I have been searching through lots of threads as I would really like to buy a Empreinte Speedy. My problem is I just cannot decide on the colour as I don't live near an LV store & have never seen the colours in real life. The colours I like are Aube & Infini, I have seen many pics on here but they all look different, I gather that the Infini is really dark & that it almost looks black but its the Aube that I need more info on, is it really quite bright or a subdued colour, is it more plum or blue toned? If any kind ladies or gents could point me in the direction of a true to life colour pic that would be great, or if you have any LV items in Aube & Infini that you could take a pic of together that would be very much appreciated. I have also posted a pic of the only purple bag that I own to compare to for your opinions if you think the colour is very similar. Its a Mulberry Bayswater in Eggplant, is this very close to Aube?

Yes it's very similar to that colour. I have the same problem on deciding colours, but ended up with Infini.

Congrats on your Infini speedy serene, I bet it's just stunning IRL. I would have to order online so very difficult to decide on colour, you don't think Aube is any brighter than my Eggplant Bays then? Am not sure I would like Aube if it was alot brighter than my Bays!

I have seen the aube, it is seriously gorgeous, but so very similar to your Bays that you might feel anti-climatic. In your place, I would go for Infini. This is a stunning color as well.

Take pics when you decide!!!

I have an infini artsy and she's a chameleon! Sometimes it looks black - sometimes it look dark blue. It's a rich, fantastic low maintenance color. Since you already have a beautiful colored leather bag similar to aube - i vote Infini. GL!

Hi I have the Aube one for 2 weeks now and I truly love it. I agree it looks very different in all sorts of lighting. Here is a picture of my lovely outside in the sunlight. (on synthetic grass) Hope this helps.

I have the Speedy empreinte in Aube. I feel the picture of this bag on vuitton.com is really true to the reality. It is a dark purple, really similar to the Mulberry bag you have. I have attached two pictures of the bag, taken the same day, as you can see the real colour is difficult to catch.
Hope this helps !

Thankyou so much for the pics, think my heart says go for Aube as theres just something about it that takes my breath away a bit, Infini's so pretty too though, I do also have dark blue & black bags too so its not really a case of going for something I don't have, just literally a case of 'will I love the colour'. Oh why do these bags have to be sooooo stunning!! :biggrin:

I would say the bayswater is very similar in color to the aube--I don't own anything in aube, but I've seen the pieces numerous times in the store. I do own an artsy in infini and it's a very dark navy and many people who are not familiar with LV think it looks black. BTW--love, love, love your bays!!

It's a very deep purple IMO. It's like dark eggplant. I really like it. The infini is my least favorite. I have the aurore and its gorgeous. But, you have to like a pop of color. The aube is pretty enough to be colorful without being loud.

Aw thanks Stacy31 thats very sweet of you. Yes this is what bothers me a little about Infini as I recently moved on a bag that I didn't use that was a really dark Ink Blue that looked almost black, I think I've just convinced myself that I didn't love it enough as it looked black not blue. Perhaps I just love the look of Infini as in pics it always looks so classy & timeless, I just want to make the right decision as it'll be my 1st LV (probably not my last though at the rate I'm falling in love with the bags). :biggrin:
