The artist Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton teamed-up together this past Friday to launch a highly anticipated collection featuring Kusama's iconic polka dot adorning every item of LV merchandise possible, in every colour and form imaginable, once again a decade after their first collab.
Yayoi Kusama is believed to be a true legend by people who value art and its many subsets. She is regarded as one of the most significant Japanese artists to have ever emerged by the media.
The brand has long tried to inspire thought-provoking debate by merging fashion and art. s2012 was LV's first collaboration with the renowned artist in ten years. The luxury brand and Kusama have reunited with another spectacular collection, picking up where they left off in their collaboration, but this time the story is much more advanced and amazing.
The polka dots symbolize infinity to Kusama. Even though it appears to be a continuous burst of colour on the surface, the artist carefully arranged each dot, producing a kaleidoscope of colour and pattern. The fashion luxury house and the artist both pay close attention to detail, which is another thing that stands out about the collection.
The designs of Louis Vuitton have a high resolution; they are sleek and fashionable, but when Kusama's creativity is incorporated, the tone is warmer and a playful element of fun is added. The unique vision of the artist seamlessly combines with LV's traditional cuts and tailoring, whether it be in the form of bags.
Launched on January 6th, the collection received many mixed reactions, yet this exclusive launch of mesmerizing sets of merchandise is tailored to perfection.
