Shoe and jewelry designer Diana Broussard released a line of high-tech handbags that feature personalized LCD screens. While many designers are experimenting with tech-infused fashion, accessories have received fewer technological upgrades. These unique handbags demonstrate how new technology can be used to personalize accessories.
The new 'TechLuxe' collection consists of resin-coated handbags, which are equipped with LCD screens. The unique accessory demonstrates how classic designs can be combined with new technology to provide the opportunity for customization. The bags can either play Broussard's custom video or a video of the consumer's choice. The ability to display custom graphics allows the user to show off their own personal style in a unique way. As Broussard explains, "the design adds a new dimension to self expression by introducing motion to fashion with videos."
