Ode to Yayoi Kusama

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you've probably noticed that I have been bombarding my profile with my latest craze: Yayoi Kusama's collaboration with Louis Vuitton that is currently blessing the windows of Selfridges.

What I really liked about the display is that it represents Yayoi's love poem 'Love Forever' and is spread across 24 impressive, polka dot-inundated windows (see it in full on the Selfridges website). A mind-blowing experience.
It is an absolutely beautiful homage to love, complemented by impeccable gold Japanese typography, and showcases the designer's work in a way that will tease viewers to enter her dotted world.

I wasn't familiar with Yayoi's work of art before this display was constructed but I really enjoyed the visual feast. Her style is incomparable, immaculate and unique. To those who wander around central London, I would highly recommend you pay it a visit!
