Our Ultimate Bag Guides series is where we highlight all the need-to-know information (prices, size comparisons, colors and availability, among other salient details) of the high-end accessories market’s most sought-after bags, and today, we’re adding an absolute classic to that list: the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag. First conceptualized in the early 1930s as Vuitton’s first bag intended for daily carry, the bag was based on another LV classic: the Keepall.
The Speedy was first introduced in the 30 size (Louis Vuitton’s numerical size names refer to the width of the bag’s front panel in centimeters), and the smaller 25 was added in 1959 at the request of actress Audrey Hepburn. Fast forward to 2016 and the bag comes in four numerical sizes and a super-tiny version known as the Nano. To get price and size info, as well as photo comparisons and all the other details you could need to decide which Speedy you want, check out our guide below.
