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.
