The Louis Vuitton Crocodile Old Speedy Flap will cost you a pretty penny

Louis Vuitton’s Spring runway show was a joy to behold for a variety of reasons: the enormous carousel set piece bearing dozens of the world’s best models, girlish clothes in the most powdery and feminine of pastels, luxury in every detail. The entire collection felt fresh, light and joyful. Personally, though, I was distracted by one thing and one thing only, which was trying to guess how much the littany of crocodile pieces, from bags to jackets, would cost once they hit retail. Not only is crocodile astronomically expensive all on its own, but Vuitton tends to charge a premium for all of its products, above and beyond most another brands.

For the handbag star of the collection, the Louis Vuitton Crocodile Old Speedy Flap, we now have an answer, but go ahead and try to guess before you peek.

$33,000.

My personal guess was around $35,000 and I thought that even that kind of figure might be a little low, particularly when you consider that so many designers seem to be in some sort of unofficial race to see who can produce the most ridiculously expensive bag of them all. (Hermes probably has everyone already beat on that anyway.) Not that $33,000 is something that is even within the realm of reason to pay for a handbag – it’s not! But, you know, it’s closer than The Row.

Louis Vuitton surely has clients who will pony up for this bag in one of its three colors – mint, jaune (pale yellow) or nuit (navy blue with a bit of softness) – or who knows, maybe someone will get it in all three. Primarily, though, pieces like this one serve a public relations function; not only do they get people talking, but they represent the designer as a purveyor of the sort of rarified goods that only a tiny sliver of the global population can ever hope to possess.

Introducing the Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere

Handbags

The introduction of a new Louis Vuitton Speedy is always cause for celebration among handbag fiends, and we think that this particular bag will be of wide interest. The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandoulière is similar to the monogram Speedy that we all know and love, but it brings with it the thoroughly modern addition of an integrated shoulder strap. Optional straps have long been available for purchase to clip onto the traditional Speedy’s handle attachments, but this dedicated strap brings with it a design logic that is lacking in a simple add-on.

Itching to see this Speedy in action? Of course you are, which is why Vuitton and Caroline Sieber put together a catalog of shots with the Speedy Bandoulière out and about on a sunny day in London. We have those shots, plus a price list for the new bag, after the jump.

Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy

Handbags

Louis Vuitton Watercolor SpeedyFirst and foremost, much of the information on this new bag from Louis Vuitton is still not set-in-stone nor is anyone 100% sure of the truth behind it all. We have all heard conflicting stories, information, prices, release dates, etc. But you know a bag is a sure hit when the rumors begin (sick but true!). Richard Prince collaborated with Marc Jacobs to design artistic bags for the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2008 line. The hottest item right now is the Louis Vuitton Watercolor Speedy which is said to be released in the US on May 1,2008. The release date has been changed numerous amounts of times. Another piece of information that everyone is uncertain of is the price. The early look book says the bag will be $1,185 but I have heard prices going up to $1,600. My wonderful SA at Bal Harbour did some research and believes it will be around $1,300. The next piece of information that has many confused is the size. While the Louis Vuitton Speedy is available in a size 30 and 35, this bag is said to only come in size 35. The monogram pattern is designed in a manner that has the orange, red, and yellow paints looking like they were painted on with watercolor paint. This bag has an incredibly long wait list at many stores and the masses are clamoring to get the next ‘big’ Speedy. The price is said to be around $1,300 via your local LV boutique when available.

If you think the Watercolor Speedy is stunning, wait until you see the Louis Vuitton Aquarelle Bag. This bag is a modified Speedy, a more refined and chic style. Of course the Speedy is a house classic, but the framed top shape of the Aquarelle really draws your attention. The frame is also made of wood and the handles are made of lizard. This is a stunning bag in the Richard Prince collaboration with Louis Vuitton. If the price were not so steep, I would have got on this list, but I just could not justify it. These pieces are LV collectors items, without a doubt. The price on this bag is said to be around $3,600, but it will most likely end up costing over this amount. Release date should also be around May 1st.

Accessorize My Speedy 30

Handbags

louis vuitton keychainWelcome to Tuesdays with Twiggers, a new weekly guest blogger dedicated solely to all things Louis Vuitton.

Someone once told me that the right accessory can make or break an entire outfit. Now the same can be said for your handbag! Feeling blah about that boring black Balenciaga? Or maybe that brown Bottega is getting boring? The solution has been right in front of us, or should I say dangling right in front of us, for years. That’s right, that keychain you’ve been carrying can double as a bag charm. Even that fancy Hermes scarf tied around your neck can adorn your bag. Think bright colors to take away the boredom of that basic black or brown bag! I stumbled upon this little cutie a couple weeks ago and my bags have been thanking me ever since. Made by Louis Vuitton, this resin keychain can easily clip onto every bag out there. With so many bright colors it will match any outfit I wear! The small, gold Louis Vuitton plaque adds a little touch of elegance. And at only $225 it won’t break the bank.

Call 866-VUITTON or go to www.eluxury.com to purchase.
