Louis Vuitton (under Marc Jacobs) is conducting another of its EPIC design collaborations!
The world’s most valuable luxury brand has partnered with Yayoi Kusama to create a collection of clothing and accessories adorned with the Japanese artist’s signature dots.
The spotty collection debuts in LV stores July 10th, coinciding with the Whitney Museum’s Kusama retrospective which opens July 12th.
Marc Jacobs recently discussed his partnership decision:
“Her energy is just endless. Through the painstaking sort of obsession in each of her canvasses and installations that she’s created, you see this world that never ends. I guess that’s what I admire and that’s what I respond to in terms of feeling for her and for her work… 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."
What do U think of the Kusama constructions (above & below)?
Deliciously dotty? Or too dizzying for your brainz?!
