For the launch of the My Monogram service on Small Leather Goods, Louis Vuitton asked British Artist Billie Achilleos to work on 4 animals made of Louis Vuitton Small Leather Goods.
Enter the creative process and go behind the scenes of the project.
Louis Vuitton wallets, purses, belts, and accessories were all transformed into a miniature zoo of small mammals, birds, reptiles, crustaceans, and even insects.
The 30-piece collection, first debuted at the famous Parisian taxidermy store Deyrolle back in October, made a second appearance as part of the holiday display in Louis Vuitton Omotesando, and will be on a world tour again in the new year.
“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 functionality chops wood, builds dams…and provides cleaver ways of organising ones life in men’s bags and wallets.”
