L'ARTISTE DE RENOM
LA MARQUE HAUT DE GAME
ET LA SOIREE NAVRANTE
ou comment alléger l'ambiance
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has designed a line of accessories for Louis Vuitton. She has not strayed far from her signature polka dot motif producing a very "marsupial" collection, which brings fun and happiness to the iconic bags and other LV accessories.
The 60's artist, a member of the Warhol "clan", who left the US to go back to a psychiatric hospital in Japan in the 70's, is now back in full force at the top of the art world and her very pop-art style is very much in demand.
Yayoi Kusama now dresses so as to blend in with her art.
Which brings me to this part of the line:
You are NOT going to believe this!
(I am in a "confessing-hideous-secrets-" kind of mood today...)
I once went to a costume party, (I was 15, and this was somewhere in Africa. That's my only possible excuse) dressed as Marsupilami, a cartoon marsupial popular in France at the time!
Needless to say, I hated every minute of the long dreary evening! I could not sit down because of the metal wire tail my father had fashioned for me and, of course, I was not exactly happy, I was so pathetically ugly!!! (BTW, my face was also made up to look like the darn animal, spots and all...)
My costume looked EXACTLY like the pieces above, and even if I was a huge Vuitton fan, which I most definitely am not, I would certainly not be buying THAT anytime soon...I know you understand.
How did I even begin to think that was going to be fun? Was I THAT ridiculously clueless? Was I even sane? Will I ever recover?
COSTUME PARTY RULE # ONE:
NEVER, EVER, go to a costume party after your 15th birthday in anything but a gorgeous and most definitely SEXY costume. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE!
There is no RULE # TWO...
Oh, and my sisters? they looked adorably, glamorously flirtatious as Josephine de Beauharnais and Scarlet O'Hara...
P.S.: my twin sister, who has been sworn to unconditional secrecy for years, is laughing to tears with this post. I hear her, all the way from Montreal!
And I am laughing also.
Now I feel all reenergized and I can go back to my packing, sorting, etc., etc.,.
