Traveling Curiosities by Louis Vuitton + Billie Achilleos

Women everywhere will be aghast when they discover what British artist Billie Achilleos has been up to lately – chopping up hundreds of designer handbags! French luxury brand Louis Vuitton partnered with Achilleos to deconstruct the bags, then reconstruct a mini-zoo out of their product.

Achilleos’ design behind each animal is very purposeful. For example, the chameleon in rainbow colors, Vuitton furs are added to certain animals where necessary, and the grasshopper contains many zippers and and poppers to imitate the sound that the animal would make.

The animals are currently part of an exhibit called “Traveling Curiosities” making its way through China. See some of the photos below!
