Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton - Path to infinity

In late May this year we were revealed the details of the new collaboration between the French Maison Louis Vouitton and Japanese pop artist Yayoi Kusama
The fashion brand has immersed itself in the infinite world of the iconic polka dots to give birth to an amazing (and controversial for LV bags' lovers) collection of garments and accessories inspired by the Japanese artist named Infinitely Kusama.
As pop artist, Yayoi Kusama has a very particular view of the world, influenced by the abstract expressionist movement, and exhibited in New York City during the 1960's alongside contemporary artists like Andy Warhol and George Segal.
Whether you like (or can afford) LV bags is another story.
But it's great that two art talents so different from each other in terms of vision, even age and background, got together and put their energy and passion of making work to create a dynamic, vibrant and animated collection.
