Louis Vuitton unites technology and tradition in new collection of connected bags

One of the defining characteristics of contemporary society is connectivity. Through electronic gadgets such as smartphones, computers and tablets, people spend more and more time surfing the world wide web or checking for social media updates.

This interest in the virtual world has already encountered a number of manifestations in the fashion industry, but few have been as bold as the new collection of purses that Louis Vuitton plans to launch in the second half of 2020. What makes these purses so special is that they have flexible screens and the ability to connect with the virtual world.

As announced by the CEO of the LVMH group, a conglomerate that controls the French brand, the stock exchange is confirmed among the new products, but its production will not be immediate. “The model was introduced in New York, but we’ll have to wait a bit for it to be in the stores,” said Arnault at Vivatech, one of the world’s most important technology events.

The handbags presented during the fair unite the tradition of Louis Vuitton, expressed through its iconic monogram, to the latest technology with the use of foldable screens that are already successful in the segment of cellular telephony. The launch of the French brand, no doubt, proves that connectivity has become an indispensable attribute of luxury goods today.
