To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection, Bristish Artist Billie Achilleos collaborated with with LV to create this stunning series “Maroquinaris Zoologicae” which turns Louis Vuitton bags into amazing animal sculptures. Louis Vuitton wallets, purses, belts, and accessories were all transformed into a miniature zoo of small mammals, birds, reptiles, crustaceans, and even insects. Each animal highlights an element in the design of the products, such as soft yet durable quality of the leather or variety of color. What Achilleos was able to do with leather goods is amazing (not to mention amazingly adorable), and we’ve got more pictures of her creatures, plus a video of the construction process, after the jump.
