I can call myself the lucky owner of 3 Speedy bags: the "Monogram" Speedy, the "Azur Damier" Speedy" and the "Ebene Damier" Speedy
The oldest one is the monogram Speedy, I bought it in 2009 I think. You can see that the handles have aged a bit but this gives the bag its vintage look I like. Only a couple of months ago a friend told me you could get your bag personalised with your initials for free, a great service of Louis Vuitton. This Monogram Speedy has already been on many journeys with me.
The Damier Azur is my "least" favourite of the 3. I don't use this bag that much because of the colors. First of all these are more summer colors and secondly I'm afraid the bag gets dirty. The other Speedy's I even take out to parties but seriously if somebody would spill a drink on this one, I would probably go insane ;) I personalised this bag with a keychain.
The Damier Ebene I bought a couple of weeks ago in Milan. When I was younger I always preferred the Monograme because of the obvious "LV". But with age come wisdom and my preference moved to the Damier Ebene bag. I bought this bag with a bandolier which I would advise to every single one of you. It makes the bag a bit more expensive but also more useful. Carrying around a bag whole day long on your arm is super painful so I really wanted this bag to be more practical.
Buying the bag in Milan was a spectacle on itself. After buying the bag I had to leave my new "baby" for 2 hours in the store so the staff of Louis Vuitton could put my initials on it. After two hours I went back to the store and they told me to go the second floor. This floor was really mouthwatering since all the clothes of the runway show where displayed there. We had to wait to get into an office. There I got my bag and a staff member wrapped it in the famous brown box and bag.
Here you see which colors,... you can choose to put on your bag.
