Louis Vuitton Bags, Scarves, Shoes, and… Creatures?

19 Apr

Louis Vuitton had artist and self proclaimed “maker of things” (catchy job title right?) Billie Achilleos to create animal art out of their small leather goods including wallets, coin purses, purse hardware, belts, etc. He was corralled for the odd mission in order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection. Creatures included were armadillo, beaver, chameleon, and wait for it… grasshopper!

I dunno about you, but I think they would make the perfect pet. 😉

This isn’t the first time Billie Achilleos and Louis Vuitton have collaborated. He is becoming quite the expert on expensive taste transformed to animal. In 2010 he did a similar exhibition for LV’s New Bond Street Maison. In which the creatures were encased in glass domes. The frog is my fave.
