Yayoi Kusama on Display Downtown

In the heart of Padua, Louis Vuitton has brought the art of the famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Her world  consists of obsessive dots.

What I like about this window display is that there isn't a single bag or Vuitton product in the composition. Just Yayoi.

The company is trying to bring this art to a new public that might not otherwise see it. For more about this mission, watch this video.

  1. When I walked past the window display yesterday, I found new additions: Vuitton bags designed by Yayoi hanging in the display. Although I like the artist's design solution, I like the display better without the bags. It was more of a statement about the company's support of fine art than direct sales of their products. Oh well.
