The Coussin isn’t the only bag given that fluffy pillow-like treatment, because several new Louis Vuitton silhouettes will be progressively launched in the soft (and supple) lambskin in the coming months. One of the latest designs exclusively pre-launched in Singapore would be the Speedy Bandoulière 22, a refreshing update equipped with new elements like the wide detachable strap and gold-tone metallic chain, so if you’re currently on the hunt for a new and different Speedy, this would be it.
While the Speedy Bandoulière typically comes in sizes like 25, 30 and so on, this new size is officially the smallest in the family yet, measuring just 22 cm wide and 19 cm high. Don’t be fooled by the compact size, because it can fit a good deal of essentials thanks to the roomy 13 cm base that will keep your mobile phone, wallet and beauty essentials neatly within.
Now, the best part about the Speedy Bandoulière 22 has to be the provision of two different straps. The gold-tone chain can be kept on for added bling, or it be used for days if you prefer that shorter over-the-shoulder look. As for the jacquard strap, that can be adjusted to a 47 cm drop length, allowing you to sling the bag across the body with ease. The latter is also wider and thicker than your average Bandoulière, earning extra points in terms of style and comfort.
Utility aside, the smooth leather is fully embossed with the monogram pattern, complete with matching handles and strap. Gold-tone elements elevate the look with an extra touch of luxe, and you can’t deny that it looks especially good against the all-black bag. Priced at SGD4550, the bag is available at all Louis Vuitton boutiques now, but you can also purchase it online with complimentary same-day delivery if you place your order before 12 noon.
