Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s spotty collaboration with Louis Vuitton is about to get seven dotty temporary homes. WWD reports that the French house is celebrating the partnership with pop-up boutiques placed around the world, the first of which will debut in New York’s SoHo on July 10. Outposts inside or near Vuitton stores at Hong Kong’s Pacific Place, Ngee Ann City in Singapore, the new Dover Street Market in Ginza, and Isetan’s Shinjuku branch in Tokyo are planned in the weeks that follow, and the launch will climax on August 23 and August 24 with large-scale installations at Printemps in Paris and Selfridges in London.
For those who can’t make it to these destinations, the pieces will also be sold at all of the brand’s 463 boutiques. Expect spot-covered silk pajamas, trenchcoats, necklaces, and bags. And come October 1, a second round of leathered accessories will drop, embossed with Kusama’s tentaclelike “nerves” motif.
