About Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse
High fashion and designer labels are not all about classic, clean lines and old standbys, the good ones dare to be bold, different, and fresh. At the dawn of the millennium in fashion, Louis Vuitton, Steven Sprouse, and Marc Jacobs decided to do just that by introducing a defaced version of the classic LV monogram handbag in what has become a new icon for the LV brand. Influenced by the work of Marcel Duchamp, Marc Jacobs, the creative director for Louis Vuitton at the time, wanted to bring in fresh, young consumers to the label. Steven Sprouse, a pioneer in the fashion world who seamlessly integrated high fashion with street art and punk-inspired designs, created a graffiti version of the classic LV monogram which Jacobs splashed on everything from the Speedy bag to the pouchette. The limited edition Louis Vuitton Steven Sprouse collection continues to attract young buyers to the label by offering them the quality of Louis Vuitton along with the urban look of their generation. The collection comes in different handbag styles, and are easy to find from sellers on eBay. Additional items, such as the Louis Vuitton Steven Sprouse scarf, further extend the reach of this collection. Elevating the art of the streets, and fusing the worlds of pop culture and high fashion define this innovative collection.
