The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30 is an iconic handbag that has become a symbol of style all over the world. Its unique shape, spectacular handles and versatile strap for casual cross-body wear are the elements that recommend it for fashionable days in the city or chic getaways. Initially designed for ‘30s travelers, this lightweight, supple and forever in style purse crafted from embossed Empreinte leather is a brilliant choice for modern women who adore subtle elegance.
As it usually happens with beautiful designer handbags, many replica manufacturers try to clone the original design. The thing is that, getting these exquisite purses right is not that easy. The materials used for making a Louis Vuitton bag are some of the most expensive and high quality ones available, the core design is effortlessly sophisticated and the authenticity markings are very distinctive and intricately created. There is nothing easy or common about these products so when you are buying a Speedy Bandouliere 30 online or from a store that isn’t authorized you should really pay great care to the details that make the difference between a fake and the genuine item. Below you will find a very comprehensive and thorough comparison that can serve as a very useful guide for identifying an original LV.
The LV Speedy Bandouliere 30 comes only in the following size: 11.8 x 8.3 x 6.7 inches. Its shape is very particular. This city bag enjoys the characteristics of the classic travelling bag. It is spacious, easy to carry around and versatile. The body has a rectangular shape with rounded corners and the sides are arched as to accommodate as many personal belongings as possible. The unique feature of the purse is that it is manufactured from smooth and supple Empreinte leather. This is not some ordinary leather, but a high quality fabric that feels very light and durable. Due to this choice of material, the Bandouliere doesn’t have a rigid and firm stature. The elegant and high quality fabric bends when the bag is empty, as you can also see in the pictures. Because fake factories do not have access to this superior leather, a replica will most likely have a more defined and sculptured shape (again, this can be easily noticed in the photos). This knockoff doesn’t make any visible creases even if it is completely empty. It will stand tall by its own. Also the surface of the leather has more prominent grains and a colder shine.
These are not the only differences that you can easily notice when comparing the replica with the original LV. The embossed LV logo and flowery motifs are also off. On the real purse, the symbols are in a bigger size and aren’t as deeply and clearly embossed into the material. By making the LV pattern so obvious the final effect is the one of a poorly imitated product. You should really stay away from such a clone as it screams “fake” from miles away.
The handles of the Bandouliere shouldn’t be ignored. These have a very distinctive look. The brand has made them seamlessly round. Their proportions are perfect and their widths on the end parts that connect to the golden brass lugs are straight and identical. The replica has taller arched handles and their ends are narrower and make small creases as to fit on the smaller lugs.
The mistakes continue with the key holder piece that should have an arrow-like shape and the pull piece of the zipper has many long and large leather strips that make it easier to grab it. The fake bag doesn’t have them. On its zipper pull piece there are only two short leather tabs.
The Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30 comes with shiny golden brass pieces and every single one of them carries the company’s name or logo. If you compare the knockoff with the genuine purse you will find a few differences on these parts as well. For instance, the two rounded gold pieces below the point where the handles attach to the body are more spaced apart on the fake bag and the “LOUIS VUITTON” name embossed on them is slightly off. The distance between the letters is uneven and the interior of the characters looks like it was smudged. The small lock charm has also a flaw. It is printed with “LOUIS VUITTON PARIS Made in France”, but the “F” is incomplete. It is missing the two upper lines so it looks like an “I”. Also, the placement of the lock is way off. This part should be attached to the side ring that connects to the removable strap whereas the replica has it attached on the zipper’s pull piece.
The Bandouliere 30 comes with a very elegant and durable black textile lining. Any deviation from this color and type of fabric is a huge mistake. Unfortunately, the knockoff uses a bright blue textile lining that looks very cheap in contrast with the outside black leather.
Fabulous and sophisticated, the LV Speedy Bandouliere 30 is a modern and chic city bag that is perfect for about any type of occasion. From casual shopping and business meetings to public events and stylish traveling, this purse is the ideal companion for all your glamorous looks.

The Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy is one of the most popular and beautiful handbags ever, one that has conquered the hearts of countless fashionistas and it represents a must bag for any self respecting modern city girl. The beauty of this designer purse consists in its elegant shape, fine choice of materials and glamorous lines. It is the perfect contemporary bag.
Being so loved and beautiful, the Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy is one of the most replicated bags on the market. Replica manufacturers are getting better and better at cloning this model and differentiating the original one from a fake can turn out to be a real challenge. Still, there are a few things that can’t be perfectly imitated and I am going to present these things in my review so you can make an informed choice.
The below picture includes a replica and the original Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM. The fake bag in on the left while the authentic purse is on the right. As you can very well observe from the photos, the original handbag has a more elegant look, it stands more firmly and its charm does not hand out like the one of the replica purse. This is because the real LV Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM has the string of the charm made from a stiffer leather and is shorter.
The outside of the two bangs is totally different, this pointing out that the Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag isn’t a very good one. The main cause for this is the leather used for crafting the purse. The material is very shiny and the embossing of the LV monograms into its surface is too pronounced, and these are cluttered and too close together. This makes it look very cheap and fake. The original one is made from a very stiff and quite matte leather and the mongram embossing looks more discrete. The type of leather used for making this bag is also the reason why the replica purse fails to stand tall by its own. You have to stuff it really well in order for it to have a shape similar to the original one- which doesn’t need the same amout of stuffing for standing firmly.
Please also note that the handles of the original Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM bag are beautifully curved. Unfortunately, the replica purse does not have the same arched handles. These are straight looking, without any sort of shape.
The inside lining should be textile fabric of a dark blue color with brown vertical lines. The original bag has a very dark blue color lining while most replicas use a lighter one.
The bottom of the LV Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM has a crossed stitching which meet right in the center of one of the monogram fowers. The color of the stitching is also a dark blue. This very dark blue is called Infinity. In very bright day light it looks blue while in most type of normal light it looks black. The base also has 4 metallic studs, the feet of the purse. These are placed at the starting points of the crossed stitching and each stud cuts off a part of a monogram flower. For example, the top studs cut off the top part of he flower while the lower ones cut off the lower part of the flower. From this point of view, this Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM fake purse looks very authentic.
The Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag has gold hardware just as the authentic bag. All the zippers, charms, studs and rings that connect the handles to the body of the bag are made from solid stainless steel and are coated with gold plating. Every metallic part is engraved with the “Louis Vuitton” name. This makes the bag look very authentic.
Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag has its good and bad parts. Still, if I take a moment to balance them I realize that the bads weight more. The very visible parts of this replica purse like the material, the shape of the handles and the monograms are very poorely replicates while the more hard to notice details such as the stitching and the name engraved on the metallic parts are very well cloned. The problem here is that anyone can tell that this bag is a fake just by looking at its shinny leather and clutered monograms. So, from my point of view, this is a terrible fake and it should serve as an example for what you should avoid when buying a Louis Vuitton Infinity Empreinte Artsy MM replica bag.
