Louis Vuitton “petite maroquinerie” beautiful creatures by Billie Achilleos

I’m not much of a pet person but I wouldn’t mind having one of these luxury creatures in the house. According to WWD, London-based artist Billie Achilleos was commissioned by luxury house Louis Vuitton to create four “beautiful creatures” by layering pieces of “petite maroquinerie” (French for small leather goods). Achilleos fashioned an iguana, a bear, an aardvark and a caterpillar out of Louis Vuitton items, including wallets, coin purses, belts and handbag hardware. The designs were to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection. Who knew Louis Vuitton’s leather goods were so versatile and could make such cute pets?
