Louis Vuitton has gone polka dot crazy with its latest fashion video in honor of Japanese pop artist Yayoi Kusama.
The dance clip sees bespotted models accessorized with the polka dot bags and apparel which comprise the French luxury label's team-up with Kusama. See it at http://youtu.be/c_FtspWyie0.
The brand unveiled the new team-up Tuesday, with key items including shoes, handbags, shirts, skirts and sunglasses. This coincides with New York's Whitney Museum of American Art's latest exhibition of Kusama's work, which runs July 12 - September 30.
The collection's theme is bold, graphic polka dots displayed in an array of sizes and colors, emphasizing the artist's signature style -- she has famously applied dots to tree trunks, entire rooms and even people.
Louis Vuitton's artistic director Marc Jacobs worked with the Japanese artist on the range. He has collaborated with contemporary artists such as Richard Prince and Takashi Murakami in the past, and in 2009 a range inspired by the late Stephen Sprouse's motifs such as graffiti prints and roses coincided with a retrospective of the designer and artist at New York gallery Deitch Projects.
Louis Vuitton isn't the only French fashion house with close links to the art world: during last year's Art Basel Miami Beach fair Christian Dior unveiled an accessories line in partnership with German contemporary artist Anselm Reyle which included wallets and leather handbags in Reyle's trademark camouflage patterns.
