I was curious to see what kind of bags LV makes without the logo (I'm not really into the logo look)...They have very classic designs and nice pieces, but this one, on the other hand!! I just had to share

A LV "speedy" is a travel bag. It is made to be crushed and stored in your luggage for use when you travel.

I buy high end knock off designer bags for a faction of the price. No one knows. I have Hermes in every colour and people think i paid 10k per a bag when i only paid 100 Euro.

Fakes!? Yuck! You'd be better off to take the money and go by a no name bag then to buy that junk.

Hermes is 10k a bag i have a fake one in almost every color and fabric and they are good fakes. even the sales people can't tell.

so happens many employees of these companies sell the hard wear and fabric to mills in other countries and make the same exact purse and sell them dirt cheap.

The sales people can't tell? Pu-leeeeze! Take your "Hermes" into the shop for a cleaning or repair and see if they will work on a fake. Of course they have too much class to call out customers sporting counterfeit merchandise-that would be a poor sales technique not to mention tacky. I am sure they roll their eyes though.

The fakes are getting very good, but they are still fakes.

There is a big difference between counterfeit and inspired by. If I can't have the real deal....inspired by is a lot better in my book. But taking the exact hardware, designs, and fabrication is wrong.

I understand you. but when a company charges 10k for a bag they deserve to be confertited. no bag is worth 10k and for me greed is gross. there is no caviar or gold on the bag its just leather with hardware nothing special to charge so much. Plus who really cares. I don't i have fakes so I am to smart to pay greedy prices . If you want to waste 10k or someone else by all means I will not battle you. Me I rather use that kind of money for something else to each is own in fashion
