    Default LV graffiti purses

    Am I the only one who thinks the graffiti purses are ugly? I wouldn't carry one for free.

    Famous NYC graffiti artist? I didn't know there was such a thing. Does he paint on canvas or on trains and overpasses?

    Marc Jacobs always collaborated with artists.

    Here is an article about Stephen Sprouse by BERRY BERENSON

    Stephen Sprouse 1953-2004: a tribute to the man who put pop into fashion's palette
    Interview, May, 2004 by Berry Berenson

    How does one label an artist who hated labels? Such is the dilemma when describing the life and work of Stephen Sprouse, the fashion designer, painter, pop-punk visionary, and longtime Interview contributor who died in March at the age of 50.

    Paige Powell, a close friend of Sprouse's, remembers first meeting him in the early 1980s at Andy Warhol's Factory, which was also home to Interview. "Stephen would come up and have lunch," she recalls. "He was extremely shy, but he constantly provided Andy with energy. He was just so rock 'n' roll."

    And he was a perfect embodiment of the cultural renaissance of the times, when the barriers separating high and low, uptown and downtown, and fashion and art---once as solid and redoubtable as the Berlin Wall--came crashing down and everything from painting to politics came together. Sprouse was front and center for this big bang, and he carried with him throughout life the idea that art could exist without boundaries.

    Case in point: his 2001 design collaboration with Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, in which Sprouse splashed graffiti across Vuitton's leather goods, giving the iconic company a much-coveted shot of cool. Some remarked that Sprouse was at it again, blurring the line between high and low, but the truth is that for Sprouse, notions of high and low had long since gone the way of the dinosaurs.

    "He loved the future and anything futuristic," says Powell. Here we take a look back at a pivotal moment in Sprouse's life, when the then-30-year-old maverick spoke with Berry Berenson about his past, his present, and his vision of things to come.

    Uptown sophistication meets downtown imagination in the pop culture clothes of designer Stephen Sprouse. With a fluorescent orange wool overcoat worn over a bright yellow tank dress and graffiti-print headband coming at you, it's not too difficult to recognize the work of this 30-year-old designer. His growing success is substantiated by well-made, classically-styled, seasonless garments, It's the American clothes tradition with the Sprouse twist: cashmere T-shirts, sequined miniskirts with the words "peace," love," and "rock." Day-Glo yellow flannel hip-hugger bell bottoms printed with black graffiti, and Sprouse's re-styled, silver graffiti-printed engineer boots.

    Sprouse got into the business at the age of ten when columnist Eugenia Sheppard wrote a raving article in the "New York Herald Tribune" on one of his "imaginary collections." His Indiana-based family encouraged their child with summer trips to New York, where at the age of twelve he found and apprenticeship with Bill Blass, and later with Coty Award-winner Leo Narducci. A few years later he was studying fine art at the Rhode Island School of Design, until he was offered a job as Halston's assistant. After three years of intense experience and pressure, he took time off for painting and photography, and in that time developed patterns and silkscreen techniques which uses today.

    I actually like the Graffiti bags... I guess because they are old school now. Very rare to have one. I personally like the Peach Graffiti.

    It's all a matter of personal taste.
    I own the graffiti pochette, and for me, it's a collector's item.

    I like the graffiti on monogram bags, but not the black and white or peach and white ones. One day I'd like something from this line, but I can never find one in a condition I like with a price I like.
