After the successful collaboration of Louis Vuitton and artist Stephen Sprouse in 2001, the two team up for the second time, utilizing the very same graffiti print. This time around they worked on bags, sneakers, shoes, sunglasses as well as some clothing and many more accessories.
Just in time for the “Rock On Mars” retrospective that will be taking place at Deitch Projects from January 8th, and the release of “The Stephen Sprouse Book”, Louis Vuitton will be coming out with the commemorative collection this month.
Along with the release of the product, Louis Vuitton will launch welovesprouse.com, a website dedicated to the artist, showcasing interviews with people that knew Sprouse. In celebration of the new LV release, Marc Jacobs posed nude painted in Sprouse’s graffiti print for Harper’s Bazaar’s January issue, which was shot by Terry Richardson. Via WWD/TBA.
Let’s see how fast the collection will sell out this time around. Detailed images of some of the product, as well as the Terry Richardson image of Marc Jacobs follow after the jump.
