Louis Vuitton Yayoi Kusama Stores Pop Up Around the World
From Louis Vuitton’s flagship Manhattan store on Fifth Avenue to London’s Selfridges’ recent debut, Louis Vuitton has splashed Yayoi’s signature dots virtually everywhere. In total there will be seven Kusama for Louis Vuitton store collaborations launching in 2012 though, no doubt, the Selfridges’ opening was one of the most anticipated. The 83-year-old shows off her new collection in a special project space called the Concept Store which has been transformed with Kusama’s signature giant pumpkins and, yes, dots and dots everywhere. In an unprecedented move, Selfridges has devoted all of their 24 department store windows to one brand, and will run from August 24th to October 19th 2012.
