Not only are the bags a gorgeous fashion accessory, they’ve been “upgraded” to works of art.

To commemorate the opening of a new flagship Louis Vuitton store in Sydney Australia, British artist, Billie Achilleo, created sculptures of animals entirely out of Louis Vuitton handbags and accessories.

The sculptures that were created mirrored the well-known Australian wildlife – the kangaroo, koala bear and crocodile.

Believe it or not, this is not the first time Louis Vuitton has been turned into an artwork by the talented Billie Achilleo. Earlier this year an armadillo, grasshopper, chameleon and beaver were created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Louis Vitton Savoir Faire Collection.

Most of us wouldn’t let any harm come to our Louis Vuitton handbags. But if they do get a bit worn at least now we know they’re recyclable.
