This week, it's bags with LED-integrated screens at the top of all things fashion hype. For the first time, prototypes of the deemed “Canvas Of The Future Bag” premiered at Louis Vuitton’s Cruise 2020 Show in New York—and the big question is, what’s the extent of the screen’s functionality?
For now, we know the Nicolas Ghesquiere-designed bags (taking the form of a bucket handbag and duffle) were inspired by the trans-Atlantic crossings between Paris and New York, fusing the elegance of the City of Light with the underground fashion of the Big Apple. The screens are built-in flexible displays and have a 1920x1440 resolution, and word on the street is that they’re set to be an extension of your smartphone. Whether they’re locked to be a touchscreen or have internet browsing is yet to be confirmed.
As for the pricing, it’s early days yet. These babies are just in their mock phase but a standard Louis Vuitton sits at a hefty $2000 (or more) so expect the TV bags to eat into your savings a touch.
