Louis Vuitton Damier Canvas Berkeley

The Speedy is undoubtedly the quintessential Louis Vuitton bag. I doubt that many LV lovers never owned one to begin their obsession with the fine brand. One downside of it to many is that is lacks structure. No matter how much you load in the Speedy, it sags to the ground, unwilling to hold its fine form. To friends of the Speedy, there is now a slightly flashier sibling called the Louis Vuitton Damier Berkeley. Its name is derived from a chic London neighborhood, the Berkeley Square. The materials are common to other Damier canvas bags, smooth leather trim, a red micro suede lining and a golden “Louis Vuitton Inventeur” plaque on the front complete the picture. Its handles are adjustable in length, two side outside pockets offer additional storage room for cellphone or keys. With 12.4″ in width, it is only .4 inches wider than the Speedy and .7 inches taller. Granted, at $1,420 it is twice as expensive as the Damier Speedy, I still think that this bag will capture a large following among LV enthusiasts. Available in Damier or Damier Azure.

The same boring LV designs at the same outrageous prices.

I agree…some of their designs are boring…almost old lady like. I’m really picky.

Don’t like this big metal plaque but otherwise it’s a handsome classic bag

I wonder if it hangs as well as my speedy 25. That’s what I like aobut the Speedy – it is comfortable on my forearm when I’m shopping, unlike the Alma.

I own the Speedy 30 and I absolutley love it. At first I wasn’t too into the lack of structure, but surprisingly it doesn’t sag as much as one would think. I def love the Speedy more than this new bag, and I totally prefer the monogram canvas to the damier. I also agree with other posts about the metal plaque — it’s not doing it for me. I think I’ll stick with my Speedy.

I love my speedy MUCH MORE than this new bag. I also agree, this gold plaque is too much for me

I agree,the gold plaque is too large and detracts from the bag.
