Louis Vuitton’s Speedy bag has been the choice of sophisticated women the world over since its debut in the 1930s, appearing on the arms of fashion royalty from Audrey Hepburn to Madonna. But, as with all good things, the Speedy needed a modern face-lift. The brand made a few minor improvements, such as adding a shoulder strap, that make a major difference in bringing the famous carryall up-to-date. Louis Vuitton did not forget about its loyal male following, either, introducing the Damier Infini collection. Comprising the Keepall, reversible belts, and the Porte Document Voyage, the line features the maison’s signature Damier check embossed in supple, specially selected calf leather, giving the iconic design a soft yet masculine virtue. Both styles can be found at the new Tysons Galleria boutique, the largest to date in the Washington metro area, opening in November.
