And rightly so.
Yayoi's use of organic shapes and rigid dots are infusing the often times staid LV pieces with a playful spirit. I appreciate that LV has allowed it's branding to take a bit of a backseat and is only represented with LV-initial brocade fabric and signature shapes.
It's a great pairing because there is just the right amount of fission between the two.
I love nearly every piece in the extensive collection - which includes clothes, outerwear, collars, jewelry, shoes, sunglasses and handbags - there is one huge thing that jumps out at me the most.
This whole collection is a knock-off dream.
These pieces are simple and classic, differentiated only by the association with Yayoi and subtle LV materials.
I fully anticipate seeing a HUGE number of look-a-likes come out in the next few months. From bow adorned heels to dotty-fabric sandals.
I hope that will not be the case. Yayoi is a remarkable artist who deserves to be respected for her career, not have her work, even that used in a collaboration, stolen for a quick profit.
