If you are a fan of the now-infamous striking dotted motifs, the Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton collection is a must-see preview. The collaboration between the acclaimed Japanese artist and the luxury fashion house is set to launch October 2012.

Although this is only a sneak peek into the collection, it will undoubtedly be filled with Kusama’s characteristically vibrant and graphic patterns. The collaboration will result in two series of works: one focused on LV’s luxury attire and another on its iconic monogrammed bags. Harlequin heels, dynamic day dresses and statement-worthy trench coats are just some of the items ready to hit stores. The Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton monogrammed bags will focus more on the artist’s illustrative sketches.

Kusama will join the ranks of Takashi Murakami and Stephen Sprouse as Louis Vuitton continues to work with evocative artists and designers. Stats for Dotted Designer Collaborations (UPDATE) Trending: Older & Buzzing
