Let the dot invasion begin! Marc Jacobs, American creative director of the French fashion house Louis Vuitton, has always had the instinctive knack of directing and predicting the biggest trends. And according to Jacobs, we are all going to be covered in polka dots next season. Just last month he unveiled his newest collaboration with contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whom many have compared to Andy Warhol. Together they designed handbags, shirts, skirts, sunglasses, and other accessories all featuring Kusama’s signature dots. The collection is absolutely adorable and is sure to be another major success for Jacobs.
Jacobs doesn’t just make designs for Louis Vuitton he also has his own namesake lines to work on. Working with Kusuma on the Louis Vuitton collection, however, must have something to do with all the spots popping up in his own designs, for instance on his latest perfume called Dot. Marc Jacobs perfume bottles are always unique and charming; they are a joy simply to display in one’s room. Fortunately, the fragrances themselves will make any girl feel pretty as well and this one is no exception. The scent is a combination of berries, coconut water, jasmine, orange blossom, and vanilla among other notes to create a scent just as charming and playful as the bottle, which is reminiscent of a ladybug.
