The lovers of punk would know what the name Stephen Sprouse meant in the ’80s and the ’90s. Well, the inventive and enigmatic fashion designer gave the world a wonderful mix of graffiti and punk aesthetic, which by the way was a huge rage a decade ago.
So, now Louis Vuitton is all set to honour Sprouse, who dies in 2004, by showcasing a special designer’s collection (designed by Sprouse himself) at their SoHo store in New York. We hear that the store will exhibit the famous Stephen Sprouse graffiti skateboard which will be accompanied by a monogram hard case skateboard trunk and Stephen Sprouse Roses T-shirt.
About the price tags. Well, put $8,250 for one graffiti skateboard while the Tee (hurry, there are only 70 of them) shall come For $250 each. We think LV’s gesture will be appreciated by fashionistas the world over because Sprouse was the man who challenged convention and gave us something new. His influence lives through fashion and music even today.
