How pretty is this long wallet from the Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama collaboration! I am so excited!
As you know, I am fan of Yayoi Kusama’s artwork. I love her whimsical work with polka dots and her pop-art vibe. It is amazing how she expresses her inner feelings through pop-art. Normally pop-art, and the whole pop-art scene in the 1960s in general, was fun, but Kusama expressed really deep, troubled emotions and mental health issues through her art. It is a combination of the colorful pop-art of the 1960s and the inner depths of the classical artist. I feel honored to be able to have a small piece of her work, even if it is on a wallet. She truly is an icon of the art world.
The first collaboration Yayoi Kusama did with Louis Vuitton was roughly ten years ago, and at that time I invested in a small, polka dot handbag. This time around, I wanted more than just cute polka dots, I wanted something reflective of Kusama’s art itself, so I decided to invest in the Louis Vuitton Sarah Wallet. I don’t own a long wallet, and it seemed like both a practical item to purchase as well as large enough to showcase Yayoi Kusama’s collaboration with Louis Vuitton. Love!
If you haven’t checked out the collaboration yet, I highly recommend doing so! There are plenty of pumpkins to choose from, and if pumpkins aren’t your thing, there are several color combinations of Yayoi Kusama’s signature polka dots. I love the blue pieces and also the black with magenta. Of course, I already have a piece of her black and white polka dots from the first collaboration with Louis Vuitton.
I love how Louis Vuitton packaged the collaboration this time around. The polka dot ribbon is so pretty and the box is ideal for storage. I plan to keep all of the packaging because it makes the collaboration whole.

What do you think of the second collaboration between Louis Vuitton and Yayoi Kusama? Did you invest in any pieces the first time around, or this time?
Thanks for stopping by!
