STEPHEN SPROUSE. I'm all about Sprouse at the moment. I trawl eBay and second-hand shops looking for day-glo camouflage, purple bullets, graffiti crucifixes and psychedelic punks. Stephen was never a fashion designer in the traditional sense. Stephen was a painter and a genius graphic designer who was able to capture the visual essence of the moment in his patterns. He wasn't about cut-on-bias or draping, but he was about images that had both movement and sound. Clear sequins glittering over "GOD SAVE NEW YORK". All that color launched on a sea of New York black. So sad that Stephen died just as he was enjoying another wave of popularity with Vuiton, Target, Diesel, Knoll fabrics and his own re-launched label. In the back of your closet today – in the Metropolitan Museum Costume Institute tomorrow.
