The collection 'Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton'

— 10 October 2012

13 foot Kusama statue at Selfridges London

In August 2012 Selfridges London launched an exciting UK exclusive and the largest store collaboration to date with Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton, taking over our legendary windows and Concept Store.

Louis Vuitton collaborated with the illustrious Japanese artist to create a collection of must-have handbags, ready-to-wear, travel bags, shoes and accessories featuring Kusama’s iconic bright, repetitive patterns. Selfridges London was the only place in the UK to house the exclusive second drop of the Kusama Monogram collection and marked the occasion with an unprecedented 24-window design by Yayoi Kusama.

Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton also transformed the ever-changing Concept Store with her signature giant pumpkins, setting the scene for a showcase of the collection.

To top this off, a giant statue of Kusama, measuring a mighty 13 foot tall and weighing in a half a tonne was installed to mark the exclusive collaboration.
