A LOT. So imagine the yelp of excitement that sprang from our lips when we heard that Louis Vuitton had created an entire zoo out of their designer arm candy.

The pop-up zoofeatures 23 animals, all of which were created using handbags and other small leather goodsbearing the brands distinctive check and LV monogram. Our favourite has to be the giant panda, which took two months and a whopping 74 bags to create.
