Louis Vuitton: A Night at Deyrolle Paris
October 6, 2011
On Sunday our vans arrived in Paris and we set up an event for Louis Vuitton at the wonderful taxidermy store Deyrolle. The collection of 24 animals that have previously been on display at the New Bond Street Maison and the NY 5th Avenue Maison windows made an appearance along side the 4 animals Louis Vuitton commissioned for their recent press event. These all came together at the same location along with 2 dogs (never been seen before) and 3 new commissions that were produced especially for the event. Billie Achilleos, our artist, cleverly designed these 3 new animals based on the amazing array of animals Deyrolle have in the store and had the challenge of making these bigger than anything she’s previously produced. We dressed the 29 animals into the store and mixed them with their taxidermy family members making it a really fun installation that showcased these pieces of art as the curiosity shop wonders they were always intended to be. All in all the cocktail party seemed to be a huge success.
