If you're wondering what's with the wonderfully crazy window displays in Louis Vuitton at the moment (if you've seen the polkadot tentacles you'll know what I mean) it turns out they're the work of Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. I was lucky enough to attend her exhibition at the MCA in Sydney back in 2009 and it was probably one of the most fun and interactive ...

I'm crushing on Vancouver-based studio Glasford & Walker big time.
