A creative encounter. Louis Vuitton has invited avant-garde Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama for a second time, 10 years after a first groundbreaking creative partnership, evolving and expanding on the pioneering initial exchange, with a new collection revealed in January 2023. Louis Vuitton brings the Japanese artist’s emblematic motifs to the Maison’s creations.
An icon revisited. With a fun and arty twist, the Louis Vuitton Capucines is reimagined with Yayoi Kusama’s colorful polka dots. Enchanted forms. Covered in Yayoi Kusama’s signature infinity dots, the Louis Vuitton Alma showcases a pumpkin charm, a nod to one of the artist’s emblematic shapes.
The iconic Tokyo Tower takes on the artist’s colorful motifs, with an immersive AR Metaverse experience for visitors.
Vibrant tranquility. Fluttering to the ground like snow, Yayoi Kusama’s signature dots infuse Tokyo’s Zojoji Temple with the artist’s colorful universe.
