this morning i read in the news about a new book that’s paying homage to the late artist/designer stephen sprouse. i’ve never been wild about his stuff; all that graffiti & fluorescent color burns my eyes. it’s just fucking ugg. in 2001 i lost all respect for him when he collaborated with marc jacobs to design the neon-graffitied louis vuitton logo material. he died in 2004, but even from the big runway in the sky, he still manages to spray paint monogrammed vuitton handbags, making them even grosser. people still buy this shit. and thanks to my beloved marc jacobs, we can all relive the atrocious fashion that sprouse was famous for. here’s a little preview of the stephen sprouse for louis vuitton spring 2009 line:
so gross. the only thing that could possibly make these horrendous shoes any worse, would be to hang a charm from them. and i hate the american apparel-esque models above, too. sigh…just when i think i can’t love marc jacobs any more, he goes & sticks his hand in the graffiti paint pot. again. it’s so upsetting.
