Aaahhh... you ask for a topic and ... tada... again there is "Web 2.0". Twitter, Facebook, social media, ... there are more down to earth topics than this.
How about the possibilities and limitations of web-shops / websites for luxury brands?
More and more customers (at least within Europe) are starting to shop cross-border, especially in luxury fashion. Many of the current luxury fashion brands do not offer a direct way to shop, but rather rely on their brick-and-mortar stores.
For customers who are interested in the latest trends, but are not constantly jetting around the world (Paris, New York, London, ...), web-shops would be a possible solution.
Another thing: Websites. I will never understand designers who put up a website with a blurry video where no one can even remotely judge how the new collection looks like. After all, especially for the less known designers, this is their possibility to strengthen their revenue stream. So - how artistic should a designer website be, and how sales oriented?
I think that lots of luxury brands still don't get how to achieve a good balance between their exclusivity (just showing a white page with their company's logo on it) and sellability (opening up a full-blown online version of a flagship store).
Those are topics I would consider to be quite interesting.
