All Dotty: Louis Vuitton’s Yayoi Kusama Collaboration

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]

Expect to see spots aplenty in the very near future — Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama will be the subject of several pop-up shops around the globe this summer, but the avant-garde visionary won’t just be selling prints. Kusama has teamed up with none other than Louis Vuitton to create a capsule collection of clothing and accessories that are sure to captivate the fashion flock… if they haven’t already, that is.

Gisele Bundchen may have been the first to wear it on the cover of this month’s Vogue Brazil, but it was Kirsten Dunst who debuted a dress from the line last night at the opening of the new Vuitton boutique in Paris. I like the silhouette of the maxi, and the polka dots, but the overall effect is a little more hoedown-ready than anticipated. Then again, I wasn’t exactly a fan of Gisele’s look either, so perhaps this speckled collection just isn’t for me. Do you love Kirsten’s quirky gown, or do you think it’s best left to those also wearing cowboy boots?

I Want To Go To There: Louis Vuitton’s Custom Train

Remember the custom-built, $8 million train that rolled into the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter show at Paris Fashion Week a few months ago? It isn’t being put in storage just yet–in fact, it’s been reconstructed in a New York studio to serve as the backdrop for the collection’s ad campaign. Steven Meisel shot the ads, starring 10 female models decked out in uber glamorous travel wear, assisted by four male porters. Says designer Marc Jacobs: “We wanted to continue the journey we started with the fashion show,” including “the glamour of travel and the romance of going somewhere.” Wherever that train’s going, we’d love to catch a ride.

Most ads for luxury goods star one of many generically beautiful it girls of the moment, but Louis Vuitton’s Core Values campaign steers in a less likely direction by featuring exceptional celebrities recognized for much more than aesthetics. For the latest installment in the series, the French high-fashion house tapped legendary heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali. When one thinks “Louis Vuitton,” boxing is far from the first thing that springs to mind, but considering past stars of the campaign include Bono, Francis Ford Coppola, Sean Connery, and former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the brand certainly doesn’t restrict itself to a certain type of image. Ali’s ad, which shows his grandson alongside him in boxing gloves, will appear in magazines beginning June 15. [Vogue UK]

Marc Jacobs Rocks A Pink Polo Dress

Marc Jacobs attended the Louis Vuitton exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris last week wearing this semi-sheer knee-length pink polo dress. When I was 12, I had my own knee-length pink polo dress from Lands’ End (which was also semi-sheer, although it took me a year to realize it), and I can confidently say that Marc looks way better in his.

Marc Jacobs Sends A Real Live Locomotive Down The Runway At Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton is basically synonymous with luxury, so it’s no surprise that the brand goes all-out for its shows … especially with one Marc Jacobs at the helm. If you thought last season’s stunning life-size carousel was unbeatable, well, think again. As is fitting for a collection heavily influenced by “the golden age of rail travel,” Jacobs and team Vuitton truly outdid themselves with a custom-painted, LV-branded steam locomotive that transported the models out onto the runway. I can only daydream about the kinds of shows Marc would produce should he be tapped for la Maison Dior … [Fashionista]
