LOUIS VUITTON TO COLLABORATE WITH YAYOI KUSAMA

At 83 years old, Yayoi Kusama has been considerably overlooked over the years. The quirky avant garde Japanese artist who has voluntarily made a psychiatric hospital her home for a number of years, is renowned for her almost obsessive use of polka dots in her work.
Kusama is a fascinating lady, well known for her eccentric nature, style, vision and love of brightly coloured wigs. So when Louis Vuitton anounced the collaboration with the artist after Marc Jacobs paid her a visit, we were intrigued.

The collaboration will be released tomorrow (10th July) in Louis Vuitton stores, and will also be available from a pop-up store in Selfridges London in August.The collaboration consists of Kusama-created patterns and polka dots on wallets, bags, scarves, clothing and beach wear.

And it looks as though Jacobs has big things planned for the collaboration. The collaboration is said to showcased around the globe in specially designed pop-up shops....

Versace kicked off the haute couture show at the Ritz Paris, the perfect setting for the capivating show. Versace's collection was fabulous; glamorous and sexy in true Versace style, with sorbet colours and attention to detail embellishment.
