Dots Infinity: Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton

Thursday, 7 June 2012

Yayoi Kusama is a very appreciated Japanese artist with a unique and unmistakable aesthetic that she has been perfectioning over the years: rythmic and repetitive, even hypnotic patterns. One of her favorite patterns to work with are dots, endless dots creating infinitely mirrored spaces. Louis Vuitton has always been supportive of great artists and after associating themselves with a retrospective of her work they felt inspired and decided to bring an homage to the artist through a collection inspired by her work - Dots Infinity. This association seems like a very natural thing to do after we've seen the brand's past collaborations with avant garde artists such as Stephen Sprouse or Takashi Murakami. The same lively colors and patterns are also present in this collection.

Marc Jacobs while talking about this special collaboration said that "It's really charming. It has the essence of the spirit of her work." The designer said that the LV monogram and Kusama's dots are "both timeless and endless". The collection will be available starting with two different dates: first of all the clothes will be launched on July 11 and then in October the leather goods will also become available.

Here are some outfits from the collection's lookbook:

And here are some real life shots for you to better picture the garments in the real world:

Curious to find out how the artist looks like? In my opinion she blends in perfectly with her work:

What do you think about this collaboration? Hot or not? I really like the playful spirit of the collection and the shapes. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing people wearing these garments on the street!
