LV Yayoi Kusama pop up shop at Ngee Ann City.

I popped down to the 1-of-only-7-in-the-world pop up shops featuring the LV Yayoi Kusama range at Level 2 of Ngee Ann City this evening. A visually stunning shop concept that mixed the utterly and completely polka dot covered range with Yayoi's iconic work, this place was a photographer's (and blogger's) heaven. You should read more about the famous Yayoi's lifetime of revolutionary work here. Seeing her name alongside LV today becomes more interesting when you learn that at a point in her career, her artist friend Georgia O'Keeffe had to convince her own art dealer Edith Herbert to buy some of Yayoi's works so that Yayoi could survive the financial hardship that she was going through.
