Louis Vuitton Minaudière Coquille D’oeuf has fragmented eggshells on top

Louis Vuitton is back again with their Spring/Summer 2012 Leather Goods collection which signifies light and airy spiritual essence of soft shapes with sweet shades. The standout object of desire in this collection is surely the dainty Minaudière Coquille D’oeuf, having Monogram mosaic meticulously hand-pieced using only eggshell fragments. Crafted from 12,500 eggshell fragments with over 600 man hours put together using the 1920’s technique from the last man in Paris.

Price of this Minaudière Coquille D’oeuf is US$101,000 and rightly so because of the attention to the last detail in embedding the fragmented eggshells onto minaudiere. I’m sure demanding women will love to own one of these minaudière’s which is true testimony of care and craftsmanship.
