Louis Vuitton and the Princess of Polka Dots

Just try to walk by this Helsinki store window and not look. There are many reasons that the French fashion house Louis Vuitton is one of the most valuable brands in the world, and marketing is one of them. Except for their keychain line, most of their products are beyond our budget.

The LV purse displayed just above the spotted octopus tentacles retails for nearly $1,000 here in Helsinki!

However, we love to watch for the next eye-catching window. You may remember the “Eggs and Legs” window in Florence.

The famous international artist Yayoi Kusama, a.k.a. “The Princess of Polka Dots” designed this window. She transforms the simple polka dot into high art and design.

Happy Trails,
