The classic Speedy bag was revisited by Marc Jacobs during the creation of the Denim Spring-Summer 2005 Collection for Louis Vuitton.
Denim Speedy is crafted in Monogram denim, created from a rigorous selection of very high-quality cotton, the canvas is meticulously woven on a jacquard loom in order to highlight the Monogram motif.
The end result is a material that is both lightweight, hard-wearing and very stylish. Given the unique denim washing process, there are no two identical bags from this collection.
This denim bag from Louis Vuitton certainly stands out from the fashion house's regular line of leather handbags for 2 reasons. First of all, this Speedy has an absolutely different shape. There are two pockets with push-lock closures on the front for small items like your keys or mobile phone (yes, in 2005 a mobile phone could fit this pocket) which are also a great decorative element and a long zipped pocket. Second, this is the first time for Louis Vuitton to release a classic non-leather bag.
Though this bag is stylish, it seems that denim is not perceived as a long-lasting material, thus, the price of denim Speedy decreased over the years. However, its size and material makes it great for everyday use and will be able to hold your everyday essentials perfectly. And the denim is timeless – in any color!
