogram Empreinte or shrinking to size 20 or even smaller like the size Nano.
But overall, the design remains the same.
Today Nicolas Ghesquiere took the house’s most iconic bag to another level by introducing the Louis Vuitton Speedy Amazon Bag. The changes are immediately recognized but it’s truly cleverly injected. The new Monogram Canvas print (mixed with blue and black) is gently embossed on the handles, the side-strap, the luggage tag and a bit on the front. It’s like decorating the Speedy Bag with care so that the Monogram Canvas doesn’t shadow the true beauty of this bag. It’s not too much and not too little, the perfect balance.
Crafted from Smooth Calfskin, the bag comes with an adjustable shoulder strap. The nametag features with metallic LV signature and there is even a LV Circle hot stamped signature on the back body. The 2 D-rings on the front allow for optional accessories or bag charms.
More, the interior is made with 2 flat pockets and here are the rest of the details:
