First look at Yayoi Kusama x Louis Vuitton
Posted on

Melvin Mojica gave me the latest W magazine with Tom Cruise on the cover

Inside: a six-page spread on the art and times of celebrated artist, Yayoi Kusama, who will unveil her collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Expect to see ready-to-wear, handbags, accessories, shoes, watches, jewelry, and special window displays in early July.
This early, W mag gives us a glimpse of what to expect in the handbag department.
Looks like a Papillon and a Lockit


Can’t wait to see the other pieces, if they are worth coveting.
According to a Louis Vuitton fan on the Purseblog forum, “I was told by the manager at my LV that although this collab is under tight wraps, there will be two releases and the first release (July) will be the higher-end bags and ready to wear. These will be more intense, as pictured in W Magazine.
“The second release will be sometime around October and will feature more traditional collab items such as the Neverfull, Keepall, and probably a Speedy. These will be more wearable, similar to the graffiti line. There will be monogram.” (Source)

What are you thoughts on these two pieces? Yay or Nay?
