For the second time, Louis Vuitton has invited the preeminent Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama to a new creative encounter, reawakening, evolving and expanding on the pioneering initial exchange. From humble beginnings in rural Japan to internationally renowned artist, Kusama determinedly transformed her own life, spinning enchantment from the power of her art. Totally unclassifiable, she has emerged as the most influential living female artist today.
Launching in January 2023, the new Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama Collection will bring the artist’s emblematic motifs to the Maison’s creations. Ten years after a first collaboration, Yayoi Kusama’s symbolic objects, hypnotic motifs, and imaginings of infinity take over the Maison’s own emblems, creating magical objects that transcend time and space.
First revealed on the Cruise 2023 runway, this year’s collaboration brings not only the artist’s signature dots to the Monogram canvas, but also explores a wide range of recurring themes.
