Occupy Deluxe Tentacles at Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton currently has an awesomely weird Yayoi Kusama "Tentacles and Tongues" display its stores, so Heather and I made an "Occupy Deluxe Tentacles" mask, then set off on a cheeky jape. The folks at the mall were good sports and didn't get in the way of the silliness.

I'm quite satisfied with how it turned out!


  1. It looks like he’s having fun. But.. well I hate to sound like a hater but the disturbing/exciting part of the design is Yayoi Kusama’s dots and tentacles, none of which are actually on the mask which looks like bruised meat. Okay I sound like a hater.. sorry. The most disturbing part is the lifelike figurine of Kusama in the window on Omotesando actually, so I guess I’m very glad his mask does not have orange hair or dark glasses.

      1. I was about to say that I thought I read that Kusama was working with LV here, but after a quick search it doesn’t appear to be an article here. Wonder where I read it then? Anyway, I can’t stand the logo stuff but the artist driven pieces are really wonderful. 

  2. Actually I find the statement of a LV (knockoff) occupy mask really funny and clever.

    This could be a series: Prada, Gucci,D&G, etc…

  3. I think part of the jape is the LV is exceptionally touchy about people using their trademarks in ANY way at all — sue first, ask questions later, but I bet the store manager was savvy enough to think, “If I ignore them, maybe they’ll go away.”

    Also: cute mutants doing mutant things are cute.

  4. For shame, harassing the fair and financially solvent conservatives of Ross Park Mall. And so soon after Uncle Mittens’ little setback. You’re terrible, Muriel.
