Yayoi Kusama @ Selfridges&Co, London

Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama teamed up to create a collection of garments that feature Kusama’s polka dot style at Selfridges&Co in London.

Since 1977 Yayoi Kusama has volunteered to live in a psychiatric institution since 1977 after battling with her obsessions from a young age, but seeing her this big on the front entrance of Selfridges was pretty scary.

I liked the use of the he dots on the messages that had messages in English and Japanese using the gold Louis Vuitton.

I like the use of the red and the gold, but with so many of the statues of the artist it was a little strange.

The display also included some of her fashion clothing range for Louis Vuitton.

I liked this display, which looked so random and cool.

As can be seen the display included the famous Louis Vuitton pattern in the leggings below?

I liked what was done in the collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama.
