Louis Vuitton’s Speedy Bandoulière come with a Shoulder Strap

Louis Vuitton’s bags have been preferred around the world by the affluent and discerning customers for over a century now. But amongst their several popular designs the Speedy has turned into an icon. It was first launched in the 1930s and was originally called the ‘Express’ denoting the new faster means of travel. It was the fast changing era between the two world wars. The shape of the bag elegantly combined the form and function. It was the perfect city bag which had just enough space. It was feminine but not girly and very sophisticated and understated.

The contemporary version of the bag called Speedy also represents the core qualities of the brand. The material is coated canvas which is lightweight and waterproof and has been improved and perfected over a century and made uniquely supple and durable. The cowhide leather used in the bag is naturally tanned to get a deep amber patina. The Toron handles are hand stitched to achieve maximum comfort. The tiny brass padlock also seems to be the result of skilled craftsmanship. The flawless details like creasing and red edge dying makes Speedy the perfect Louis Vuitton bag.

Now we also have a variation on the basic Speedy that makes it more versatile. It is the Speedy Bandoulière in Monogram canvas. This new arrival features for the first time, in a Speedy design, an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap in natural cowhide leather that makes the bag more suitable for the demands of modern life. The Speedy Bandoulière can be carried in new ways. You can drape it over the shoulder or sling it across the body apart from carrying it the traditional way in the hand or on the arm. Available in four sizes between 25 and 40 with prices increasing marginally from $1,010 to $1,070 it is the perfect extension of the iconic bag.
