Fashion Alert: Louis Vuitton Taps Yayoi Kusama for Limited Collection
Louis Vuitton’s summer collection promises to be colorful and fun with news that the luxury brand has brought veteran artist Yayoi Kusama on board.
The 82-year-old is known for her placing polka dots in any color on just about anything, and word has it that LV’s limited collected will feature her various dot designs on everything under the brand including clothing, accessories, footwear, watches, and leather pieces.
Yayoi Kusama may be old but she’s still highly sought after in the fashion world. Audi used her polka dot designs to help celebrate their 100 year anniversary in an exhibit in Japan in 2010, and the unveiling of the Louis Vuitton collection will coincide with a retrospective of her work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris before she heads to the Tate London Gallery and the Whitney Museum in NYC. I’m sure her LV bags will be one of the most desired accessories this summer.
