VIDEO: Animals made of Louis Vuitton small leather goods by Billie Achilleos

By  |  4 Comments

In other Louis Vuitton news, how do you turn a luxury goods company into something that appeals to moneyed children (like Suri Cruise and Angelina Jolie’s kids)? How about you make animals out of bags, pouches, bracelets, belts and other accessories? That should do the trick.

And that’s what Vuitton did. The French luxury house has collaborated with British artist Billie Achilleos to create animal sculptures (for lack of a better term) using only accessories that can be found in a Louis Vuitton maison. The first 20 creations were showcased last year to inaugurate the windows of Vuitton’s newly-opened New Bond Street maison.

A second wave of these little leather-and-coated-canvas critters – an armadillo, a beaver, a chameleon and a grasshopper, were made by Achilleos to celebrate the launch of Louis Vuitton’s Mon Monogram service for small leather goods.

“Each animal highlights an element in the design of the products. The Armadillo was to highlight the soft yet durable quality of the leather. The Chameleon displays the variety of colour. The Grasshopper is constructed from products with zips and poppers that make satisfying noises like that of the musically gifted insect.”

“And finally my favorite, the Beaver, who’s [sic] functionality chops wood, builds dams…and provides cleaver ways of organising ones life in men’s bags and wallets,” Achilleos commented on her personal blog.

      The beaver is too cute! But we love how you can tell that the armadillo is female, with volume lashes and gilt manicure.
