You feeling this yet?! It’s the Louis Vuitton Flexible Screen handbag, biatches!
Flexible screens are so in vogue right now. From Samsung to OLED products, they’re practically the “in-thing” but whoever though handbag makers would join the madness? No one other than Louis Vuitton has got the guts.
The leading handbag maker displayed a set of handbags on it’s runway today. Named Canvas of the Future, #LouisVuitton premiered prototypes of a new cutting-edge bag design that features built-in flexible displays, which Louis Vuitton tells Engadget are AMOLED and have a 1,920 x 1,440 resolution.
Two handbag prototypes were debuted during the LV’s Cruise 2020 runway show in New York City during the week: One with a single screen and another with two, and both displayed videos of random city views and what appeared to be a demo of an internet browser.
According to Engadget, Louis Vuitton explained that these are “the basis for reconsidering the digital Canvas of the Future,” adding that it is “always in search of the fusion of savoir-faire and innovation.” The company didn’t say if it made the screens in-house or if they were outsourced, and there’s no word on whether these high fashion-meets-emerging tech handbags will ever make it past their prototype stage. If they do, however, don’t expect them to be cheap — just remember that Louis Vuitton has wireless earbuds that cost nearly $1,000. Imagine how much these handbags would cost.
They’re definitely not for me, but likely chances are people are willing to pay to see how far this company is willing to go with it’s madt creativity. Whoever thought we’d see the time that a handbag would be an extension of the smartfone?
