Louis Vuitton "Spot the Difference" films


"To celebrate the opening of the Louis Vuitton Kusama Concept Store at Selfridges London, Louis Vuitton and Selfridges have created 'Spot the Difference,' two [1, 2] playful short films starring the fashion blogger and style icon, Bip Ling.   
While the room spins to the verses of the Yayoi Kusama poem "Love Forever", viewers are invited to literally spot five differences between the two films. Visit the Louis Vuitton Yayoi Kusama Universe at"



Description from AdFreak:
"Louis Vuitton and Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama have joined forces for a new fashion collection, and they're promoting it in window displays and a pop-up store at London's Selfridges with a variation on "Spot the Difference." Blogger Bip Ling stars in two pairs of 60-second clips draped in Kusama's polka-dot Vuitton fashions while prancing around an artsy set, as bad poetry (also by Kusama) plays on the soundtrack. It's a sendup of the pretentious world of style, I guess. If you can spot five discrepancies between the clips, submit them to @LouisVuitton_UK (with the hashtag #LVKusama) by Sept. 7. to win a copy of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, illustrated by Kusama."
