Louis Vuitton SLG Animals by Billie Achilleos

Louis Vuitton celebrated its 100th Anniversary of Small Leather Goods on the 3rd Oct during Paris Fashion Week. A total of 29 amazing looking animals made of Louis Vuitton small leather goods by Billie Achilleos, was displayed at the historical Deyrolle House. From the fluffy chipmunks to the colorful chameleon, these are simply breathtaking.

I've been avoiding to use the word 'cute' to describe something on my blog, but can I please say cute for this just once? Because they really are exceptionally cute. Now meet the Damier canines.

My last favorite batch is the colorful rooster and chameleon. They're so delicate and I want them as a pet! This was an amazing opportunity to showcase the savoir faire of the house in small leather goods-making as the UK artist turns Louis Vuitton bags and small leather goods into extraordinary animal sculptures.

Who knew Louis Vuitton would ever come up with these? What a brilliant concept to celebrate the 100th Anniversary, I have to admit.

So here's the story behind. The Famous Historical Deyrolle House in the heart of the 7th Paris District. Founded in 1831, the it is the famous taxidermist store in Paris based in an historical townhouse. On the first floor of the townhouse that once belonged to Samuel Bernard, son of King Louis XIV's personal banker, bizarre Louis Vuitton animals will sit alongside the finest taxidermy specimens and treasures of the famous Deyrolle collection.



Keeping alive the skills of a forgotten craft, Billie embodies the new generation of traditional artisans, forever inventing and creating, a culture that is shared by Louis Vuitton and Deyrolle.

  19. Mode des sacs Louis Vuitton sont souvent de grande taille, comme les sacoches, sacs polochons, etc Ils offrent un espace suffisant avec les serrures lourds, fermetures à glissière et sangles.
