As part of its latest collaboration with Yayoi Kusama, Louis Vuitton is giving consumers the opportunity to transform any picture into a pattern that is inspired by the artist’s signature dots or waves. The iPhone app allows users to upload a photo and turn it into an artistic visual graphic. The altered image can then be shared on the online gallery ‘Visions of the Kusama World’, or on Twitter and Facebook.

Kusama, and 83-year-old Japanese artist, is known for her bold and quirky prints often featuring waves of dots, large spots, and patterns inspired by pumpkins. Louis Vuitton’s Infinitely Kusama Collection features items including ready-to-wear fashion pieces, handbags, jewelry, shoes, scarves, and other accessories.
