Who would have ever thought that having paint smudged all over your bag would look stunning. Richard Prince can do it, the one and only. Born out of the collaboration of Marc Jacobs and Richard Prince, Speedy 35 in Monogram Watercolor is a must have for LV lovers and collectors.
Trivia: Did you know that there are 17 paint colors that are used in smudging the Watercolor Speedy? Now you know!
The Aquarelle or Watercolor Speedy is one of the many reinterpretations of the iconic bag which still continues to evolve and through collaborations, becomes more fun and exciting. The Watercolor Speedy is really unique, I love the way how the Monogram patterns are clumsily painted, smudging and dropping paint all over the bag. It’s abstract perfected!
The Watercolor Speedy first came out only in White, but now, the House has just released a Brown version which looks so yummy and perfectly suits as a Fall bag. Yeah! Just be careful with the vachetta coz like the usual Speedy, the Watercolor has lots of vache in it, from the handles to the linings, ooh. But don’t worry, a patinated bag would even look more stunning! The Watercolor Speedy in White and Brown is not available online but you can but it offline at your favorite Louis Vuitton boutique for $1,270.
