The legendary Neverfull in a Stephen Sprouse design. The Neverfull, always exactly what you need it to be. Capacious but not bulky, structured yet supple, at home on the town or in the country. Cinch the side laces, and voilà! it’s a sleek city bag. Loosen them and you have a chic, practical tote. The slim leather handles fit over the shoulder or on the arm.
Born in 1953, Sprouse was a pioneer of the punk and pop trend of the eighties. A close friend of Andy Warhol, of whom he was a huge admirer, he became famous for his urban, New Yorker style, mixing art, rock music and fashion. His palette was an incredibe splash of bright colours. While working on his Spring/Summer 2001 Fashion Show, Marc Jacobs invited Stephen Sprouse to tag on Louis Vuitton bags. Using the Speedy, Keepall, Boite chapeaux, the artist played on the icons. At the same time, he also came up with the idea of a new pattern using huge digitized cabbage roses which he used on the catwalk. Sprouse died in 2004 so Louis Vuitton decided to pay homage to him by printing his leopard patterns on ready-to-wear and accessories as part of the Fall/Winter 2006-2007 Collection. Taking the opportunity of the first retrospective exhibition of the American artist, beginning in New York Deitch Gallery in January 2009, Marc Jacobs would like to pay tribute to the genius. Louis Vuitton will make his punk and fluo glamour live again, with an even stronger version of Graffiti and Roses on leather goods, shoes, ready-to-wear, accessories and jewellery.
