Louis Vuitton’s creative director Marc Jacobs is going to collaborate with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama; following the footsteps of Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse.
The 82 year-old Kusama is best known for her obsession for polka dots, which will be appearing on a broad range of products, including leather goods, ready-to-wear, accessories, jewelry, shoes and watches.
I love it when artists collaborate with designers or fashion. It’s always fun and exciting to see what each individual artists taste and their take on “art” is about. I personally loved the Louis Vuitton collaboration with Murakami back in 2002. Kusama’s work is very fun, vibrant and kooky, I can’t help but be more and more intrigued by her work. Being an avid fan of polka dots, I simply can’t wait for this new collaboration.
This collaboration is expected to debut at Louis Vuitton stores in early July, along with special window installations.
