ANIMAL PLANET: Thanks to Billie Achilleos, a London-based self-described “versatile artist and maker of things,” fanatic collectors of all things Louis Vuitton may just have found a new use for their collections. The artist has been commissioned by Vuitton to create four beautiful “creatures” out of various “petite maroquinerie,” the French word for small leather goods. Wallets, coin purses, belts and hardware from bags were layered and assembled to resemble an iguana, a bear, an aardvark and a caterpillar in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection — better known as “know-how” with small leather goods. In addition, this September customers will be able to have items such as the Zippy wallet and organizer customized as part of the Mon Monogram program.
