I fell in love with polka-dot-obsessed artist Yayoi Kusama after the New York Times ran a story about her in 2008.
Today, Louis Vuitton confirmed Women’s Wear Daily’s November report that Vuitton’s artistic director, the often-naked Marc Jacobs, is collaborating with Kusama on products that include leather goods. They will be in stores in July (right on time for our anniversary, MrB!). Now I know how Apple fanatics feel when a new iPhone comes out. I’m ready to go stand outside a Louis Vuitton store for half a year to make sure I get my polka-dotted handbag first.
I’ve always have a weakness for Vuitton’s special collaborations. Here are two of my special Vuitton bags. As you can see, the dogs love them too.
This news makes me almost forgive Marc Jacobs for that SpongeBob tattoo of his. I said “almost”!
