Marc Jacobs will continue his series of artist collaborations by working with Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist known for her whimsical dot motif.

On Tuesday, two days before a retrospective of Kusama's work opens at the Whitney Museum in New York, Louis Vuitton will deliver a collection informed by her signature decoration to its stores in the United States. It will be in stores around the world on July 19. Kusama's signature dots will appear on everything from trench coats to pajamas and jewelry. Another assortment of products, combining Vuitton's monogram leather goods and Kusama's "nerves" design, will arrive in October.

Jacobs met Kusama in Tokyo in 2006. Their relationship led to Louis Vuitton providing financial backing for a retrospective of her work at London's Tate Modern museum earlier this year. Jacobs called the collaboration an extension of that support.

"Her energy is just endless," Jacobs said. "For many people who don't look at art or go to galleries, or maybe they're not aware of Kusama's work, there will be a new venue, a new place to see this work and to come to appreciate it through the eyes of Louis Vuitton."

The last time Jacobs worked with an artist for Louis Vuitton was his collaboration with Takashi Murakami in 2003. He also worked with Stephen Sprouse in 2001.

Kusama's influence can already be seen in Jacobs's work — his newest fragrance, after all, is called Dot. Take a look at his collaboration with Kusama — and Kusama's own work — here in the gallery.
