When Nicolas Ghesquière sent his first look down the runway for Louis Vuitton's spring 2016 collection on the final day of  Paris Fashion Week, the designer presented a brand new phone case that could very well rival the next "It" bag of the season.


The accessory is a tech-friendly version of Ghesquière's Petite Malle, an "It"-worthy handbag that the designer created for his debut runway show for the French fashion house back in 2014. It's a modernized and miniature version of Louis Vuitton's signature travel trunks.

The day before the show, Ghesquière gave his followers on Instagram a low-key sneak peek of the new accessory — emblazoned with a classic LV-logo motif and iconic hardware details. On the runway, there were plenty of reiterations, like gold and silver metallics, checkerboard patterns, as well as red and nude-colored crocodile leather. With so many options at the ready, we have a feeling Ghesquière is banking on the success of these cases for next season.

We reached out to the Louis Vuitton team for additional information and will update this post as we learn more. Though the brand's current offerings of phone cases go for between $295 and $445, we have a feeling these new styles will ring in at a much higher price; prices for the Petite Malle bag usually start at $5,500.
