I could have sworn she moved slightly the instant I noticed her in the Louis Vuitton show window on avenue George V in Paris. But no, it wasn't really the atypical artist Yayoi-Kusama, nor a live sosie of her, but a wax-figure mannequin of the long-reigning queen of Japanese avant-garde. Kusama and Louis Vuitton have collaborated to launch a new line based on Kusama's fetish pattern, polka dots. The manga-style dotted wave decor, however, belies the prettiness of the new LV line. Click here to judge for yourself.
