Coz' in stores now is Marc Jacobs' new, limited-edition Sprouse-Vuitton collection.
A homage to the late artist, Jacobs, who collaborated with Sprouse to give Louis Vuitton its turnaround in spring 2001, says he incorporated some of the "icons and lasting aesthetics that Stephen left in the fashion world".
Sprouse turned the old-world luxury icon Louis Vuitton into a Pop Art collectible for the young fashion elite.
He was able to turn something iconic and venerable, something respected and old, making it new again by defacing it.
I find his rebellious aesthetic more than inspirational.
