Maroquinaris Zoologicae by Billie Achilleos


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.”)
