The Speedy 30 Bandoulière, the icon of the House, has been reworked in a sophisticated way that perfectly matches with the spirit of the line. It is a timeless elegant bag for the fashionable woman. The discreet embossing on its supple Monogram Empreinte leather is the symbolic imprint of Louis Vuitton’s heritage and craftsmanship and also adds an extra touch of refinement.
Speedy comes with a removable and adjustable leather strap which makes the bag very versatile allowing you to carry it in various ways: casually slung across the body or draped gracefully over the shoulder, carried in the hand or hooked over the arm by its emblematic Toron handles. Shiny golden brass hardware, smooth leather trim, textile lining, an interior double pocket, a zipped interior pocket, and bottom studs finish the whole look.
Monogram Empreinte Speedy 30 Bandoulière measures 11.8″ x 8.3″ x 6.7″ and comes in a wide array of colors: Neige (Ivory), Infini (Midnight Blue), Terre (Brown), Orient (Bright Red) Aube (Dark Violet), and Aurore (Raspberry). Available at Louis Vuitton stores for US$2870.
The Monogram Empreinte Speedy also comes in a smaller size 25. Learn more about it here: Monogram Empreinte Speedy 25 Bandoulière.
Speedy: A History
Impossible though it may be now to imagine, this icon among icons was not always called the Speedy. Born in the 1930s, the little sister of the legendary Keepall was originally christened the “Express”, in reference to that era’s passion for new and faster means of transportation.
It even, for a time, bore the name “Vernet”, after a street near Louis Vuitton’s home in Paris. Neither suited it quite so well as “Speedy”, the name by which it is now affectionately known at the four corners of the globe.
