louis vuitton speedy

If you've grabbed your new issue of Grazia (out today!), you will already know that many of the world's grandest luxury labels are reissuing their most iconic styles of handbag for A/W'10. One of favourite out-of-the-archive pieces is the Louis Vuitton Speedy, which was first launched eighty years ago. The monogrammed version was carried by none other than Audrey Hepburn (see the current mag for photo evidence of the adorable Audrey with her bag).

For the ultra-minimalist styling that is set to rule A/W'10, the bag has been re-issued in a stealth-deluxe shade of mink grey. And guess who we spotted out and about with the new bag yesterday? Alexa Chung (who may or may not be our Audrey du jour..). Ms Chung was carrying her £2,500 bag while wearing a geeky-grunge combo of plaid shirt + high waisted skinnies, and the style icon had tied a little plastic skeleton to the Speedy's handle - whatever would Audrey say?
