Remembering Sprouse

The late Stephen Sprouse who rocked the boat with an independentfashion line inspired by punk and graffiti is the subject of much attention these days in the fashion rags. I had no idea who he was until a few months ago when Marc Jacobs (the other MJ) showed off several pieces giving stylistic tribute to his friend who passed away of in 2004. Originally conceived just for the catwalk the neon scrawled bags and shoes were a huge hit catching Louis V corporate a bit off guard. Jacobs sent the fashion obsessed hip hop crowd in a frenzy.
