Louis Vuitton pay homage to Stephen Sprouse
Picking up almost exactly where their 2001 collaboration left off, Marc Jacob’s Louis Vuitton will release a special line of pieces incorporating the signature look of Sprouse’ work. This is part of an initiative to remember the great artist who died in 2004, which will also include a January photoshoot featuring Marc Jacob’s in his favourite new look, nude, in Harpers Bazaar, shot by Terry Richardson. Coinciding also with a retrospective — called “Rock on Mars” — at Deitch Projects’ 18 Wooster Street gallery from Jan. 8 to Feb. 28, and “The Stephen Sprouse Book,” by Roger Padilha and Mauricio Padilha, due out from Rizzoli New York on Feb. 1.
