Maroquinaris Zoologicae by Billie Achilleos

February 6, 2012 by Stan | Celebrity Fashion

As animal lovers here at UV, we thought this would not only be appropriate, but absolutely fabulous to boot.

Louis Vuitton commissioned British artist Billie Achilleos to create a series of animals titled “Maroquinaris Zoologicae” using leather accessories to celebrate their 100th anniversary.

(As an accompanying music piece, I couldn’t help but think of Camille Saint-Saëns. Click the link to listen to the “Aquarium” movement from his masterpiece “Carnival of the Animals.”)
