VIDEO: The Making of Those Louis Vuitton Armadillos & Grasshoppers

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

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.
