Tech accessories present a huge opportunity for luxury brands, but even though we're a zillion generations into the iPhone's existence by now, none of the top-tier players have every gotten phone cases and accouterment exactly right. Brands tend to approach the pieces too rigidly, which means that most of the fun, quirky cases that consumers love are made by upstarts instead of luxury leather houses. With one of the pieces heavily featured on Louis Vuitton's Spring 2017 runway, though, that might be about to change.
There were a lot of exciting new bags in the show, including some very pretty full-leather pieces that should appease the logo-averse among us, but the thing I want to touch the most in person is the new iPhone case, modeled after the popular Petite Malle clutch. It looks as luxurious and detailed as any phone case I've ever seen, right down to the clochette that acts has an earbud-wrangler. The piece found its way into several models' hands, so I'm betting it (and hopefully a full line of equally luxe tech pieces) will be a big push for Vuitton come spring. Check out it and all the runway bags below!
