From Jeeves with LVoe: Sprouse Graffiti 2001 Hat Boxes
Hello, Let me first start off with saying that I love you blog and all your pictures. Recently I have seen you add some pictures of your views, so I wanted to share a few pictures with you. I have both graffiti hat boxes that were originally released in 2001. They both come with everything, keys, dust bag, and luggage tags. :) I though that your views would love seeing a "blast from the past". If you post it, it would be great, and if not, that is also fine too. Keep up the great work on your blog!!! Thanks, JeevesThe first Vuitton-Sprouse collaboration was released for Spring Summer of 2001 called the Graffiti collection "Stephen Sprouse for Louis Vuitton". Since the artist passed away in 2004 the later Graffiti line was changed to "Louis Vuitton for Stephen Sprouse". Marc Jacobs was quoted to say: “I tried to take what Stephen had done at Vuitton and then kind of flip it in my head, and make it Vuitton’s work for Stephen, not Stephen’s work for Vuitton." The original collaboration has its origins in the time when Jacobs was looking for a Paris apartment. When he looked at Charlotte Gainsbourg’s space on the rue du Bac, he stumbled across a Vuitton Monogram canvas trunk, which the actress’s legendary father, Serge, had painted over in black. It eventually inspired him to collaborate with Sprouse for spring 2001. “For me, this monogram graffiti was the first milestone of our permanent reinvention of our history,” said Vuitton president and chief executive officer Yves Carcelle.

LVoe it, LVoe, LVoe it!!!
