AMERICAN GRAFFITI: Marc Jacobs, whose 2001 collaboration with Stephen Sprouse opened a floodgate of possibilities for Louis Vuitton, has another major homage in the works, WWD has learned: Sprouse. “I totally channeled Stephen,” Jacobs said of a new capsule collection he designed for Vuitton, to be sold in tandem with a retrospective at Deitch Projects in New York in January. Sprouse, who died in 2004, was a major figure in New York’s art and fashion scene in the Eighties, known for his streetwise aesthetic and Day-Glo graffiti. The new Vuitton range, which Jacobs describes as “very Sprouse,” includes T-shirts and dresses in matte jersey, along with sunglasses, a towel, a sweatband and bracelets. And the pièce de résistance is a custom-made skateboard and skateboard case, which Jacobs said would be auctioned off.
