Damier Alma or Speedy 25?

  1. I'm in the market for a new Damier. My only other Damier piece is a Tribeca Long, which I love, but I want another Damier that is handheld and bigger. I recently purchased a Damier Azur Speedy 25, but exchanged it for the Azur Saleya PM because I thought that the inside of the Azur Speedy was kind of plasticy, and didn't like the smell. The inside didn't seem lined, KWIM? So my question is, does the Damier Ebene Speedy have the same kind of interior, only in red? Or is it lined like a Viva Cite MM for example? For those of you ladies who have both the Alma and Speedy, which do you prefer and why? Thanks!
     
  2. I think you should get the Damier Alma. The interior has a fabric lining like the Speedy, only in red.
     
  3. Second that! I love the Alma! It is such a beauty of a bag!
     
  4. eluxury says "Red textile lining with a patch pocket" for both damier alma and speedy so i think it's same as azur speedy. personally i prefer textile lining as i think it's lower maintenance vs the microfiber lining :smile:.
     
  5. I like both but I prefer the Speedy. I'm not sure of the lining tho for both?
     
  6. Is it just me, or has the quality/materials of of the Speedy (and Papillon for that matter), been downgraded in recent years? I remember looking at the Speedy years ago and it had a true, textile lining like the Alma, or the Cabas Piano. But as I said, the Azur Speedy that I bought didn't seem lined like that. It almost appeared as if the canvas exposed. Same goes for the Papillon. I saw a new Papillon 26 recently and the workmanship just didn't look as good as it did years ago back when the Damier Papillon had more of a terracotta lining vs the red that it is today.
     
  7. I have a damier alma and a damier speedy 30 and they have the same exact lining. The speedy will hold more because it's flexible. You can't stuff too much in the alma without the zipper looking all funky. For the price, the speedy is more worth the $$. That being said, I still totally love my damier alma. If it's a more structured look you want, def. go with the alma.
     
  8. Go for the damier alma -- it is so gorgeous and classic!
     
  9. I think both are classy bags but I prefer the speedy over the alma.
     
  10. Alma Alma Alma!! X5804580945890324580454
     
  11. I like both Alma and Speedy... but to pick one of the two, I'd go with Alma.
     
  12. Alma.
     
  13. I have speedy and I love it.
