Louis Vuitton Speedy: Everything about the designer bag

The history of the Louis Vuitton Speedy

It all started in the year 1924, when Louis Vuitton launched the Keepall as a holdall. The bag is characterized by the fact that it is easy to fold, it is very light and you can fit everything you need for a vacation. Hence the name “Keepall” for “keep everything”. The fashion label quickly felt the success and then set itself the task of bringing a smaller model onto the market. 1930 “The Express” came onto the market, which was quickly renamed “Speedy”. The Speedy was intended as a practical travel bag that can easily accommodate the most important items and is ideal for taking along as hand luggage. An ideal travel companion that fits comfortably under you on the plane or on the train was born. The Louis Vuitton Speedy then celebrated great success in the 1960s, when the iconic actor Audrey Hepburn from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” became aware of the bag. 1965 It was supposed to be a trip to Rome for actors and she wanted a smaller, lighter model of Speedy to take with her on vacation. The French fashion house didn’t need to be told twice and created the Speedy 25.
