   With the monogrammed menagerie......  
    The brain behind the animals used in all Louis Vuitton
     show-windows worldwide is 25year old Billie Achilleos
     who claims to be a professional 'Itsa Bitsa'
     she makes things-puppets-figures-animals-
     out of other things......
     She was 8years old, entertaining herself with characters
     made out of bin bags and leggings in the back of her
     mother's hair salon, she has a degree in sculpture and
     and technology and an armoury of specialised skills.



     These new critters was designed by Billie Achileos
      for the launch of the new Louis Vuitton monogram
      leather goods......

      
     The Armadillo is to highlight the soft yet durable 
      quality of the leather.
     The Chameleon displays a variety of colour.
      The Grasshopper is constructed from products
      with zips and poppers that make satisfying noises
      like that of a gifted insect.
      Finally the Beaver who's functionality chops wood,
      builds dams and provides clever ways of organising
      one's life in mens bags and wallets.......
