Why You Should Own a Louis Vuitton Speedy

When investing in a designer bag, you want the decision to purchase to be well thought out and not on a whim. While you’re figuring out which bag to get, you’re likely researching on various websites, and taking into consideration the different options you have, all while keeping your budget in mind.

Well, we’ve decided to highlight the famous Louis Vuitton Speedy bag today and give you all the reasons why you should own this one. There truly isn’t one reason to NOT own this bag, but we thought we’d break down what’s so great about it.

First, a little background…The Speedy was launched in 1930, as the ‘Express.’ It was inspired by the era’s travel revolution, as this bag is a traveler’s best companion. It was created for the girl about town, and to this day, that holds just as true.

Size Options

The Speedy comes in not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 sizes…25, 30,35, and 40. Those numbers are referencing the front of the bag measurement in centimeters. It’s nice to have a variety to choose from when it comes to size. While it may not seem like big differences between the sizes, you’ll still appreciate the fact that you can select a bigger or smaller one. Thus, it’s nice that the Speedy offers that range.


This bag, quite literally, goes with anything and everything. Whether you’re out running errands or going out to a nice event, this bag works. And because none of the sizes are all too big, it won’t feel like a large daytime bag. It has the space to hold more than enough of your essentials, but isn’t overbearing, which makes it the ideal bag.

Leather Options

Along with size and versatility, there isn’t only one leather the bag comes in. You can choose from other iconic Louis Vuitton leathers, such as the Damier Azur Canvas and Damier Monogram Canvas, among many others.


All Louis Vuitton bags are of the best quality, and this is just another reason the Speedy makes a great purchase. This bag will last a lifetime, and the silhouette will never go out of style. It’s been around since the 30’s, and it’s still one of the most well-known bags out there.

These are just some of the (many) reasons why the Louis Vuitton Speedy is a great choice and a purchase you won’t regret making. It’s a classic and we absolutely adore it. Enjoy browsing below, as you’ll find some fashionable style setters wearing their Louis Vuitton Speedy bags out and about!
