Exciting bag animals: sculptures from famous Louis Vuitton wallets

Celebrating the launch of the My Monogram service on Small Leather Goods, Louis Vuitton hosted a party at famous Paris taxidermy store Deyrolle. The place was populated with small cute creatures sculpted from the Louis Vuitton wallets, coin pouches, belts, and bag hardware.

These new critters were designed by British Artist Billie Achilleos. Each animal highlights an element in the design of the Vuitton 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, the Beaver, who’s functionality chops wood, builds dams…and provides cleaver ways of organising ones life in men’s bags and wallets.
