We love this collaboration!
Yayoi Kusama, is the most significant contemporary artists and writer from Japan. Her paintings, collages, soft sculptures, performance art and environmental installations all share an obsession with repetition, pattern, and accumulation. A precursor of the pop art, minimalist and feminist art movements. You probably all know this legendary Japanese artist but since her collaboration with Louis Vuitton you must know her. The famous dots are popping up everywhere.
Marc Jacobs met Kusama in Tokyo in 2006. Their relationship led to Louis Vuitton providing financial backing for a retrospective of her work at London’s Tate Modern museum earlier this year. Kusama’s signature dots will appear on everything from trench coats to pajamas and jewelry. Another assortment of products, combining Vuitton’s monogram leather goods and Kusama’s “nerves” design, will arrive in October. We can’t wait to see the collection in real life. And conveniently leave our credit cards at home. The entire collection is amazing right?!
