Calvin Klein has announced its exciting new partnership with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which will last through 2020.
For the first time ever, the foundation is granting the American fashion brand unlimited access to the complete oeuvre of the Pope of Pop. Anything from Warhol’s iconic celebrity portraits to his controversial screen-prints will soon make their appearance across the Calvin Klein universe — unpublished rarities included.
The news should come as no surprise. After all, we did get a taste of the collaboration back in September, when Creative Chief Officer Raf Simons unveiled the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Spring 2018 collection at New York Fashion Week.
Recall the airy nightgowns stamped with monochromatic prints from Warhol’s Death and Disaster Series, or the tank tops emblazoned with the artist’s portraits of Sandra Brant and Dennis Hopper: all artworks featured were courtesy of none other than The Andy Warhol Foundation.
