Louis Vuitton‘s support for the arts truly knows no bounds. It is a brand that has also gone above and beyond many others to support the world of art since their founding in 1854 and still holds strong in 2012, as is evident with their latest announcement. Louis Vuitton have just released information regarding their latest collaboration with artist Yayoi Kusama, under the artistic direction of Marc Jacobs. The collection, which launches exclusively in New York tomorrow (July 10th 2012), has already been featured on numerous magazine covers causing a ripple of excitement among buyers around the world.
Louis Vuitton describes the collection in more detail:
The starting points for the collection were obsession and seriality. The iconic Louis Vuitton leather goods, ready-to-wear, shoes, accessories, watches and jewellery became the supports for Kusama’s organic repetitive patterns. Treated in vigorous and hybrid colours, the polka dots cover the products infinitely. All over, express the unlimited possibilities of playing with scales, colours and densities. When the “kusamesque” figure comes to life, the patterns ripple and lead the eye into a stroboscopic game.
For the artist, who sees her life as “a dot lost among millions of other dots”, this collaboration will allow her to spread her polka dots infinitely across the world and convey her message: “Love Forever”. “It enables her to increase her audience and that of contemporary art in general, concludes Marc Jacobs. The task Louis Vuitton has always set itself.”
Sounds positively magical and transforming. Sign us up for the lot. Now if we could only find a bank to rob on the way to the store. Kidding, kidding. Seriously, folks, if you are an investor in fashion this is one collection that simply cannot be missed.
