Hello everyone!
what do you prefer DE or DA?
I want buy a speedy 25B but I can’t decide which would suit me better.
i don’t own any DA in my collection and my only DE piece is my Neverfull.
Here in Germany is also rainy usually.
Would would you buy?

I never owned anything in DA but love DE.
DA is rather for summer in my opinion, and looks "out of its place" in Autumn and Winter.
Plus, the vachetta suits the canvas well when brand new but much less when it gets darker.
It also depends on whether you look for a workhorse, as I regularly see DA bags severely victims of color transfer.
So, that was my totally neutral point of view ^^

I like both prints. I have the speedy b25 in DE and its my go to during the winter though the winter in my place is like a autumn in other country. The DA print is so pretty more for summer for me. I have the PA in azur and Pochette felicie in azur and both lovely. I dont worry for the color transfer because i intentionally use them when i wear lighter clothes. I love the look of the speedy in DA, so pretty. if i can afford to buy i will get the 3 prints of speedy b25. i have the nano speedy and i never baby it. I enjoy my bags. I think nothing to worry about even if its raining for the DA print, except for the vachetta. So if you are interested you can try searching for the apple guard some people use to protect their vachetta pieces. For me i prefer to sun tan it in 1week before using it. Thats what i did to my nano speedy. Its basically a personal preference. :smile:

DA is nice for summer but I don't think it goes well with winter and fall outfits. Also with wearing it crossbody I'd worry about color transfer from any darker clothes. DE is so beautiful and easier to care for.

I don't like the look of the DA when it's dirty plus you always have to worry on the vaschetta and the color transfer. DE for me always.

I would go for the DE. It looks beautiful on the speedy. I tend to stick to smaller pieces with minimal or no Vachetta for the DA. For example the PA or SLG’s.

I have both in the original version. Honestly, I used to like DE print. I have grown very fond of the Vachetta leather since then. I use "Kiwi Protect All" on the leather and I have had no issues with color transfer either since I bought it in 2015. Could also be because I don't often use it ‍♀ I'd go with DE if you want an everyday no fuss bag. But the DA is so pretty!

I was also on the fence with this and went with the DE - I can carry year-round and worry-free.

I love love love DA print, but it is higher maintenance and needs more consideration when carrying.

Hi, I’m also from Germany. :wave: Knowing our weather, definitely DE! Can be worn worry free all year long, easy to style, easy to maintain. Have Speedy B 25 in DE as well and love it! It’s one of my most used bags just because it’s so worry free and can be worn in the rain as well. The DE print goes also well with all colors!
