Louis Vuitton Brings Back The Epi Speedy
Simple Epi Speedys are here again!
At first, I thought it was just the funky, speed racer cruise Epi Speedy bags from the fashion show. But when browsing the Louis Vuitton website to find an Epi Speedy in plain black, it felt like an answered prayer.
The Empreinte Speedys are wonderful in itself. But there’s nothing that beats the nostalgia of an Epi Speedy. The Epi Speedys also close down to the sides of the bag, a nice tweak we’ve seen in the Empreinte styles. It allows more access to the bag and easier to get into while carrying the bag.
Although they only come in size 25 cm, hopefully this paves the way for bigger sized Speedys (because small bags are so unfair). There’s also a denim Epi version of this bag, but I never liked denim Epi.
These new Epi Speedys are the Bandoulière kind, so you get to enjoy the optional sling that it comes with. Also, as with the new Epi bags, you’ll notice the pattern goes diagonal now (before the lines were laid out horizontally).
It’s a beautiful bag, and a wonderfully surprising return of a beloved bag, with the right tweaks where we need them.
