Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube
This Fall there are alot of beautiful handbags coming out. I’ve been obsessing about quite a few, but my absolute favorite out of them all is the Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube. There is nothing to say about this bag other than the fact that it is stunning from handle to base. The Speedy has always been my favorite handbag by Louis Vuitton. I’ve always wanted a black Speedy, and the Epi just never did it for me. When I first saw pictures of the Speedy Cube a few months back my mouth literally dropped to the floor. Some people hate it; some people have mixed feelings about it; and some people, like me, love it with every beat of their heart. I’m completely crushing over the embossed leather. Yes, it may be a little gaudy or perhaps just plain “too much” but this bag is definitely unique especially to the Louis Vuitton brand. Louis Vuitton is know for having the emblem “LV” printed all over their handbags, but it’s quite different when you see “Louis Vuitton” printed all over one of the handbags. The last time I can remember “Louis Vuitton” being printed all over a handbag was on the iconic limited edition Grafitti colelction. But of course, to my fashion eye, the Speedy Cube is much more stunning than any of the Graffiti handbags.
The Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube makes me want to open up a new credit card, run to the store and capture it in my arms. Unfortunately, the Speedy Cube comes with a hefty, hefty price. The Speedy Cube retails for more than $2,700, but if you got the cash it’s a definite plus to any handbag collection. The Speedy Cube comes out this Fall but has recently had an early release in New York. Be sure to get on a waiting list to get one of these lovely handbags, because it’s a fact that these bags will fly off the shevles of your local boutique.
