In 1991 Stephen Sprouse moved into Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles for a month long stay. When it was time to check out, he could not afford the bill and Andre Balazs, the owner of the hotel, ended up making a deal with him, where Sprouse would be designing some apparel for the staff of Chateau Marmont, in exchange for his stay.
A couple of months ago, Andre Balazs went through the archives of the hotel, which are stores in the attic, and they came across 6 never seen before sketches by Stephen Sprouse, all signed and dated. We got our hands on images of one of the sketches, with the other 5 spread out on the internet on other sites. Hunt them down and check them all out.
The sketches will not be sold, but Hotel Marmont honors the designer with a postcard.
A more detailed look at the Stephen Sprouse sketch and a look at the postcard follows after the jump.
