Who needs the same old nautical stripes for summer when you can have dots? Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is slated for July 10, and it’s going to be the event of the season, and now it includes a series of 7 pop up shops! You’ll be seeing spots this season, guaranteed. In conjunction with the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama launch, a Kusama retrospective will be held (starting July 12) at New York’s Whitney Museum. Kusama, who’s 82 and has been painting since she was 10, is currently living in a mental hospital upon her own volition. With madness comes genius, though, right? From trenches to purses, silk pajamas and jewelry, from New York to Tokyo to Paris and London, each open for between four to eight weeks. The Kusama x Vuitton collaboration will extend to over 400 stores, including an iPhone app, a website and a book.
