THE ART OF THE FOLD | LV ORIGAMI | 2 0 1 5
A deconstructed Louis Vuitton Wallet, reimagined and repurposed into the style of a Japanese origami crane. Hand sewn, studded, and bound, this piece is comprised of the classic monogrammed canvas, the rich cognac interior leather, and antiquated brass pin heads. This piece celebrates the quality and longevity of the Louis Vuitton name and product line, taking the very fragile, temporary art form of origami, and infusing it with longevity through the use of the finest LV materials.
This crane marks the beginning of a series of Louis Vuitton origami pieces. Sculptures to come include a sailboat, a tulip, a traditional fan, and a paper airplane, all constructed with the LV mongrammed canvas and leather.
