Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton Speedy is one of the most popular and famous bags in the world. Even though it has a history of more than 70 years, it still popular today. Louis Vuitton Speedy is a must-have for a handbag collector. It is practical, classic and it has great history behind it.

Louis Vuitton Speedy
The Speedy marks one of the single most important turning points in Louis Vuitton’s history. In 1932, Louis Vuitton was still a luxury luggage house, with such a reputation that the brand’s designs were starting to spill over into haute couture.

Louis Vuitton Speedy

Georges Vuitton, the son of Louis Vuitton, invented the signature "Keepall" bag in 1930. The long overnight bag, embellished with LV logos (standing for the company's Louis Vuitton) was made for the elite to serve their travel needs. The brand immediately evoked prominence and wealth, and the Keepall became so popular that Georges introduced a smaller bag resembling it (but for everyday use) a couple of years later. It would be named "The Speedy."

Louis Vuitton Speedy

The Speedy is manufactured in four sizes: 25, 30, 35 and 40. The original Speedy 30 was accompanied by the Speedy 25 for Audrey Hepburn in 1965, and later by two larger sizes, the 35 and 40. The number refers to the length in centimeters. This means no matter what you’re doing, or how you want to look, there’s a Louis Vuitton Speedy for you.

Louis Vuitton Speedy

No creative director of Louis Vuitton has ever let a significant collection go by without re-imagining the Speedy. In short, if you don’t want the Monogram version that everyone else has, there are endless alternatives.

Louis Vuitton Speedy
The whole point of the Louis Vuitton canvas in the first place was to be a waterproof, scuff proof, tear proof material for travel bags. As a handbag, there is absolutely nothing (short of dropping it in the furnace) that you can do to seriously damage a Speedy. Combine that with the fact that it’s shape, size and simple design make it unbelievably functional for everyday use, and you really don’t need to care about the iconic image of the bag to see why it’s a must have.
