Vuitton Sprouse mania rides again!

default

Grazia is probably the biggest fan ever of Marc Jacobs' leopard print scarf, based on a print created by the late pop artist and designer Stephen Sprouse. Two years after its launch the scarf (what looked like a leopard print but which on closer inspection was actually a scattering of the letter "U" scrawled with a marker pen) is an iconic fashion piece that is as desirable as it is hard to get hold of. And this is where we get excited: Louis Vuitton have answered the prayers of all Sprouse LV fans and created a Louis Vuitton Sprouse limited edition collection of accessories and ready-to-wear which hits stores early next year. Jacobs has taken two iconic Sprouse motifs - the graffiti scrawl of "Louis Vuitton" and the rose - rendered in Day-Glo shades of pink, green and orange and splashed them over the LV Monogram. In turn the Monogram will be used for classic LV bags the Speedy and Neverfull as well as on sunglasses, sneakers, wallets and purses. When we checked out the first look as seen at WWD and the January edition of US Harpers Bazaar we totally love the leggings. We never thought we'd say this,  but bring on January! [WWD]
