Fall/Winter 2008-09 kicked off with a bang after the release of the Monogram Shimmer bags, then 2 weeks later, the Monogram Suede Embossed bags were released and now, before the month ends, the third batch of Fall bags are now out out out! The Louis Vuitton Paris Speedy comes in two sizes; Mini and Cube.
So first off, let’s have a look at the Speedy Cube. We all know that the Speedy is one of the icons of Louis Vuitton. It has been reinvented so many times-this collage might give you an idea-and on it’s nth reincarnation, the Speedy goes urban! The Speedy Cube is made from smooth black leather embossed with ‘LOUIS VUITTON PARIS’ that covers the whole bag and has features reminiscent of the trunks of yesteryear. With it’s clean cut and structured shape, the worlds of luxury and urban chic seems to have combined.
As for the bag’s specs, it has these white golden brass pieces that outlines the bag in metallic detail. Like the other Speedies, it has a wide zipper closure that can be locked using a Louis Vuitton engraved padlock. The keys are hidden in the metal trimmed key bell that is removable so if you think it’s hassly, just give it a snap and its gone gone gone. The Speedy Cube can be hand-held or carried on the shoulder or across the body thanks to the removable and adjustable leather strap with vintage lock. And the thing that’s really cool with this bag is that it has protective metal bars on the base for protection.
The Louis Vuitton Paris Speedy measures 11.8″ x 8.6″ x 7.9″, available at Louis Vuitton for $2,910.
