Louis Vuitton Yayoi Kusama 2nd Collection
Marc Jacobs‘ admiration for eccentric Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is well known. A passionate art collector, the designer was already a fan of her paintings, sculptures and “obsessive character” at the time of their meeting in 2006. For the second half of their collection, luxury house Louis Vuitton and the avant-garde polka-dot enthusiast will be releasing another round of pumpkin-inspired products. More exhibition than commercial project, the second release of the partnership’s wares will also include the display of a two-meter-tall pumpkin, as well as a spotted array of bags, shoes and apparel. The frenzied collection release/exhibition will commence on August 23 and continue until September 1 at the Louis Vuitton Matsuya Ginza location in Tokyo.
