Take a Closer Look at Louis Vuitton's Collaboration With Yayoi Kusama

Each dot has been personally overseen by Kusama herself.

Louis Vuitton has continued its longstanding relationship with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, which first began in 2012.

Following a teaser released back in May, the luxury label merges its signature objects with Kusama’s well-known colors and motifs to create a collection of bags and accessories. The collaboration began with Kusama’s hand-painted iteration of the classic LV trunk, adorned with the artist’s characteristic polka dots, followed by an experiential city takeover in Tokyo. Fans recently got a glimpse of the pair’s previous works at Art Basel Miami, where Louis Vuitton showcased a handful of its most iconic collaborations.

The collaboration comprises ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, luggage, trunks and fragrances, set to launch in two distinct parts. The first drop is set to feature Kusama’s “Painted Dots,” “Metal Dots,” “Infinity Dots” and “Psychedelic Flower” collections, with a second drop due to launch a few months later. The application of every dot on each piece has been personally overseen by Kusama, alongside many of the objects that make up the partnership, with a distinct focus on precision and detail.

The dynamic partnership is set to be celebrated through additional store window displays, anamorphic billboards and pop-up stores, alongside AR experiences and an XR game.

Drop 1 will launch in China and Japan on January 1, followed by the rest of the world on January 6. Drop 2 will be available in Louis Vuitton stores starting March 31 2023.
