Louis Vuitton will be commissioning a selection of graffiti artists in tribute of their Stephen Sprouse campaign. Reyes from Seventh Letter Crew has been involved with the the San Francisco store. Skam an OG writer from Toroto got a chance to show off his tribute at the Toronto LV location this week.
I’m glad to see street artist get an opportunity to work with luxury brands.
“The evening was in tribute to artist/fashion designer Stephen Sprouse (September 12, 1953 – March 4, 2004), who was credited with pioneering the 1980s mix of uptown sophistication in clothing with a downtown punk and pop sensibility. In recent times, the graffiti logo bags he designed in collaboration with Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton in 2001 made the fashion world take notice of his work once again. This VIP, invite only evening was unique space for him to create in (no outlines were used, strictly freehand) and all of this was done in-store, on the fly and in front of the crowd of industry insiders, fashion editors, buyers, models, media, tastemakers, fashionista’s and impresario’s” Stirling
