Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama are collaborating on a fashion line! Louis Vuitton's artistic director Marc Jacobs will soon be working with the 82-year-old Japanese artist on a fashion accessories series including leather goods, shoes, jewelry and more.
According to MTV Style, Jacobs has always loved Kusama's work, which typically centers on polka dot themes (see gallery). However, this collaboration is not the first for the Louis Vuitton brand. Jacobs joined forces with artist and designer Stephen Sprouse in 2001 on a line of Louis Vuitton handbags featuring graffiti. Then, in 2002, Jacobs teamed up with Takashi Murakami, another well-known Japanese artist, to create a line of white Louis Vuitton bags featuring multi-colored LV logos all over -- you remember the ones!
The new fashion accessories line from the Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama will be hitting stores this July.
