Louis Vuitton has unveiled the second part of a collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who has reinvented the design of the brand’s fragrance collection. Hypebeast writes about it.
The capsule reflected Kusama’s love for flowers, faces, and pumpkins. Floral imagery is often found in her work, in paintings, sculptures, installations, and silkscreens. Now, the artist has taken this motif further by designing the iconic Louis Vuitton fragrance bottles.
For example, the Spell On You perfume with notes of violet, pink and iris, released several years ago, Kusama decorated with flowers and butterflies in peas (this pattern was found in the first part of the artist’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton). The Attrape-Rêves bottle features bright, smiling faces, and L’Immensité’s spicy amber scent features pumpkins in an unusual violet-blue hue. The latter print is also found on the canvas box of Boîte Chapeau Flaconnier – Monogram.
The second part of the collaboration will go on sale on March 31.
Earlier, Louis Vuitton presented an updated summer collection of Taigarama leather products. It traditionally included accessories made of Taiga cowhide. For the new season, they present a vibrant ’80s-inspired palette of neon yellow, green and white, and feature the signature monogram.
