Louis Vuitton x Sprouse Collection
This photo of supermodel Agyness Deyn just surfaced over the weekend, and she is toting no other than the soon-to-be-released Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse collabo collection. The limited edition handbags, shoes, scarves, and accessories will be reworkings of the previous 2001 collaboration designs. However, this time, Sprouse's trademark graffitti designs and logos will be printed onto styles such as "The Speedy" (picture above) in bright neon colors.
I love this collection-- it's really tapping into the alternative cultures (particularly urban culture) that have embraced the Louis Vuitton brand over the years.
A highly regarded graffitti artist who transitioned into the world of fashion, Stephen Sprouse passed away in 2004 due to complications of lung cancer. The release of the new collection will coincide with the Jan 2009 publication of a book on his life and career.
