High Fashion Art

Grasshopper sculpture by British artist Billie Achilleos created out of pieces from the  Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection

Young British artist Billie Achilleos was commissioned by Louis Vuitton to create a series of these creatures out of their accessories for the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection. Joining the above sculpture of a grasshopper are a beaver, armadillo and chameleon - pretty phenomenal work. Though, if you were to do this after purchasing all the materials, I would be forced to call you an idiot or perhaps you simply have too much money and need an outlet to waste it on – in which case, I would encourage you to waste it on me!

View this video if you want to see the artist at work and a quick glimpse at the grasshopper's comrades.
