Tonight in New York City we are celebrating Alejandro Ingelmo and street-culture artist, Kenny Scharf’s, sneaker collaboration. This is a product we are really excited about. Kenny Scharf’s work has been seen all over New York – including his work “Squirtz” seen right outside the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District. Scharf has made an entry for street art into the modern day contemporary art category… and now on shoes!
As we all know, socks are in. For men and women both, the sock trend is one that is here to stay… and we are okay with that. Socks are an easy, inexpensive, not to mention fun way to dress up any outfit. This trend will now be easier than ever for New Yorkers to follow thanks to the new Soho Happy Socks location opening this Friday.

[dropcap]L [/dropcap]ouis Vuitton and the Whitney Museum in New York are seeing dots. Famed Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has teamed up with Louis Vuitton for a collaboration, and is also being honored with a retrospective at the Whitney Museum Of Art in New York.
Yayoi Kusama is most known for her abstract and pop art scenes, polka dot technique and unique installations. Her exhibit at the Whitney, open July 12th through September 30th, showcases over 50 years of her work with the museum itself decorated in polka dots. In an interview with WWD on the exhibit’s grand opening, the 83 year old Kusama remarked “I’m genius.”
For the grand opening of the collaboration on Tuesday July 10, the Louis Vuitton Fifth Avenue Flagship unveiled its store window displays covered in dots and abstract shapes in Kusama’s designs, and Kusama herself arrived to the opening in a polka dotted wheelchair. The artist’s collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton, in stores worldwide now, stays true to Kusama’s style – RTW, handbags, and accessories covered in her classic polka dots.
Her exhibit at the museum as well as the collaboration with Louis Vuitton had been highly anticipated and on Tuesday night W magazine along with Louis Vuitton hosted a dinner at the Whitney Museum in New York City in the artist’s honor. The dinner party was held at the Whitney Museum and was a preview of what to expect from her exhibit. Stars including Dianna Agron, Lauren Santo Domingo, Harley Viera- Newtown, Margherita Missoni as well as many others were present and enthralled. “That’s the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in a long time,” Hannah Bronfman said to WWD in regards to the installation. Unfortunately Yayoi did not attend the dinner because she had spent most of the day at LV’s fifth avenue flagship during the store unveiling.
