    Default christmas present for my wife...help...

    so like most guys, i don't know too much about handbags, purses, etc., but i do know most of the designer names...

    anyways, my wife has been wanting a LV handbag for a long time now and after 4 or 5 Coach bags, i've decided to get her one for christmas this year...as of right now, i'm torn between two LV bags: the Speedy 35 and the Batignolles Horizontal...

    i read a few reviews on here about the speedy 25, 30 and 35....the 35 seemed to have the best reviews out of the three and i've been considering that bag ever since i started looking into getting her one...

    so, i'm here to ask your opinion on the two bags i'm trying to decide on (Speedy 35 and Batignolles)...any personal experiences with either bag? or would you recommend a different bag? ...she loves shoulder-bags and it has to be the monogram canvas...and a large bag....

    any help is much appreciated ladies and thank you in advance... :)

    hello Rico, it very nice of you to get your wife Louis Vuitton. I have the speedy and I think it very good bag and also one of Louis Vuitton biggest selling bag ever. I think she will be happy with this.

    Hi Penelope, thank you for your input...i noticed you work for Louis Vuitton and was wondering if you knew about any new Speedy bags that might be coming out by the end of this year...i would hate to get the Speedy 35 for my wife and find out a new Speedy is coming out soon...i know there is a Speedy 40, but read it is more like a travel bag and is too big for an everyday handbag...

    by the way, i would LOVE to have a job that allowed me to travel all over europe and other parts of the world...i do photography and love traveling, so i envy you for that....and if i was a woman, i would envy you for working at LV...

    hi rico - there are a few different sizes of the speedy (25,30,35,40).. alot of people use the 25 or 30 for everyday. (30 is more common). personally i think the 35 and 40 are too big for everyday wear. also it comes in a few different collections like classic monogram, multicolore, damier, azur, epi, etc.


    ps. eluxury is the only online site that sells authentic LV items.... click here to see the different styles

    hello HauteCouture, thanks for the info on the 35...and yes, eluxury is the only place i've been looking at LV bags...i don't trust ebay, especially on items like this...

    DamierAzur, believe me, i've thought about that over and over...i know for sure it has to be LV, but i'm sure i've narrowed it down to the bag she'll love...

    after looking at pictures of the speedy bags (25, 30, 35) next to actual people and noticing it's not a shoulder bag, i think i'm going to go with the batignolles bag...i just saw a picture of Deeni with hers and now i'm certain it's the right one for my wife...it looks about the same size as her current Coach bag and goes over the shoulder, so i think i'm good...

    Thankyou Rico, yes there are new style coming out called Cruise Speedy and is Mini Lin with stripes. There is also Mirage and Dentelle speedy which are already out but maybe these are hard to get hold of in America. Hope your wife is very happy

    The speedy 30 was my first bag, and honestly, my most used. The 35 and 40 are too large for everyday use. If there is not an LV store in your town, call an LV store and order it or use eluxury. You definitely want to make sure you are getting your wife an authentic purse!

    I'm gonna be the weird one out of the group... my vote is for the Batignolles Horizontal. Although the speedy is a very classic style, I personally don't like how it loses its shape. I know, I'm weird! It just really bugs me, that's all. LOL! The Batignolles is more structured and would be very work appropriate. But it would work great as an everyday tote bag too... especially for shopping!

    awesome! thanks for the reply boysRsmelly (haha, love the name)...that's the bag i'm actually going with right now and will probably end up getting...unless something better comes out between now and christmas...

    i agree that after looking at numerous pictures and such, i don't like the way the speedy can lose it's shape...yeah i could get a base shaper, but the batignolles just looks more stable...

    If she prefers handheld then go with the Speedy and Batignolles if she prefers shoulder bags...

    I absolutely LOVE my Speedy 30's.... but you did mention that she likes shoulder bags.... so if that's the case go for the batignolles.... I agree that a 35 might be a little tooo big for everyday use.... the 30 is just perfect and spacious.... In my opinion.... but if you know she'll like a shoulder bag, def. consider getting the batignolles... some people can't get used to arm bags or saggy bags.... so you'll be on the safe side with the batignolles.... Good luck...
