Louis Vuitton-imals

I am in complete awe of the Louis Vuitton goods used to create these custom critters. I’m pretty sure they are some of the most luxurious materials used to date. Billie Achilleos, an artist from the UK, designed them for the launch of Louis Vuitton’s Mon Monogram service for small leather goods. She designed each animal to highlight an element of Vuitton’s aesthetic.

The Armadillo emphasizes the soft yet durable quality leathers used.

The Chameleon displays the variety of select Vernis colors released every season. It wasn’t until 1998 that Louis Vuitton introduced color to his collections. They were only in grey and white.

The Beaver showcases a clever way of organizing one’s life using men’s bags and wallets.

I think this one is my favorite. The use of key rings for its claws is brilliant! I also love its gold tooth.
