Louis Vuitton’s flagship and offices on 5th avenue completely covered with Yayoi Kusama design
during my stay in NYC for Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama various events, i’ve seen polka dots everywhere!
If we refer to Michel Pastoureau in his book The devil’s cloth, in western iconography, polka dots are always good instead of the stripes.
Polka dots almost expresses a certain solemnity or something magnificient and even sacred.
Polka dots is also feminity opposed to the stripes considered more masculine. The author said that « You rarely see a man wearing polka dotted underwears ».
An unpretentious review based upon the favorite theme of Yayoi Kusama.

And for men polka dots are allowed only on a (boring) tie…
or if you are less conventional, boldly wear the polka dots on a shirt. Meet this guy near Central Park.
