CALL ME CRAZY.
A collection inspired by the life of Yayoi Kusama.
The design on each piece took inspiration from her colorful style of painting and trademark polka dots.
The splatter on the tees was inspired by the paint that covered the jacket and pants which were part of her collaboration with Louis Vuitton.
The message behind this collection sheds light on the stigma of mental health and how the word “CRAZY” can also seen as a blessing.
Artists like Yayoi make us question our understanding of mental illness and see it not as an obstacle. But just another part of the human condition. An extension of us.
After almost a century of hearing her critics call her crazy, she still kept creating her art. She is now arguably one of the greatest artists of our time.
They called her crazy.
