Renowned Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama has collaborated with French luxury house Louis Vuitton to release a fashion book titled Creating Infinity on September 26 for around ¥15,000.
Born in 1929 in Matsumoto, Kusama is one of the most popular artists in the world. She gained popularity after moving to New York and becoming part of the 1960s pop-art scene. At 94 years old, she is considered the most popular female artist alive.
The book starts with an introduction from Kusama and then discusses the artist’s career and influence. Iconic American fashion designer Marc Jacobs contributed to the book as he wrote about the origin of Louis Vuitton and Kusama’s partnership.
Other contributors to the book include, but are not limited to, curators Mika Yoshitake and Philip Larratt-Smith, Venezuelan musician Arca, as well as Fashion journalist Jo-Ann Furniss.
The book arrives in a circular box to reflect the artist’s signature style of using polka dots. It will be available online and in stores.
This is not Kusama’s first collaboration with Louis Vuitton. In January, the French brand released a major line using the artist’s iconic style.
