Marc Jacobs, the creative director of the Parisian fashion house Louis Vuitton, has occasionally collaborated with famous artists. Initially, he collaborated with Stephen Sprouse (2001 to 2009) and then with Takashi Murakami (2003 to present) and Richard Prince (2008). This time, he chooses the 82-year-old Japanese multimedia artist and celebrated feminist, Yayoi Kusama, on a line of products for Louis Vuitton mainly targeted for the japanese market. Yayoi Kusama, known most notably for her obsession with polka dots, is considered one of the most significant and influential artists working today and she will present a limited edition collection of Louis Vuitton products including leather goods, ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, watches and jewelry set for debut in july 2012 under the name “Infinitely Kusama“.

More information about this cooperation can be found in “Infinitely Kusama” website, which is dedicated to Yayoi Kusama and the upcoming collection.
