Do we really need the $1 million Louis Vuitton “Millionaire Speedy”? This yellow-hued handbag has recently been gracing the arm of Pharrell Williams, Louis Vuitton’s newly anointed artistic director of menswear.
The $1 million price tag is definitely blinding. But the leather is so soft that the accessory seems to melt when you hold it in your arm! Is it really $1 million? Yup! Well, then…let’s wait for a mega sale or a lottery!
Designed by Pharrell Williams, the Louis Vuitton Millionaire Speedy is cloaked in exclusivity, available solely to those who belong to the upper echelons of the LV clientele, top-tier customers, close friends, and the ones mingling in Pharrell’s and Louis Vuitton’s inner circle.
Millionaire Speedy is the epitome of luxury, crafted from premium crocodile leather. Available in five vivid colors – yellow, rouge (red), vert (green), bleu (blue), and maroon (brown). Williams says he reimagined the bag as a Canal Street counterfeiter might, in primary colors, but on leather so soft it seems to melt when you hold it on your arm!
The design features the iconic Louis Vuitton monogram and is finished with gold hardware and diamond pendants that justify its million-dollar price tag. But these lifetime-a-piece handbags aren’t readily available. Williams said these bags come with a unique buying experience. “They are not up for grabs upfront in stores, but rather through a secretive, backdoor approach that mirrors the clandestine nature of obtaining luxury knockoffs on Canal Street.”
The $1 million price reflects Louis Vuitton Millionaire Speedy’s authentic and exclusive nature.
