Yayoi Kusama’s dots

As you already know (workshopaholics are always up-to-date), Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama are teaming up to create a collection, launching on July 10 – with a second instalment landing in stores in October. The French fashion house first worked with the Japanese artist back in February, when it offered financial support for her retrospective at the Tate Modern.

Kusama and Louis Vuitton will also collaborate for the first time on several artworks, which will be showcased in the Louis Vuitton New Bond Street Maison’s dedicated exhibition space in London. “For many people who don’t look at art or go to galleries, or maybe they’re not aware of Kusama’s work, there will be a new venue, a new place to see this work and to come to appreciate it through the eyes of Louis Vuitton”, said Marc Jacobs.
