Louis Vuitton celebrates its collaboration with Japanese artist Yayoi Kuusamo, not only windows, but with the facade of its boutique on Fifth Avenue in New York. Ten floors of the building seemed to be surrounded by dozens of white 
black dots snakes.

The window installation put a smile on one’s face with its undulating inflatable tentacles done in red-and-white polka dots, plus a miniature of Kusama. But no merch — “That was the idea,” said Louis Vuitton chairman and chief executive officer Yves Carcelle of the conspicuous absence of bags in the windows. “When you work with an artist, it’s not a commercial operation. And as somebody once said, the window is the invitation but the store is the party.”
