So much crazy Yayoi Kusama genius between these Louis Vuitton covers The obsessive polka dots of contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama found their place in fashion when Marc Jacobs asked her to collaborate on a Louis Vuitton collection. They also created window installations for Louis Vuitton's Manhattan stores and Selfridges in London. There's even an app where you can "imagine yourself or your friends covered with dots." Yayoi Kusama, who's lived in a psychiatric hospital since admitting herself in 1977, was busy writing poems when Marc Jacobs approached her. In this exclusive mongraph for Louis Vuitton, she reveals previously unpublished documents, archival photographs and reproductions of original works. It's an in-depth look at the Yayoi Kusama's genius and insanity with contributions from well-known curators and authors. Check out a sneak peek of Louis Vuitton's Yayoi Kusama monograph book below and see it in person at Louis Vuitton stores.
