Marc Jacobs/Louis Vuitton tribute collection for Stephen Sprouse

I stole this hot piece of news from my friend Natasha's blog so thanks to her for being an avid MJ observer and posting it for me to enjoy!

 As a tribute to designer Stephen Sprouse, Marc Jacobs created a collection reminisicient of Sprouse's style and their collaboration. He uses graffiti and florals to "deface the monogram" and create new meaning for the bags and the brand. 

Even though I admire the brand and own a vintage piece (that I never use), I'm not a huge Louis Vuitton fan, but if Christmas hadn't just passed... I would have asked for something from this collection. It's by far my favorite variation of the classic monogram. 

My favorites: 

I love that this bag can be a clutch, wristlet or shoulder bag. Wristlets are perfect for dancing so you dont drop your pretty clutch on the gross floor! (me and flavs do it all the time and it makes us so mad)

I'd endure all kinds of public humilation for this scarf.

Check out a commentary of the collection via video by MJ himself. Plus, you get to see pictures of the collection that aren't on the We Love Sprouse site.

That video is good, I watched it earlier! That scarf is so pretty too, I've never been a huge LV fan either until recently.
