Versions of two of Louis Vuitton’s monogram handbags with built-in flexible OLED digital screens were released earlier in 2020. The Canvas of the Future bags are constructed of PVC-coated canvas with a Louis Vuitton monogram design in brown and cream, with black patent leather on the sides, and have working video screens. According to Louis Vuitton, the pieces aim to blur the boundaries between your smartphone and bag – a “fusion of savoir-faire and innovation”.

LVMH, Richemont, and the Prada Group have joined together for the first time to develop the Aura Blockchain Consortium  (or Aura for short), a blockchain platform greater than Gucci x Balenciaga. Customers of these businesses will be able to track the origins of the luxury goods they buy through Aura, all the way down to the ingredients used to make them.

But what is a blockchain?

A blockchain is a secure, permanent, and public record of transactions. Blockchains, unlike the ledgers maintained and updated by traditional institutions, are widely considered as transparent since their data cannot be manipulated.

For Aura, the blockchain acts as a database of luxury products. In the same way that artworks are now linked to NFTs, each product will be given its own digital identification. Consider it a digital equivalent of the certificates that often accompany high-end watches.

Luxury brands will record the origins of their items on these digital certificates. The certificates in Louis Vuitton’s exhibit reveal the origins of the raw materials used in their products, as well as the factories where they were made and the store where they were eventually purchased. You’ll be able to determine what type of leather your Louis Vuitton purse is made of!

You’ve probably experienced the frustration of attempting to determine whether a designer purse offered on eBay, Carousell, or Vestiaire Collective is genuine. All of that uncertainty, as well as the pain of buying a copycat, will be eliminated with Aura.
