oh stephen .

Stephen Sprouse is a famed fashion designer and artist. Even though he died in 2004 he's still relevant. His work defined the 1980s with its vibrant, bursting colors. He was said to have 'pioneered the merging of downtown streetwear with uptown high fashion' as stated on We Love Stephen Sprouse. Marc Jacobs was a fan of his work and they worked together for Louis Vuitton's Spring and Summer 2001 collection. Their Graffiti bag, featured below, sold out and became a collector's item.

This year, Marc Jacobs has been working to showcase the work of the late Stephen Sprouse in a new collection. There is also a book on Stephen and his work. Many celebs have been seen wearing the graffiti bag such as Kim Kardashian, Agyness Deyn, Paris Hilton, Khloe Kardashian and Madonna. There is also a line of leggings with the same design by Louis Vuitton. The Keepall 50 runs for $1,610 and the Speedy 30 runs for $1,180 and they come in lots of bright colors such as lime green, orange and pink.
