Louis Vuitton, we’re not done yet.
Women’s Wear Daily reports that Louis Vuitton’s artistic director Marc Jacobs has collaborated with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama.
Expect a broad range of products, including leather goods, ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, watches and jewelry to debut in Vuitton boutiques in early July, along with special window installations.
Kusama, 82, is best known for her obsession with polka dots, which she has painted since age 10 and applied to canvases, tree trunks, entire rooms and even people. She has also done collages, soft sculptures and performance art.

The Kusama project is tied to a major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and then heading to the Tate Modern in London and Whitney Museum in New York.
A Vuitton spokeswoman described Jacobs as a longtime fan of Kusama, noting the American designer visited her studio in 2006 while on a trip to Japan.

Vuitton is a supporter of the Kusama exhibit at the Tate Modern, and plans to display some of her artwork inside its London flagship on New Bond Street, she noted.
However, it is understood Jacobs will not showcase any the collaborative designs on the runway during Paris Fashion Week on March 7.
