Louis Vuitton knows what side its bread is buttered on. The brand may make gorgeous full lines of ready-to-wear, outwear and shoes, but when it comes down to it, the make-or-break element of Vuitton's business is handbags and accessories, and nothing makes that clearer than the brand's seasonal ad campaigns. They're always chock full of yet-to-be-released bags, some of which also didn't appear on the runway, which means they're of particular interest to us.
Vuitton released its Spring 2017 campaign recently, which has lots of clear, up-close photos of the season's new accessories, including the buzzed-about Etui iPhone Case. The ads also feature longtime brand ambassadors Michelle Williams and Jennifer Connelly, as well as a handful of LV's favorite models.

Today’s Louis Vuitton show took place in the future home of the brand’s Place Vendôme flagship. Scheduled to open in 2017, the new store will combine two buildings, spanning the famous square and the Rue Saint-Honoré. Sitting on the boutique-to-be’s second floor this morning with those monumental views out the windows, there was no escaping the metaphor: As global as its reach is, Louis Vuitton is Paris.
So it was fitting that creative director Nicolas Ghesquière brought his collection home metaphorically, as well. His Cruise offering, presented in Rio de Janeiro last May, was a tribute to that city’s sportif seaside culture—colorful, loaded with print, and beachily body-baring. The orientation of his bold new Louis Vuitton collection is different. While it retained some of the tropes of the previous season—the daring cut-outs in particular—the results were more glam. Call it hot bourgeois. “I realize that I didn’t explore that much yet the sophistication and the more dressed-up part of Louis Vuitton,” he said afterward.
The sophistication he was speaking of comes down to the type of clothing he zeroed in on: tailoring, first and foremost. Ghesquière’s are not suits for office drones; with slices removed from the shoulders and capeleted open backs, they negotiated the territory between practicality and experimentation. As he settles in at Louis Vuitton (today’s venue seemed conceived at least in part to quash the ongoing rumors that he’s on his way out the door), Ghesquière is leaning more toward experimentation, if not the outright high-concept fashion of his earlier days. See the asymmetric draped jersey numbers with the hip and midriff cut-outs, some with 1980s-ish sprinkles of crystals and glitter; see also the series of long, sheer-yet-discreet dresses at the end.
Among all the soigné stuff, there were sweatshirts, a logo tee or two, and skinny lace pants with matching pelmet skirts; they’ll be the kinds of things cosmopolitan fashion types will be seen in next season at the shows. The press notes mentioned a fact little known even among Parisians that, before the Place Vendôme was known by its current name, it was called Place des Conquêtes. As conquests go, this show had an indisputable one in the form of its Petite Malle phone cases. As the models walked by with them gripped in their hands, all the wannabe It bags we’ve seen over the last month of shows suddenly felt a little passé. Look around, a woman can make do without a purse, but not without her cellphone.

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.
