Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière Featuring Caroline Sieber


Louis Vuitton scored one of fashion’s most wanted celebrity stylists, Caroline Sieber, to model and style their upgraded iconic bag: the Speedy. Launched in the 30’s as the “Express”, its name evoked the world’s new, faster means of travel, its shape reflected the era’s elegant fusion of form and function. From the start, the Speedy was the complete, quintessential city bag: roomy yet never bulky, feminine but not girly, sublimely understated and utterly sophisticated.

Today, the Speedy encapsulates Louis Vuitton’s unparalleled savoir-faire: the coated canvas, uniquely supple and durable, lightweight and waterproof, perfected over the course of a century and a half; the emblematic cowhide leather, rigorously selected and naturally tanned, which with time acquires a deep amber patina; the Toron handles – after the Latin for “small rope” – painstakingly hand-stitched and so comfortable to hold; the flawless details – the tiny brass padlock, the creasing, the red edge-dying – that all say Louis Vuitton.

Now the Speedy has an alter ego: the Speedy Bandoulière in Monogram canvas. Equally fashionable, even more functional, this eagerly awaited new arrival, featuring, for the first time, an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap in natural cowhide leather – effortlessly adapts to the demands of modern life, in the city and beyond.

As versatile as it is stylish, the Speedy Bandoulière can be worn in new ways – casually slung across the body or draped gracefully over the shoulder – as well as carried in the conventional manner, in the hand or on the arm, with the shoulder strap then becoming a deliberate detail. Four sizes and an array of possibilities that renew the Speedy’s timelessly elegant allure. The Speedy and the Speedy Bandoulière. One spirit, two styles: the cult classic and the new must-have.

  • Searching for LV

    The Speedy Bandouliere looks like a great bag that I’m thinking of purchasing. I love that it has the strap which makes the bag more functional. Wish they had selected someone who could model the bags better, though. When I was doing on-line research on this bag, I came across pictures of the bags with the model as posted above and I thought for a moment that I was looking at LV replica bags. Some of the pictures look awkward especially the ones in which she was carrying the bigger bag which, I’m guessing, is the Speedy 35. I think a real model or a celebrity model would have made the bags look better on. I researched further and found out that the girl is a famous celebrity stylist. I’m sure she is very good at what she does but I don’t think she has represented the LV bag in the way that it was intended.
