We’ve long been obsessed with the life and art of Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has obsessively made polka dot art for the last forty years. It seems Louis Vuitton shares our interest — and has released images of its collection inspired by Kusama.
Sadly, the collection is only available in a few choice spots — it pops up in Louis Vuitton’s NYC store starting tomorrow, and can also be found at Printemps flagship in Paris and Selfridges in London.
A second collection of Kusama-inspired pieces, based on her “nerves” work, will be out this fall.
Our favorite look might be the clear polka-dotted raincoats. What about you? [Fashion Indie]
Hey! Guess what? Pink is too edgy for a bra in a video message to announce her forthcoming album The Truth About Love. Duct tape X’s are more her style. Hey! Quit looking at her nipples and look at her lovely face, would you? And yeah, buy her new album. It’s out September 18. We’ve rounded up a few more celebs who’ve done the duct tape on nipple thing.

Tie-dye. Doesn’t it just conjure up hippies playing hacky sack and the pungent odor of Patchouli? Tie-dye gets a (deservably) bad rap, but you don’t have to wear hemp chords and Birkenstocks to get down with tie-dye gear. In fact, there’s lots of totally adult, respectable and cute ways to wear it. We promise!
After the jump, 10 tie-dye pieces you can say “peace” to.
Do you ever pause before putting in your mouth guard and slipping into your oversize Sugar Ray concert T-shirt and think, “Maybe I need to add some old-fashioned sultriness to my bedtime routine?” Don’t worry–Life magazine has got you covered. In a 1937 issue, they published a photo spread to teach wives how to undress in front of their husbands, featuring ex-burlesque dancer June St. Clair.

Honestly, high-waisted shorts are always probably going to be one of those things that girls love and dudes just don’t understand. But who cares? You look cute in them, and they’re a great way to hide some of that summertime pooch you might have put on (all those hot dogs and ice cream sandwiches can add up).
After the jump, 10 pairs of hot high-waisted pants!
Anthropologie is at it again, launching a new series of collaborative lines by designers like Mia Christopher and Dusen Dusen. This latest crop includes a new round of items from Karen Walker’s diffusion line Hi There. But for all the winners, there’s also a couple of losers — Swarm’s painted denim jackets look like something you’d find at your eccentric aunt’s garage sale. No thanks.
