Louis Vuitton - Animania Collection

As always I'm just that little bit behind the times (shrugs nonchalantly) but even though they've been on sale for a week - after hitting UK stores on 14th Jan - they're so pretty that I don’t really care. This inspired new range is comprised of super-cute squirrel, rooster, rabbit and dove shaped monogram leather coin purses, clutch bags, key rings and printed scarves. As prices start around £200 I doubt I’ll be inheriting one any time soon so what can I do but recommend them…

I’m lead to believe that the Animania collection is inspired by the brands own heritage. Nearly a hundred years ago the Vuitton family made little wooden toys, examples of which were found in the Maison's archives. Reneé Vuitton, Gaston Louis Vuitton's wife apparently loved to collect the wooden toys and years later (in 1954) Gaston honored her hobby by dedicating an entire floor a new Avenue Marceau store to the vast collection.
