Louis Vuitton: The Yayoi Kusama


I have never seen this many red and white polka dots in my entire life! Polka dots lined the walls of the Louis Vuitton store in Paris for the Yayoi Kusama collection which recently launched. It was like walking into an alternate universe that instantly made you smile!

At the age of 83, Yayoi Kusama's career as an avant-garde artist has spanned more than 50 years. Born to a Japanese family who owned a wholesale plants nursery, her love of polka dots started at an early age when she began having hallucinations of people with dots all over their bodies.


Polka dots have since become her signature design which has given her global recognition.


She teamed up with Louis Vuitton to create handbags, clothing and shoes incorporating her wacky style and keen eye for creativity.
