Heart for Spots

Are you obsessed with Polka dots pattern? If you do then you’ll love this post. The luxury French brand Louis Vuitton collaborated with the very artistic and unique Japanese artist Yayoi Kusuma for their latest Summer 2012 collection featuring polka dots. Infused with vibrant color, modern clean sculpting, minimalistic details and playful polka dots in various sizes, the collection has a very 60s playful vibe. Her obsession with repetitive and rhythmic movements of polka dots pattern infused with color is included in all her work and sets her work apart from other designers.

Here is a video to help you understand more about the designer who is also called as “Princess of polka dots”.

According to WWD, the collection will include leather goods, clothing, accessories, shoes, watches and jewelry. Want a more affordable option? Below is a video from Refinery29 with step by step tutorial on how to make a cute DIY polka dots bag using acrylic paints for leather. 

Would you like to add a few polka dot pieces to your wardrobe?  Are you going to try making the DIY bag just like the one in the above video?  Would love to hear your views.

A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity.

    Yayoi is one of my most favorite pop artists! I have done a paper on her and saw her exhibition in Madrid (where I turned into a personal tour guide for my friends). I was so excited to hear about her fashion collaboration!
