PARIS — If you’re seeing spots while out shopping later this summer, you may have stumbled upon one of seven Louis Vuitton pop-up stores in support of its fashion collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who never met a dot she didn’t like.
The first is slated to open inside the Vuitton boutique in New York’s SoHo on July 10, two days ahead of a major Kusama retrospective bowing at the Whitney Museum in New York. In the weeks that follow, three others are to open inside or near Vuitton stores in Hong Kong’s Pacific Place; at Ngee Ann City in Singapore, and at Isetan’s Shinjuku branch in Tokyo.
