With the highly praised release from Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse collection, Patricia Field pays homage to the designer with a small capsule collection inspired by the iconic 80â€™s Sprouse. Field designs neon colored off the shoulder shirts, dresses and mini skirts all with reasonable price tags.
What a night for Team Pull it off aka the Token Blacks! I ran into a bunch of people @ this event. Models, Va$hite, Cudi, Jus Ske, Barry. Apparently Old school art folks dig ya boi FB’s swag. I had this one older blond trying to take advantage of me. It was an open bar event of course…so you know what it is! Bottle poppin for realz…thanks Marc Jacobs & the great folk of LV. Got some footage of Cudi’s performance in front of Stephen Sprouse visual. I started out co-managing Cudi with Pat. I’ve seen him perform this song a million times. For me personally it was one of my favorite shows from him. It showed & proved his star power.
Damm…This is one of the illest things i’ve seen in a minute! Shoutout to everyone that ever went bombing & taggin!
Honoring the late, great Stephen Sprouse and his upcoming tribute collection designed by Louis Vuitton creative director Marc Jacobs, the Louis Vuitton store in SoHo has plastered a gargantuan print across their storefront. The display can surely be attributed to the mass influence graffiti holds in the world of fashion. On a side note, Deitch Projects will be holding a show in collaboration with Louis Vuitton, premiering this Friday January 9th, 2009 in celebration of the Stephen Sprouse collection.
This definitely got the oh shit effect. I’m not a skater, but respect the art or skating. I rode bmx & skated with blades when I was a shorty. Not really into posting items people can’t afford. This board and case caught be off guard.
â€œFor instance, the company is wrapping the store in vinyl and spray painting neon graffiti all over the facade. The window display will feature a 6-foot neon light installation in Sprouseâ€™s Rose motif. The storeâ€™s interior, enhanced with black brick wall facing, will also be sprayed with the neon graffiti.
The collection will launch in its entirety at the SoHo boutique on Thursday. The complete worldwide launch will follow on Feb. 2, though the Rose pieces will be available at Louis Vuitton stores worldwide starting Friday.
For the launch, the luxury goods company is also creating two limited edition pieces, which will only be available at the SoHo location: a Stephen Sprouse graffiti skateboard replete with a hard case monogram skateboard trunk, and a Stephen Sprouse â€œRosesâ€ T-shirt. The company hopes to sell three graffiti skateboards with trunks for $8,250 each, and 70 T-shirts for $250 each. â€œI donâ€™t expect them to last very long,â€ Lalonde said. â€œBy Friday, there probably wonâ€™t be any more left.â€
So ill…nYc is the mecca of it all…I’m tell you! The old pics make s me wanna go bombing!
