Every season I wonder what Louis Vuitton will create. I know I won’t like everything, but I can count on Louis Vuitton to make a few bags that are absolutely lust-worthy, it’s just what they do. When we shared a closer look at their Spring 2012 collection, I remember not being entirely impressed. Of course there was a theme – lightness and femininity paired with a whimsical touch – but as many have said, the bags look like they are made out of plastic (which they aren’t, just look at the price tags).
But nestled into this collection is a perfect summer piece, the Louis Vuitton Speedy North South bag. Nautical blue and cream calfskin leather offset one another in a take on the Louis Vuitton house classic.
As much as I love carrying a bag on my shoulder or crossbody, there is a timeless appeal to carrying a bag by hand or in the crook of your arm. The original Speedy became iconic for that and I really love this reinterpretation of one of the most well-known bags of all time. The dimensions are fairly large, 17.3 x 9.8 x 15.7″. For all you summer lovers, this bag is calling for a trip to the local yacht club. And in order to buy it, you need to have save up yacht club kind of money. This Louis Vuitton gem will set you back $4700.
