Louis Vuitton has done it again. 10 years after he collaborated with Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami, Marc Jacobs has worked with eccentric, “dotty” Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. In New York, the windows of Louis Vuitton’s flagship store have gone spotty. Apparently Jacobs loves “the obsessive character and the innocence of her artworks”. Kusama was a major pre-pop art figure in 1960s, influencing Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, and she’s been putting polka dots on all kinds of unlikely objects, ever since. She’s 83 now, but still going strong, sporting her signature shock of red hair. Love her work.
