Louis Vuitton Introduces High-Tech Handbags

Louis Vuitton recently showcased new handbags that include a digital screen on the outside of the bag.

The bags made their debut earlier this month at the company’s fashion show in New York City. They also appeared on Louis Vuitton’s official Instagram account.

During the fashion show, one bag featured a single screen, another had two screens. Both bags displayed city views and what appeared to be the demo of an internet browser.

Royole, a Chinese tech company, created the handbag screens. Royole gained notoriety last fall when it released the first ever foldable smartphone, the Flexpai.

Called the “Canvas of the Future,” Louis Vuitton’s handbag screens reportedly feature 1920×1440 pixel resolution. The iPhone 8 Plus’ screen, by comparison, has a 1920×1080 pixel resolution.

Right now, the handbags are just prototypes. It is unclear whether Louis Vuitton plans to make them available to consumers.

This is not the first time Louis Vuitton has integrated screens into its runway. Back in Spring 2008, then-Artistic Director Marc Jacobs showcased a trunk with an LED screen playing SpongeBob SquarePants.
