Next stop for the Billie Achilleos Exhibition: Honolulu. This August, Louis Vuitton Waikiki will host 8 imaginative creatures from Louis Vuitton’s Traveling Curiosities exhibition in the historic Gump building. The store will also debut a new addition, the “Honu”, or Hawaiian sea turtle. Each animal is pieced together with handbags, small leather goods, belts, wallets, and travel accessories made of Louis Vuitton’s distinct leathers and canvas.
Created especially for Hawaii, this sea turtle will sit perched on the upper floor, just as the legendary turtle goddess Kaiula watches over children on Hawaii’s beautiful sea shores. View all eight creatures at the Louis Vuitton Gump store’s upper floor salon, which will display these precious curiosities in a museum-like atmosphere from August 2 to August 31 2013.
