The history of Louis Vuitton Speedy

Louis Vuitton Speedy bags

The Speedy, a true classic from Louis Vuitton, was designed in 1933.

Its continued success ranks it amongst the most timeless and famous items in luxury leather goods. It is both elegant and practical and can be worn for an evening out or for travelling and look equally chic.

It was designed to meet the taste for sport, travel and mobility that characterised the thirties. The Speedy has rounded leather handles and the later models also have a shoulder strap. It fastens with a zip and there is a gold-plated brass padlock and key for extra security. It has a large capacity and comes in four sizes: 25, 30, 35 and 40cm. There is a brass ring that allows the owner to customise it by adding interior pouches attached with snap hooks.

The Speedy comes in a range of colours and materials: Monogram canvas, multicoloured Monogram, Azur or Ebène Damier canvas and Epi leather.

The Speedy is an iconic Louis Vuitton bag that has appeared in many guises in capsule collections by contemporary artists.
