Stephen Sprouse's ROSE PRINT, centerpiece of LOUIS VUITTON's new window display

Louis Vuitton's flagship store window display currently features the ROSE PRINT by the artist and fashion designer STEPHEN SPROUSE. Louis Vuitton's 2001 “Graffiti” collection was a collaboration between MARC JACOBS and SPROUSE. Marc Jacobs, who is creative director for Louis Vuitton, pays tribute to the artist with a limited-edition collection of handbags, accessories, and ready-to-wear garments. In the new line, Jacobs plays off of two popular Sprouse motifs – the graffiti, and the rose print. Stephen Sprouse (September 12, 1953 - March 4, 2004) was a fashion designer and artist credited with pioneering the 1980s mix of "uptown sophistication in clothing with a downtown punk and pop sensibility". The store is located at Fifth Avenue and 57th Street.
