Spots will be sprouting across the globe this summer as Louis Vuitton rolls out seven pop-up shops to mark its capsule collection with Japanese avant-garde artist Yayoi Kusama
The first shop is set to open inside the Louis Vuitton boutique in New York on July 10.
The next shops will then spring up in Asia, at Pacific Place in Hong Kong, Ngee Ann City in Singapore, and Isetan’s Shinjuku branch in Tokyo.
Following those launches, Tokyo, the city Kusama calls home, will get a second location in Dover Street Market in Ginza. Then the two largest Kusama concept stores will open at two department stores: an 860-square-feet shop in Printemps in Paris on August 23; and a 1,375-square-feet boutique in Selfridges in London on August 24.
The pop-up outlets will be open for one to two months, offering a range of spotted trench coats, handbags, and other accessories created with the artist for Louis Vuitton
Louis Vuitton has also recently partnered with three other artists — Stephen Sprouse, Takashi Murakami, and Richard Prince - though not on the same scale as with Yayoi Kusama. Marc Jacobs, it seems, has taken a special liking to Yayoi's work.
