Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama (first look)

4 Jun

Louis Vuitton has teamed up with Yayoi Kusama, a spunky 83-year-old Japanese artist known as the polka dot princess. Kusama is highly respected  as being a voice for the avant-garde. Her art is so sought after that in 2008 Christies New york sold a piece by her for $5.1 million, a record for a living female artist. Her polka-dotted collection named infinitely Kusama will appear on handbags, clothing and accessories this Summer (July 10th), so be ready to channel your inner Minnie Mouse!

The fashion industry has been buzzing about this collaboration for some time, and now the French fashion house has released  some photos of the collaborative collection.

Kusama’s work will also be featured in an exhibit at the Whitney Museum  in New York July 12th through September 30,2012. For more information click HERE.

My Marni Adventure

8 Mar

The day has  come!  Marni for H&M debuted today at select H&M stores across the country.  The wait for the fancy high-end Italian house’s affordable line is finally over. The collection included traditional Marni  bold printed blouses, flirty polka-dotted frocks, structured jackets as well as accessories — including a mix of chunky bracelets and necklaces. Only 3 stores in the LA area had the collection, so I chose an (indoor) mall location just in case I had to wait in a line long. I arrived at the mall at 9am ran up to H&M to find a wristband person(I read online they’d be giving wristbands out). I got my wristband with my designated “shopping time”10:45-11:00am on it. Every 15  minutes, they would let a group of 30 people in a barricaded area to shop. There was a guy with a megaphone screaming the time remaining. I just watched the frenzy for the next hour and 45 minutes until my group was let in.  I also watched in sadness as my beloved white flower necklace slowly disappeared off the shelves:( Finally they let my group in and I felt like I was on supermarket sweep…..my heart was racing. I Grabbed 7 pieces and ran to the dressing room with about 5 of my 15 minutes left to spare.  I fell in love with 2, a tribal top and a polka dot dress. Got in line bought my items and got the hell outta there,with a slight headache. On my drive home, I looked over at my H&M bag and envisioned myself on vacation in these super cute clothes. Thanks H&M!!!! Until next time………rumor has it a HUGE designer collaboration is up next ….. like Tom Ford huge;)

Here are some pics from my adventure today.
