Holiday in London – Louis Vuitton and Billie Archilleos

Billie Achilleos/Louis Vuitton collaboration with small leather goods displayed on New Bond St., London.

When we lived in London there was something unexplainably magical about the city during Christmas. There was a crisp feeling to the air and a pleasantness of attitude that could make even the stodgiest Scrooge break a smile. I remember, very vividly, getting off the train with my husband on the way back from an Oxford trip and there were carolers outside the station. It was one of those priceless movie moments. For some reason we decided to get off at Bond St. and walk to Oxford Circus, where we lived. We meandered after hearing the chimes of the carolers and stumbled through Marylebone Mews. There were lights streamed in zig zags from the roof tops and the store windows were lit up with the most beautiful collections to sell for the season. The most perfect part of it all was, the stores were closed. We had the windows all to ourselves. There was no one in the Mews but us.  The combination of the lights, the music, the fashion were all enchanting. My ears had been surrounded with bliss and now my eyes had the perfect complement.

As I sit here this Holiday season and reminisce of the jolly life in London, I have stumbled upon Fashion turned art work. In a coupling much like my eyes and ears magical moment. This year on New Bond St. the artist Billie Achilleos paired with Louis Vuitton to create animals out of leather goods. The worlds are truly intermixed. The artistry and fashion, does a marriage make.
