Marc Jacobs-designed, Sprouse-inspired

Most of us didn't have the funds in 2001 to buy the Stephen Sprouse Louis Vuitton collaborations, and I for one still don't. But many will be maxing out their credit cards this time around for the many covetable pieces that pay homage to Sprouse, who passed away in 2004. $8,000 skateboard anyone?

In time for the collection’s arrival last week, Louis Vuitton's boutique on SoHo’s Greene Street was transformed into a Sprouse destination. -14 degree (Celsius) weather or not, it is definatly worth checking out Sprouse’s gargantuan signature graffiti in neon and vinyl that covers the entire store front, and the 6-foot neon light installation of Sprouse’s Rose design.

And for those looking to spend their hard-earned paychecks, there are various small accessories under the $300 mark, including a gym set complete with head band and towel, neon pink bag charms and a limited edition Stephen Sprouse Roses T-shirt. Good luck shoppers.
