Helloooooo Ladies: The Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Vernis Roses Collection = Waaaaaaaaaaay Better Than A Dozen Roses On Valentine's Day.

"On April 1st, Louis Vuitton will be continuing the tribute to Stephen Sprouse by launching the Vernis Roses collection; a transfer of the artist’s symbolic rose on a Monogram embossed leather. The Vernis Roses collection is an eye catching interpretation of the iconic Alma and a new coin purse, both existing in three flashy Vernis colors: Rose Pop, Orange Sunset and Vert Tonic. The Vernis Rose Alma retail for $2,730 and the Vernis Rose Coin Purse retail for $485. Starting April 1st the collection will be available at Louis Vuitton stores and on

The bag is really pretty, the rose looks so good on top of the pink! Do you like it or not?"

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Ohhhhhhh, poor Stephen Sprouse and his graffiti tinged legacy. In a conspiratorial confluence of events that threatens the very fabric of the fashion/time continuum, the re-introduction of the phenomenon that is the Stephen Sprouse collection for Louis Vuitton came @ just the same time as Hip Hop automated trendoids have mechanically chosen to follow anything neon colored. Tacky is as tacky does. If I see another man wearing this season's Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse women's ski boots I will shoot them ... like, really ... lol. This dreadful Day-Glo development is in no way a reflection on Louis Vuitton, but, rather, is a testament to the assembly line approach to fashion that most people take today. Ironically, the entire Pop-Art movement that Stephen Sprouse was an integral part of was all about the juxtaposition of the consumption of popular cultural icons and fine art - so, mass fashion freaks, the joke is on Y.O.U.! LOL.

Anyway, the latest addition to this glam graffiti range is the "Vernis Roses" collection featuring the Louis Vuitton Vernis Rose Alma handbag and the Vernis Rose Coin Purse and, as is the case with 95% of this collection, both are brilliant.

The Litmus test for most trendoids comes when faced with an item that lacks a typically and universally recognizable brand logo. Without the name Louis Vuitton or an "LV" monogram plastered on this bag (NOTE: An embossed "LV" logo is not easily recognizable, consequently, throwing off most trendoid's sensors and often going undetected), me thinks that these gems should be safe for true stylistas to enjoy. No bootleggers in sight = the coast is clear to cop ma ... lol. Holla @ ya boy in BK!
