On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, Nicolas Ghesquière unveiled an eclectic collection for Louis Vuitton’s spring-summer 2017 runway presentation. The designer opened with a selection of loose-fitting dresses with sashes tied at the side. Then he played off the suit jacket and pants, showcasing sleeveless numbers and oversized shapes. There was also lace in the form of slip dresses and separates with zipper details for some edge. Elsewhere, Ghesquière introduced grunge vibes featuring graphic t-shirts and plaid. The final section went in a more feminine direction including sheer gowns featuring sparkling embellishments. Tying it all together were the shoes and accessories. iPhone cases featured the Louis Vuitton monogram while bags got graphic with checkered prints. Finishing the look were calf-length boots in matte metallics with pointed toes and semi-blocked heels.

Louis Vuitton 2017 Petite Malle iPhone Cases

Louis Vuitton

lv phone case 

In 2014, Louis Vuitton debuted the still-coveted Petite Malle, a mini bag that resembles a classic, luxury trunk and nods to the brand’s history in trunkmaking.


And today, the fashion house introduced an even smaller version to the world: the Petite Malle phone case. It made its debut on the runway during Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear show at Paris Fashion Week. As seen on Teen Vogue’s Instagram story, shown to us by up-and-coming runway model Theresa Hayes, the seriously chic cell phone holder looks exactly like a tiny Petite Malle bag — complete with the structured, accented trim and metallic hinges — and it can even be carried like one, too. The case has a carrying strap and key ring attachment, so you can wear it just like you would your most sophisticated purses.


It’s been an uphill battle successfully selling the notion of wearable tech to a luxury shopper—but if there’s anything that could make the notion seductive, it might just be a Petite Malle iPhone case. While it’s not “wearable tech” in the truest sense of the word, this snap shared by Nicolas Ghesquière has whet our appetites for what might come down the house’s Spring catwalk tomorrow.

In it, the designer holds a phone kitted out in what looks to be a case modeled after the house’s much-coveted Petite Malle. Debuted with Ghesquière’s inaugural Vuitton collection back in 2014, the purse style nods to the storied brand’s beginnings as a maker of luxury trunks and steamers. Whether this newest iteration of the tiny It bag is a one-off for Ghesquière, or a piece that will be shoppable come Spring 2017, we’ll wait with bated breath to see. Check back tomorrow to see the full Vuitton Spring 2017 collection.

Sure there were bags galore that came down the runway during Louis Vuitton’sSpring-Summer 2017 presentation in Paris held just yesterday. Some old, some new and if I might add now, some that are really pretty as well. But the one thing that enthralled everyone at the show and on social media has got to be these: Petite Malle iPhone cases that will come in most every colour under the sun by way of the exotic options, as well as others that come in the luxury house’s iconic monogram, from regular Monogram Canvas with black trim to the new Reverse Monogram. There’s even one in Black and White, which is love.

No word yet on their exact release dates or if they will come in iPhone7/iPhone7Plussizes, but I’m keeping my fingers (and toes) so crossed on this. One more thing before I sign off, you see the dangling luggage tag that hangs from each case? Look closely and you’ll see earbuds as well, which is a pretty swish way of storing them when they are not in use.

If you own one of the chicest phones (read iPhone) in the world, it is only legit to wrap it in a case that is equally luxe. Although each one of us are constantly clinging to our handy’s, the poor phone case is clearly an accessory that stays ignored. Rescuing this sinking fate of designer phone cases is artist Nicolas Ghesquiere, who recently created uber-fancy covers for the iPhone, as part of the LV Spring 2017 collection.

Taking inspiration from the brand’s petit Malle trunk bag (that immediately turned into a sensation post its 2014 release), Ghesquiere’s dapper covers are already garnering much attention. Apart from the iconic monogram version, the case will also be seen in a golden metallic, a blue and red crocodile print as well as in the brand’s signature Damier print. Further, it comes with four solid metallic corners, toggles and tiny studs. Functionally on track, the case also gives users an identical holder for the easily displaceable AirPods.

Hours before its ultimate debut at the Paris Fashion week, Ghesquiere was also seen teasing fans through a series of posts on Instagram. While the LV Malle bag retails for $5,200, not much is known as to the pricing of these luxury iPhone cases at this point. However, since we are all clamoring for the perfect hair, clothes and make up, why leave our iPhone from basking in some luxury of its own?

LOUIS VUITTON INTRODUCES NEW IMPERIAL SAFFRON PACKAGING

Louis Vuitton

Louis-Vuitton-Introduces-New-Packaging

It’s hard to say goodbye but do you believe in the old adage that sometimes goodbyes are the roads to new beginnings? Because we do believe so as in the case of Louis Vuitton now that it bid adieu to its chocolate brown packaging that we’ve been accustomed to for 13 years.

Louis-Vuitton-Introduces-New-Packaging-3

A packaging can either make or break a brand, especially if you’re talking about a high end one like Louis Vuitton, but the French fashion brand took a leap of faith when it finally decided to trade its dark chocolate brown packaging with a brighter and livelier shade. The new rage of packaging is named ‘Imperial Saffron’ and the distinctive color has been specially chosen to create a new visual signature, inspired by Louis Vuitton’s historical designs – think of the many iconic heritage pieces like the trunk which is known as ‘Citroën’ in the Louis Vuitton archives.

The ochre hue will now be featured on the brand’s shopping bags and boxes. And if that’s not enough to make you giggle, the cobalt-blue ribbons and bag handles will definitely complement its bright color. The combination of the two colors gives a modern and eternal look that reminiscent of the golden age of travel.

According to Louis Vuitton, the thicker paper and cotton ribbon handles will give you a greater resilience during transport, it’s also easier to fold and slipped into your suitcase or travel bag. And besides, the raw cotton and flat-pack boxes are part of the House’s focus on sustainability.

If you received the new packaging, let us know how you feel about it. Put your thoughts in the comment section below.
