Yayoi Kusama

03 Aug

Yayoi Kusama’s obsession with dots was the starting point of the David Koma Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 Collection.

Some Yayoi Kusama-inspired collections and items or Yayoi Kusama’s collaborations : Lancôme (in 2010, Yayoi Kusama designed 6 « Juicy Tubes »), Louis Vuitton X Yayoi Kusama (« Dots Infinity » line, in collaboration with Yayoi Kusama, launched on July 10, 2012), Prabal Gurung Resort 2012 (this collection was influenced in part by Yayoi Kusama).

Other collections or items with dots : Carolina Herrera (since the 80s, polka dots have often been present in her collections), Christian Dior (in 1947, Christian Dior, who thought that the polka dots were « adorable, elegant and easy », asked Coudurier the exclusivity of the polka dot, a recurrent pattern in the Dior’s collections, especially from the late 40s to the 70s), Emanuel Ungaro Couture Spring/Summer 2004, Givenchy (the bicolor polka dot pattern is one of the signatures of the brand), Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2007 (the embroidered leather circles on the « Big Shopping Steamer Ligne Polka Dots Panama » bag evoked dots), Marc Jacobs Autumn/Winter 2011-2012, Marc Jacobs’ « Dot » (perfume, launched for summer 2012, in a polka dot bottle designed by Sayuri Shoji), Saint Laurent Rive Gauche Spring/Summer 2005, Valentino Couture Spring/Summer 2004.
