Marc Jacobs Celebrates Launch of Stephen Sprouse-inspired Louis Vuitton Graffiti & Rose Collection

I swear it seems like a new Louis Vuitton style comes out every week! The good thing is most are available in limited editions but the designs are more of a fun fad and don’t transcend the seasons. The latest LV bags, apparel and accessories are from the Graffiti and Rose Collection.

Marc Jacobs and Stephen Sprouse first collaborated in 2001 to create the iconic Louis Vuitton Graffiti collection. Now the designer pays homage to Sprouse (who passed away in 2004) with the 2009 Graffiti and Rose Collection.

The new designs feature the same Sprouse-style graffiti – this time in not for the faint of heart Day-Glo colored graffiti (think neon pink, orange and green), overlaid on top of the Louis Vuitton Monogram print. The designs are on classic LV bags like the Speedy, Neverfull tote, and the large Keepall, as well as on sneakers, pumps, ballerina flats, leggings and scarves, bracelets and keychains.

Marc Jacobs’ said that the collection is actually not identical to the 2001 graffiti collection:

“I tried to take what Stephen had done at Vuitton and then kind of flip it in my head, and make it Vuitton’s work for Stephen, not Stephen’s work for Vuitton,” Jacobs said. “I just felt it was a funny way to play with it, to pretend to be Sprouse for a bit, and use the work that he did, and then bring it back to the work that he did before I collaborated with him.” – Marc Jacobs

Louis Vuitton’s new Graffiti and Rose Collection is already available in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide. Marc Jacobs recently appeared in Harper’s Bazaar January 2009 issue shot by Terry Richardson wearing nothing but Grafitti and the bags from the new collection.

Do you love the Louis Vuitton Graffiti redux? Are you planning to buy one of the pieces?
