Louis Vuitton X Stephen Sprouse

Stephen Sprouse was a NY legend in the art, fashion, music scene running around with Warhol, Blondie & Basquiat. Sprouse could be credited of the marriage of graffiti and fashion with his collection in 1983. He was the first designer to have a store in Soho, and the first to “destroy” a LV bag in his iconic collaboration with Marc Jacobs. Now this sneaker pays homage to all of Stephen Sprouse’s pursuits , will be available in very limited quantities retail price is unknown.
In admiration of late fashion designer Stephen Sprouse, Louis Vuitton’s creative director Marc Jacobs will be revisiting his previous 2001 collaboration with Sprouse as inspiration for a 2009 collection. The new looks of accessories and ready-to-wear garments combine Sprouse-styled graffiti and rose motifs alongside Jacobs designs of course.
In Soho.
