To celebrate its collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, Louis Vuitton will open seven global pop-up shops dedicated to the collection. On July 10, the New York pop-up will arrive at the Louis Vuitton store in Soho, stocking everything from trenchcoats to silk pajamas, and for accessories, pendant necklaces to polka-dot purses.
And as expected, the pop-up itself will be nothing short of completely covered in dots, and according to the rendering above, it'll also feature Kusama's tentaclelike "nerves" motif. Click through for another image, though we can't promise it won't induce flashbacks of your childhood chickenpox.
