This week’s Grazia has a feature on the new Louis Vuitton/Stephen Sprouse tribute range, showcasing some of the neon graffitied and rose-motif printed bags, clothes and accessories from the collection. My first thoughts? Crikey it’s garish! I must confess, I’ve always hankered for one of the original graffed-up wallets or pochettes but I just didn’t get there fast enough (nor could I justify the poundage at the time).
Having properly navigated the very chic, post-punk stylee website – www.welovesprouse.com – I can say it’s growing on me. I particularly like the videos that explain about Sprouse and about Marc Jacobs’ vision behind this offering. (Sprouse died a view years ago so Jacobs was channelling Sprouse’s vision with this collection.) Check out Debbie Harry’s contribution here.
To be completely honest, the only thing I’d consider buying from this range is the wallets or the Neverful bag, everything else is just too (oh dear) young for me!
I can see this scarf being the first to sell-out. Cue a Grazia DPS (magazine-speak for ‘double-page spread’) in a month or so showcasing all the
sheep B-listers sporting it in their own ‘inimitable’ way.
Over to you…what’s your take?
