The artist Yayoi Kusama has partnered with Louis Vuitton to launch a new line of clothing and accessories ahead of her upcoming retrospective at the Whitney Museum, Women’s Wear Daily reports this morning.

Ranging from trenchcoats and silk pajamas to a pendant necklace and wristwatch, the collection is due in Vuitton’s 461 stores in the days that follow the opening, with a second wave of products—hinged on monogram leather goods festooned with Kusama’s tentaclelike “nerves” motif—due out in October.

Louis Vuitton’s best-known artist collaboration began in 2002, when its creative director Marc Jacobs reached out to the artist Takashi Murakami.
