Defined by the use of bold polka dot patterns and motifs, the Japanese artist’s signature design element is showcased in fine form along with deeper insight into the background of her work, including her self-reflection that Kusama sees her life as “a dot lost among millions of other dots.” Her upcoming collection with the luxury Parisian fashion house called “Dots Infinity” is bursting with the colorful circles, and is slated for a July 10th launch at their stores world-wide. The collaboration includes a line-up of accessories, wallets, watches, and shoes, each inspired and influenced by the timeless artist.
