Like I mentioned yesterday, to commence the release of the Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Tribute 2009 Collection, the Louis Vuitton boutique at “SoHo’s Greene Street will be transformed into a Sprouse destination in time for the collection’s arrival. HOTNESS! The company is wrapping the store in vinyl and spray painting neon graffiti all over the facade. The window display will feature a 6-foot neon light installation in Sprouse’s Rose motif. The store’s interior, enhanced with black brick wall facing, will also be sprayed with the neon graffiti. Vuitton will honor the late artist with three events this Thursday. The night will kick off with cocktails at the Vuitton boutique on Greene Street, with a simultaneous event at nearby Deitch Projects’ Wooster Street Gallery for the opening of the “Rock on Mars” Sprouse retrospective. Afterwards, Vuitton and Jacobs will host a bash at the Bowery Ballroom, featuring a performance by Sprouse’s friend Debbie Harry, followed by DJ Jus Ske. The venue is expected to have a Sprouse feel, with a special graffiti-and-neon decor.” Once again, the collection release this Thursday, January 8, 2009 at the SoHo boutique. via Hypebeast / 12ozProphet
From Friday, January 9, 2009 to Saturday, February 28, 2009, Deitch Projects will be hosting Rock on Mars, a retrospective exhibition of the work of Stephen Sprouse which will transform Deitch Projects’s 18 Wooster Street gallery into a realization of Sprouse’s rock and roll futuristic vision. Don’t miss out on it!
