Louis-Vuitton-x-Billie-Achilleos-2
To celebrate the opening of  the new Louis Vuitton flagship store in Sidney, Australia  British artist Billie Achilleo created a set of animals made entirely out of Vuitton handbags and accessories. The animals which are native to  Australia include a kangaroo, a koala bear and a crocodile;
It’s also not the first time the brand has collaborated with Achilleo on animal sculptures. She created an armadillo, a grasshopper, a chameleon and a beaver earlier this year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vuitton SLG Savoir Faire collection.

Tom Ford For H&M ?

With the recent success of the Versace collection Rumours have surfaced that H&M may have set their sights on another Designer collaboration with Tom Ford. H&M’s creative adviser Margareta van den Bosch tells Bloomberg Businessweek that Ford is “a very interesting name,” adding, “I can say, I wouldn’t mind [collaborating with him].” This goes without saying, though, as Ford’s ability to generate hype is basically impossible to overstate.
