Louis Vuitton put screens on their iconic bags because why not

Literally seeing the future

Published

on

Not the type to shy away from all things extra, Louis Vuitton has decided that the future of fashion entails screens on designer bags.

Unveiled at the Cruise 2020 collection show held at JFK’s TWA Flight Center last week, the prototypes aptly titled “Canvass of the Future” featured flexible screens on classic LV bags.

Two bags were shown off on the runway with flashing screens — the ultimate high-tech arm candy.

Now, dear reader, if you’re an avid follower of the folding screen trend, you’d know that this isn’t the first time we’re seeing those screens on a purse. Early this year at CES, we saw this purse from Royale — the same brand responsible for the very first functioning folding smartphone.

It comes as no surprise then that the same screens are used on the Louis Vuitton bags.

Here’s a closer look at the two-paneled Speedy in all its AMOLED screen glory.

As of now, there is no news on other functionalities, although some on social media have claimed that there are touchscreen capabilities on the bags. Pricing also hasn’t been unveiled although you can bet your bottom dollar it won’t be cheap as LV bags and flexy screens, on their own, can both fetch a pretty penny individually.

CRUISE 2020 by @nicolasghesquiere Here are the other bags from the show. The Skyscraper bags are cute. Also, here’s the other *touchscreen* bag. One in the front, on in the back. So it’s pretty much just 2 iPads glued on to a Bent Box it seems. Shout out to the girl @vickyyzzzz for pulling through ♥ ⁣• • •⁣ ⁣#louisvuitton #lvmen #louisvuittonlover #lv #monogram #dlouisv #luxury #highend #highendfashion #fashion #louisvuittonjapan #lvsingapore #louisvuittonmalaysia #ルイヴィトン #louisvuittonparis #louisvuittonbags #louisvuittonph #lv2019⁣ #lv2020 #lvcruise20 #lvcruise #nicolasghesquiere ⁣⁣ ⁣Prices and information are all subject to change and should be treated as estimates and guesses.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣Copyright © 2018 by LOUIS VUITTON⁣ ⁣All rights reserved.⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣We are not affiliated, associated, authorised, endorsed by, or in any way officially connected with Louis Vuitton Malletier, or any of its subsidiaries or its affiliates.

One thing is for sure, though: The future of handbags is bright — well, as bright as the AMOLED screens.

Blow & Dry: Handy, stylish hair dryers for easy blowouts

They deserve to be in your home and in your purse

Every now and then, we’ll need a quick blowout to maintain good hair — whether it’s prepping for an event, a quick touch-up before your Zoom call, or about to run an errand and in a bit of a time crunch.

It’s not every day we’ll need a fabulous blow-dryer that will cost us an arm or leg. Or purchase an expensive one and call it an investment. (Guilty as charged!)

Sometimes, what we need are hair dryers that work. Fast and easy, just the way you’ll like it.

Panasonic EH-NA27 Nanoe Hair Dryer

Carol, GadgetMatch’s Lifestyle Editor, swears by Panasonic’s lineup of Nanoe hair dryers. While her personal choices are a bit chic and ritzy, there are affordable options that certainly do the trick.

The Panasonic EH-Na27 brings in its patented technology, gathering water from the air, and uses it — along with negative ions — to create Nanoe droplets and Double Mineral Ions. It’s the secret to shiny and bouncy hair!

Mi Ionic Hair Dryer

If you’re looking for an affordable yet good-looking hair dryer, say no more. Xiaomi’s Mi Ionic hair dryer solves all your dilemmas: a portable form factor, minimalist and classy design (especially in that white colorway), high volume, and quick-drying technology.

Since it’s an ionic hairdryer, it’s supposedly safer and better compared to ceramic ones — and it won’t leave your hair smelling burnt.

Soocas H5/H3s Hair Dryer

Chay, GadgetMatch’s Creative Director, shared how her GadgetMatch in 2018 was not a phone but a hair dryer. Yes, it was a Soocas hair dryer, which recently had a product refresh.

To Chay, the Soocas hairdryer ticks her three main considerations in looking for a hair dryer: price, power, and design. And more importantly, it doesn’t stop working from overheating despite having an affordable price tag.

Philips Drycare Advanced Hair Dryer HP8233/00

Philips has been around for years, and they certainly produce hair dryers within your reach. The Philips Drycare Advanced hair dryer comes with a professional power as if you have your own hairdresser.

It also comes with multiple temperature settings for less hair damage and a long-lasting look. And more importantly, it sports technology that has an anti-frizz effect to help you achieve that shiny-looking hair.

Imarflex Hair Dryer HD-2210C

If you prefer it classic and generic like any hair dryers found in your mom’s closet, Imarflex retained that familiar look with its hair dryers. The HD-2210C comes with Ionic haircare system and easy toggle between hot and cold temperature settings.

It makes for the perfect hair dryer for a quick and easy blowout, especially when you’re in a hurry. And it certainly won’t break your wallet.
