Hooked: Yayoi Kusama Pumpkin Minaudière for Louis Vuitton

Among the dotted delirium that is Marc Jacobs’ collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton—think apparel, accessories, jewelry, even a chess set—who could have spotted this coming? In case it isn’t immediately clear what you’re looking at, let us explain. It’s a minaudière in the shape of a pumpkin, covered with the artist’s dots, and made from resin, metal and pure gold. Only five of the hefty jewel bags have been produced, handcrafted by Louis Vuitton artisans and billed as the showstopper of the collaboration, which it so obviously is. 

£83,500 by special order at Selfridges, London
