Louis Vuitton Teaming with 'polka dot artist' Yayoi Kusama

Louis Vuitton has collaborated with Yayoi Kusama on a series of products including leather goods, ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes, watches and jewelry.

WWD reports the French fashion house's artistic director Marc Jacobs worked with the Japanese artist on the range, which hits Louis Vuitton boutiques early July.

Special window installations based on Kusama's unique aesthetic are also scheduled. The artist is best known for her interest in polka dots, which she has famously applied to tree trunks, entire rooms and even people.

The collaboration ties in with a major retrospective of Kusama's work which hits London's Tate Modern February 9, following spells in Rome, Madrid and Paris.
