Connect the Dots with a Full Preview of Louis Vuitton's Kusama Collaboration
Jul 09, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
If you're seeing spots before your eyes, no need to worry about a stroke -- it's just Louis Vuitton's collaboration with Japanese artist and Whoville resident Yayoi Kusama. The collection pops up in SoHo tomorrow and in anticipation, the gods -- i.e. Marc Jacobs -- have granted a preview in its entirety.
Dots, drop-waists, more dots, some translucent trenchcoats covered in -- you guessed it, dots -- a little flesh here and there (is that a nipple or a dot?) and the house's bread and butter -- bags and other covetable accessories -- feature heavily in the lookbook. It's all visually-striking, a fitting tribute to the artist, but should those dots start to swirl and blur together you might want to pull the trigger on that stroke verdict.
