graffiti please, louis!

I went to the Oslo boutique yesterday to try the Graffiti piece I had my SA put aside for me. When I tried it on, I didn’t feel too good about it. I don’t know. Maybe it was the color of my shirt. It was too much. I felt it’s too out there.

Until I got home. Until I sat at my office the whole day today looking at pics of this limited piece on tPF and on LV’s website. Until it gave me the disturbia that I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Couldn’t keep me glued on my seat. So when the clock struck half past four, I rushed out of the building, took the first bus and went straight to Louis Vuitton.

Approaching the first SA I saw.

“I changed my mind. I’m getting the Pareo.”








Thank god I returned to get it. I love love LVoe it! While it’s actually a sarong (yes, a sarong!) it can be worn as a scarf that’s great for springtime and cool summer days. Finally, I’ve gotten a piece off the Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Graffiti 2009 collection. This should do until something else gives me yet another disturbia. Hahaha!



Louis Vuitton x Stephen Sprouse Monogram Graffiti Pareo

A tribute to New York artist Stephen Sprouse, who collaborated with Marc Jacobs on Louis Vuitton’s iconic 2001 graffiti collection, this lightweight sarong is splashed with bold graffiti signatures.Size: 150 x 80 cm / 59,1 x 31,5 inches. 100% cotton. Louis Vuitton graffiti signature designed by Stephen Sprouse. £200.

Update: I figured a way to wear the Pareo the way I like it. That’s extra 2,386 points for the Pareo. Woohoo!

    That’s twisted! Pun intended. Hahaha! Thank you, dd! I would have regretted it big time had I not returned to the store and picked it up. Can’t wait for milder temperatures. It’s too darn cold up here to use it.

    Thanks, Kev! It was so hard to capture the right colors under incandescent lighting. I love the green of it. Go get one too!

    Wow Mark, does it glow in the dark? Nice on you. If I had one, not sure how to wear it kasi parang intimidating for me, hehehe.

  15. 16 freshmess January 17, 2009 at 3:56 pm

    @ K – Hehehe. It looks luminous under dark lighting, and I’m sure it will glow under UV lights. Why don’t you pass by your store again and try it? Thank you, btw.

    Congratulations Mark, I’m so glad (and relieved) you came to your senses and went back to get the Pareo. It really does look stunning on you. Graffiti is HOT HOT HOT!!

  18. 21 freshmess January 21, 2009 at 3:59 pm

    Thank you LVMode! Now I’m on the hunt for a black light so I could experiment whether the cotton Graffiti glows in the dark, too (like your Rose Speedy and Graffiti charm!) :)

    Hi i have the same piece!!

    May i know how to wear it like that in the last picture… how did you do it. Thanks.

  20. 23 freshmess January 25, 2009 at 11:47 pm

    Hi sCrAtcHy, I folded the Pareo every third of the entire length to make a square, folded it a second time to make a triangle and then just tied it around my neck. Congrats, btw!
