Yayoi Kusama x X-girl collection

Yayoi Kusama teams up with cult streetwear brand X-girl

The artist brings her trademark polkadots to a new collaboration with the label

Her Infinity Rooms are all over your Instagram feed, but now you can also expect to see them IRL – even if you aren’t lucky enough to be near one of her touring exhibitions – thanks to X-girl’s unexpected latest collab with iconic Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama

The collection features a t-shirt with an all-over print of one of said Infinity Rooms, as well as another with a film portrait of the artist herself, and other pieces covered with the her trademark polkadots.

Created by Kim Gordon in the 90s, X-girl was bought by a Japanese company in 1998 and has experienced of something of a revival of late. They’ve recently collaborated with Erin Magee’s MadeMe label – a collection which was modelled by Gordon’s daughter, Coco herself.

With a London retrospective of her work just last year, Yayoi’s extensive career has also had a resurgence of popularity in recent years – and this isn’t the first time the artist has made the crossover into fashion, famously adding her polkadot twist to the design codes of classic French house, Louis Vuitton.

Here, X-girl and Kusama put a new spin on their 90s grunge aesthetic, which was created for the girl wanting her clothes to be both cool and flattering – and we’re totally here for it.  

The Yayoi Kusama x X-girl collection will be available to shop here from 9 February 2017.
