Everyone knows the iconic Louis Vuitton Speedy, and everyone also knows that Louis Vuitton updates this coveted classic with each season. For Louis Vuitton Spring 2013, Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs decided to add a geometric note with lots and lots of squares. Checks make a huge appearance, but my attention went to this updated version of the LV classic, which has been dubbed the Louis Vuitton Speedy Cube.

An updated treatment on the Damier pattern, the Damier Facette is made with brushed shiny calf leather and a structured English frame. There is something fun and different about these bags, a bit more playful. The structured frame helps combat one of the biggest complaints about the LV Speedy, its lack of shape, and gives a specific dimensionality to the bag. Available in both MM and PM in a variety of colors, the price varies from $1,990-$2,280. Our question is, what do you think, love it or leave it?

    I don’t like it very much.

  • I love it, especially the yellow hue. It just screams modern elegance.

  • Iram

    I love the design of it but not too big on the colours.

  • sue

    It’s cute, but I just find an 8″ deep bag so unwieldy to actually carry… leave it.

  • Sandra

    When you budget allows only a couple bags a year….this one probably does not rank up there enough to purchase…but I like it.

  • mlle p

    Maybe in a darker color – not keen on either of these.

  • Stella

    leave it!

  • Silversun

    I like the structure (very Mad Men) and updated Damier design (less recognisably LV logo-y), but the north-south stretch is a bit too long for my liking. It looks like it would be awkward to carry. Would have preferred something that’s a bit shorter.

  • TFlan

    Cute. The material is a bit weird. It would be nice if it were iPad fiendly and in monogram.

  • klynneann

    It looks plastic-y to me, though I bet it probably looks better in person.

  • pixiegirlie

    I’d like it more if it was E/W vs N/S shape wise, also not a fan of the colors.
