Artist Billie Achilleos Turns Louis Vuitton Bags Into Amazing Animal Sculptures

ANIMAL HOUSE

Deyrolle, known as the “strangest store in all of Paris,” hosted nearly 30 couture critters, each of which represented a different facet of the brand. The hardy armadillo, for instance, paid homage to the durability and quality of the leather, while the lively chameleon showed off Louis Vuitton’s wide spectrum of colors.

While we’re glad that Achilleos didn’t go for the obvious, it would be fun to see a butterfly made of Papillon bags or a cheetah cobbled from a Speedy or two. À la prochaine, as they say in France!

    Although these look amazing (!) how is this eco-friendly? There is not a CHANCE those are recycled bags. Plus making animals out of leather is definitely a statement.

    I agree this isn’t eco friendly at all. We don’t know how the bags are made but we most definitely know they’re not made from recycled materials and they’re all made from brand new bags.
