I love it when fashion and art collides, more so when the takeover is so intense, and you can’t get any more all-consuming than Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama bringing their monograms and dotty approach to life across 24 windows at Selfridges.
I knew it was coming but I still wasn’t prepared for the wow factor of seeing Louis Vuitton’s highly anticipated exclusive Kusama collection takeover Selfridges’ large windows on Oxford Street. If you haven’t been by to see, do, it is stunning, and take it from me walk from the Orchard Street end of Selfridges as you will be able to follow Kusama’s ‘Love Forever’ poem, which has inspired the display, in both English and Japanese.
If you aren’t familiar with the poem here it is, as well as a few snaps I took on my HTC One X of the windows – I truly wished I lived in a permanent polka dot world!!!
Stars, the earth, I and you: we are but one polka dot
To a shining future
All about my great happiness
Fashionably dressed up
Let’s go and see out boyfriends in high heels
I, in high heels
Also don’t forget to go inside as for eight weeks Selfridge’s Concept Store is full of polka dots as the Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama collection full of accessories that Minnie Mouse would love to buy are exclusive to Selfridges!!!
