Seeing Spots: Louis Vuitton & Yayoi Kusama

Three years ago, Yayoi Kusama’s polka-dots were wrapped around the trees along London’s South Bank as part of a Hayward Gallery exhibition. Now, the 83-year-old Japanese artist has been working in collaboration with Louis Vuitton to create a new polka-dot collection. That’s her (well a mannequin dressed as her) in the window. Love the quirkiness of it all and Yayoi herself has lead a very fascinating life. She even has a wheelchair covered in dots.

Here’s one of the Louis Vuitton windows in London. Hard to walk by them without looking twice!
