    I remember a bright canary yellow coat of his , hanging in BROWNS of South Molton Street , London , in the early 80s.

    Did he not design the Louis Vuitton Graffiti bag ?

    A loss indeed . :cry:

    Yup. 2001,I think.

    And these designers out now like Zaldy and Heatherette hold no candle to what Stephen was doing in the 80's.

    What gets me,yet again,is that everybody seems to be dying;and not just once in a while but it seems like every week someone from fashion has passed. Amy last week...Stephen this week..its really sad that all our revolutionaries are gone. Especially stateside.

    this bums me out. i would never have guessed he was 50 in a million years..he looks like my pro skater friend matty ryan. that graffiti bag he did for lv was the only cool thing i've seen from them in a while

    :shock: he had still so many things to give, a true original :cry:

    he only recently had a collaboration with Diesel, it comes as a real big sad shock to me...

    his death is tragic, there is no doubt....and those graffiti bags he did for vuitton are no longer just fab fashion finds, they're authentic collector's items now.

    That's sad. Lung cancer? Boy, those cigarettes are a killer. I believe he was a smoker.
