This Louis Vuitton Display Features Prehistoric Creatures

This extravagant Louis Vuitton display for its shop on 5th Avenue takes inspiration from the summer dinosaur exhibit at the Natural History Museum in Paris. For this luxurious display, the dinosaur bones have been covered in gold for an extra touch of decadence.

Each of the mannequins are playfully posed with the dinosaurs and styled wearing the Louis Vuiton Pre-Fall 2013 collection. One terrified mannequin is posed as if to cover its eyes, and justifiably so -- one of the dinosaurs is clutching a Vuitton purse in its jaws.

It is unusual to see dinosaur bones set up anywhere other than a museum and the juxtaposition of these creatures with fashionable items makes a clever statement on just how timeless Vuitton's fashions are.
