Yesterday, we showed you shots from Tokyo of Louis Vuitton's monogram grasshopper and leather armadillo. Today, Teen Vogue has a sneak peek behind-the-scenes at the making-of with designer Billie Achilleos. We were worried that the video would show the butchering and horrific dismemberment of Vuitton bags, but, surprisingly, very few handbags were harmed in the making of this video (and fabulous exhibit). Check it out, above.
