Louis Vuitton first introduced the classic monogram canvas in 1896. Today, Louis Vuitton continues to produce some of the best quality bags and accessories in the world, with superior styling, craftsmanship, and materials.
A smaller version of the keepall bag was introduced in 1930’s but did not really become a classic until Audrey Hepburn was seen with one in 1960’s. The Speedy 25 was a custom request from Audrey Hepburn. The rest is history as the Speedys have withstood the test of time and ever-changing trends to remain one of the most popular bags released to date. Today, the Speedy is made in a number of sizes with the 40 cm size being the largest.
